The Los Angeles Rams are, at least as of the bye week, better on the road than home in the Coliseum. With wins in San Francisco, Dallas, and Jacksonville, LA is 3-0 on the road not counting the “home game” played in London. And 2-2 at home, counting Twickenham.
Don’t be. At 5-2, the Rams are showing an ability to be a good bet on the road and not so bad at home. With nine games remaining, the current trend looks to bode well for this team.
Immediately after the break, Los Angeles will make trips to New York (Jersey actually), and Minnesota, before making FIVE roadies in December to Arizona, Seattle, and Tennessee.
Don’t expect the Rams to go unbeaten on the road as they did before the bye week. But based on the trend they’ve established in these first seven games, you can certainly feel good about the chances they have in three of those games. If you had to find two games they could struggle in, circle Minnesota and then Seattle in the middle of December.
As brutal as the travel schedule has been for Los Angeles, the bigger test might be what they do when they are at home.
In these last nine games, who’d of thought playing in the Coliseum would be a bigger crap shoot than going out on the road?
