Week 4: Green Bay Packers (Away)
Thank goodness this is only a preseason game for the Los Angeles Rams against the Green Bay Packers since everybody knows just how dangerous Aaron Rodgers and company can be on offense when it matters the most. By this time in preseason, most teams tend to focus on playing the guys fighting for a roster spot, which means there’s a good chance the Rams won’t even have to worry about facing Rodgers beyond the first quarter.
Last year, the Packers turned out to be one of the biggest surprises towards the end of the regular season after all hope seemed lost after Week 11 when the team was sitting with a 4-6 record. But instead of hitting the panic button, and worrying about missing out on the playoffs, Green Bay put together one of the greatest finishes to the end of the regular season by winning out to claim the NFC North title over the Detroit Lions.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, Rodgers found a way to help the Packers be on the verge of reaching the Super Bowl despite a lack of running game before falling to the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship. For a team that won four games all of last year, three games against playoff contenders from a year ago will certainly be a good test for the Rams before the start of the 2017 regular season, and it will be interesting to see how well they matchup against these contenders.
