The NFL finally released the official schedule for the upcoming regular season, and it is an interesting slate for the Rams. I’ll post the whole thing, and then I’ll discuss some of the more interesting

Sunday, Nov. 25: at Arizona, 3:15
Sunday, Dec. 2: vs. San Francisco, noon
Sunday, Dec. 9: at Buffalo, noon
Sunday, Dec. 16: vs. Minnesota, noon
Sunday, Dec. 23: at Tampa Bay, noon
Sunday, Dec. 30: at Seattle, 3:15 p.m.
The first four weeks aren’t going to be easy, especially starting off in Detroit. Washington doesn’t scare me, but at Chicago is tough ans Seattle is always difficult. The back-to-back with Green Bay and New England (in London) is brutal, as is coming out of the bye at San Francisco and against the Jets. The Buffalo, Minnesota, Tampa run late should all be winnable, and closing at Seattle could be a big game.
Overall, the schedule isn’t nearly as tough as last season, but it certainly isn’t easy. There are some difficult stretches, but I like our last four matchups to close the season. If the Rams do find themselves in a playoff hunt, those last few games could work out nicely.
