For the first time since the beginning of the season the Rams finally got back into the win column by defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars 34-20. The task ahead does not get any easier unfortunately as the Rams have to play the Texans and Panthers both on the road, before they have to play the division leading Seahawks.
However, we will take it one game at a time and focus on the Texans for now. The Texans came into the season as possible favorites to win the AFC South and the AFC for that matter. Unfortunately for them that just hasnt been the case. The Texans have lost 3 straight games and in the two games they did win it took a few last minute miracles to pull them out.
Matt Schaub has been a giant problem for the Texans this season. In the past four games Schaub has thrown at least one interception that went for a touchdown, including one that basically gave the Seahawks the win in week four. It is uncertain who the Texans will turn to this upcoming week. Will they stick with Matt Schaub, or will they turn to two time playoff victor T.J. Yates.
Whoever the Texans do go to the Rams will definitely have their hands full. The Texans still have Arian Foster, Ben Tate, Andre Johnson, and DeAndre Hopkins they have to manage, not to mention all the playmakers on the other side of the ball featuring JJ Watt. The Texans have plenty of talent, but whether or not take advantage of that talent is another question. The last time the Rams took a trip to Texas the result was embarrassing. The Rams will definitely be hoping for a better result this time around. This definitley wont be their first rodeo.
The Rams may have just caught the Texans at the perfect time, and in the right year. The past few season the Texans have been a powerhouse, this season has been a completely different story.The Texans are banged up and there are a lot of major questions surrounding this team which features the questions at quarterback. Whenever you have questions surrounding the quarterback, it’s never a good thing.
The Rams have found their winning formula along with their run game. Like mentioned before the Rams are going to have their hands full this week, but this game is definitely not a for sure loss, the Rams do have a chance of leaving Houston with a victory. If the Rams get a win at Houston they will move to 3-3,be back at .500, and then things will start to get very interesting going into the middle part of the season.
