Random Ramsdom: Why will LA lose to the Ravens this Sunday?

Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 12/8/23

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Hey thanks for checking out some links today! Normally I ask things like “Do you expect the Los Angeles Rams to win this week?” Or something like that, and a friend of mine suggested I mix it up and ask fans why they think the Rams could lose? I thought it sounded like a fun idea!

So, talk to me Goose, why might LA lose this Sunday? The Weather? The Baltimore Ravens offense and Lamar Jackson? Will LA’s offense be stuck in the mud literally and perhaps metaphorically? Do you think LA is going to win? I think that’s a hot take myself, but I sure do hope the Rams can find a way to get this W.

Please let us know what you think, comment on whatever you’d like and have a great Friday!

Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford Preparing For Likely Rain Game vs. Baltimore Ravens (ramsdigest)

“Rest assured for Rams fans, Stafford is making sure that he’s adequately prepared for the elements by using a wet ball in practice.

“Like you can squirt the ball with water and then inevitably in a game you’re going to get some snaps where you’re like, ‘Oh, the ball is pretty dry, I can throw it here,’ and other times you’re going to get it and you’re like, ‘I can’t,’ you know?” Stafford told reporters Wednesday. “You just kind of got to go play each play as its own and you can’t expect for it to be perfect every single time but you do get a good grip on it every once in a while and try to put it in a good spot. And if not, then figure out a way to get around it.”

Obviously, weather conditions don’t affect just one team in a game. The Ravens are also bracing for the elements, and coach John Harbaugh explained how they affect his game plan.”

Upset Alert? Baltimore Ravens Listed as Touchdown Favorite vs. Los Angeles Rams (ravenscountry)

“It is no coincidence that the return of veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford from the right thumb injury that he suffered in their Week 8 loss to the Dallas Cowboys has seen them get back to their winning ways.

Since his injury, Stafford has been at the center of the Rams’ success, completing 63 percent of his passes for 698 yards with eight touchdowns and just two interceptions.

Although Stafford isn’t the only one whose return from injury has immediately boosted the Rams’ play, as running back Kyren Williams has had a similar effect. Since missing four games with an ankle injury, the former Notre Dame back has rushed for 231 yards in his last two games, spotlighting a run game that has been much improved from years past.”
