The Los Angeles Rams and quarterback Matthew Stafford are gearing up to take on the Detroit Lions and Jared Goff. Instead of donning royal and bone, Goff returns to SoFi Stadium dressed in Honolulu blue.

The Rams are 5-1 and the Lions are 0-6, but the intrigue is higher than typical for a matchup between two teams on opposite ends of the standings. This figures to be an emotional battle between Sean McVay and his former signal caller. Both individuals will be doing all they can to prove the other wrong.

This week Robert Finn and JB Scott preview this anticipated matchup — beginning with breaking news on a Rob Havenstein contract restructure and what it could mean for the trade deadline — and provide bold predictions on just how early you will see each team pull their starters. Will the Rams prove able to stop a tough Lions run game? Can LA apply pressure and force Goff to make mistakes? Does Matthew Stafford hope to prove that he’s worth more than two first round picks and a middling quarterback?
