The Los Angeles Rams are merely hours away from their Monday Night Football meeting against Tom Brady’s Buccaneers in Tampa Bay. The Rams and Bucs feature two of the best defenses in the NFL and in some ways their offenses may be closer to even than the stats would immediately suggest.
This is also one of the most important games for the season in terms of NFC playoff seeding.
The Rams are 6-3 and a win would move them back into first place in the NFC West, keeping them within a game of the New Orleans Saints for the top seed. The Bucs are 7-3 and a win would similarly keep them in striking distance of the Saints. Both teams are relatively close to locking in playoff berths but a loss for either would be destructive to their hopes of a division title.
Before we get to the game, I have five questions to ask the abundantly knowledgeable Turf Show Times community about what you’d like to see from Los Angeles or perhaps what you don’t want to see from Tampa Bay. I welcome all kinds of answers from all kinds of people and am eager to hear not only where you might agree with me, but where you don’t.
You have as much of a right to an opinion on the Rams as I do. That’s why I’ll be doing the asking this time and you feel free to do the answering.
