Following the Rams’ second loss in a row, they saw no movement in ESPN’s latest round power rankings, staying put at No. 13. Their opponent this week, the 8-7 Cardinals, are one spot behind them while the 10-5 Dolphins are just ahead at No. 12.

The Rams will unfortunately be without starting quarterback Jared Goff in the season finale as they attempt one last time to improve on their 9-7 record from a year ago. There’s a chance the Cards will be without their QB, as well, after Kyler Murray sustained a leg injury near the end of their loss to the 49ers.

After a wildly competitive year in the NFC West, it’s extremely anti-climatic to imagine the season finale being played with two backup quarterbacks, but it is still 2020, after all.

Now for today’s links.
