Week 5: @ Green Bay Packers

Consecutive road games for this young squad and a serious test against a Super Bowl contender in Green Bay. Aaron Rodgers is looking like an MVP candidate and Eddie Lacy is a bulldozing back. The once glimmering Rams offense is beginning to sputter and struggle to keep up with the running attack Jeff Fisher had imagined. Gurley and Mason struggle to put things together on the ground and the wide receivers aren’t helping things either. This one was over before it started and St. Louis falls below .500 headed into the bye week. Rams 14 – Packers – 34 Record 2-3

Week 6: BYE

Week 7: Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns come to town sporting one of the worst records in football, 1-5. A carousel of running backs and read option with Johnny football have placed them in an incredible hole, and that’s just what the doctor ordered for a struggling Rams team. The defense comes alive and shuts down an offense that highlights 30-year old wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. Nick Foles comes alive in a four touchdown performance and St. Louis is right back on track with a huge win.                           Rams 31 – Browns 10 Record 3-3

Week 8: San Francisco 49ers

The halfway point. St. Louis has held their own and now get their first look at a depleted 49ers roster. Key losses in the offseason have taken the once high and mighty San Francisco squad and turned them into division basement dwellers. First year head coach Jim Tomsula is in way over this head as the Rams take out a few seasons worth of frustration on a team that is a shadow of it’s former self. The offense gets things going on the ground in a big way for the first time all year and both Gurley and Mason go for almost 200 all-purpose yards in the rookies first impact performance.                Rams 24 – 49ers 13 Record 4-3
