According to ESPN’s Aaron Schatz, the Rams have the 13th-hardest remaining schedule left among NFL teams. Their final seven games includes away games at Tampa Bay, Arizona, and Seattle, but their three easiest matchups left will thankfully all be at home in SoFi.
“The Rams’ overall schedule gets a little bit harder the rest of the way because the offenses they’re facing get harder,” says Schatz. “That starts this week with a game at Tampa Bay on Sunday night, but it also includes a rematch with Seattle in Week 16 and home-and-home with Arizona in Weeks 13 and 17. The Rams do get four of their final seven games at home, though, including the three easiest remaining opponents: San Francisco, New England and the Jets.”
The final seven-game stretch sets up well for the Rams to potentially finish with double-digit wins, which would improve on their 9-7 record from a year ago. All four of those home games look pretty winnable, and there’s still obviously a chance they steal one of the away games, too.
Finishing the season 10-6, or even 11-5, is right within their grasp. This team just has to play to their potential, the one they’ve shown several times already this season.
