There’s plenty of speculation about what the final playoff picture will look like. The Los Angeles Rams are in the thick of it, and some projections have them facing off against the Detroit Lions after the regular season ends. Kelly Stafford, and you can read about it more below, seems excited about the potential of those two teams playing against each other for a postseason match. The Lions clinched a playoff spot already, while LA is still fighting to get in.

There is still so much to be determined. This will be talked about again, but what do you think of LA’s chances vs Detroit? Who would you like to see the Rams go against in the playoffs? I suppose let’s hope the Rams get there first.

Thanks so much for checking out some links today! Please comment on whatever you’d like and have a great Saturday!

‘LFG!’ Staffords Ready For Lions vs. Rams in NFC Playoffs? (ramsdigest)

“The Detroit Lions, before this weekend, hadn’t won the NFC North in ... literally forever - something Matthew Stafford and his wife Kelly know all too well.

But they’ve done it now, and the wife of the Los Angeles Rams quarterback is celebrating ... from afar.

“I am so happy about this,” Kelly Stafford wrote on social media. “(I’m) a fan unless we are playing them. LFG.”

That is a lovely sentiment, and understandable in every way. Stafford, the former No. 1 overall pick in his NFL Draft, spent a dozen years of his NFL career with the Lions, putting up big numbers - he threw for 45,109 yards and 282 touchdowns there - without big team success.”

Rams’ Puka Nacua, Ernest Jones Questionable vs. Giants – Injury Tracker (ramsdigest)

“DEC 29 RAMS-GIANTS FINAL INJURY REPORT The Los Angeles Rams are gearing up for their final game of the 2023 calendar year when they travel to face the New York Giants and potentially clinch a playoff spot.

Ahead of the New Year’s Eve date, both teams released their final injury reports of the week, and there are some notable new names on the list for the visiting team.

Rams

Did Not Participate: DB Tre Tomlinson (hamstring; out), WR Puka Nacua (hip; questionable), LB Ernest Jones (illness; questionable), DT Aaron Donald (resting), OL Brian Allen (resting), OL Alaric Jackson (thigh; questionable)”

Giants-Rams Week 17 DraftKings prop bets: High-scoring game (bigblueview)

“With that being said, here are some of the best prop bets for Giants-Rams. Once again, I try to combine the more obvious picks with some deeper options that are more likely than the odds say they are.

Matthew Stafford: Over 257.5 passing yards (-115)

Stafford has exceeded 257.5 passing yards in his last four games. He averages 260.6 passing yards per game. The Giants rank 20th with 229.7 passing yards allowed per game, and they allowed 301 to Jalen Hurts last week after Hurts had gone under 200 yards the prior two weeks.

Wan’Dale Robinson: Under 33.5 receiving yards (-110)

Robinson has gone over 33.5 receiving yards in just five out of 13 games this season. His second-highest yardage total came with Taylor at the helm against Buffalo, but he had just one catch for 22 yards the following week and was shut out the next. Robinson’s average depth of target is so short that it could take five receptions for him to reach 33.5 yards. That’s not a bet I’m willing to take.”
