This weekend, the Rams travel to Detroit to take on one of this decades worst football teams, the Lions.
The Lions have managed to pull of one win against the Washington Redskins, while the Rams on the other hand, are yet to come out on top during any of their seven contests. So far Spags has somehow been able to keep this team focused and keep their spirits high and if he can carry that attitude into this week’s game, then the Rams have a legitimate shot at picking up a win. For all of you saying “Its the Lions, how hard can it be,” keep in mind that most Lions fans are probably thinking the exact same thing about the Rams. In the end its going to be a very close game that may come down to who can mess up the least.
For the Lions, QB Matthew Stafford may be able to return this week, but if not then the Rams will see an out of sync Daunte Culpepper leading the Detroit offense. Their running game is led by second year starter Kevin Smith while they rely on the Johnson duo of Calvin and Bryant in the passing game.
For the Rams, they received some bad news this week in terms of injuries. LS Chris Massey and CB Bradley Fletcher are both out for the year with ACL injuries. RB Steven Jackson is still looking for his first touchdown of the season despite being among the league leaders in virtually every other rushing category. QB Marc Bulger on the other hand, looks to bounce back from a rough outing from a rough outing against the Colts, but I believe he’ll be fine now that he isn’t going up against one of the better defensive lines and safeties in the game.
The game will be Sunday at 1 pm (ET) on Fox.
