The Los Angeles Rams travel to Minneapolis for a game against the Minnesota Vikings that is intriguing NOT because of a potential game against former Rams quarterback Case Keenum, but because LA is on the road again, and against a very good NFC North team.
Heading into the Rams bye week, both Minnesota and Los Angeles are 5-2, and looking like potential playoff teams.
The win in Dallas may have been one of those stand alone, watershed moments for an organization who’s been in the doldrums for better than a decade.
But the second half of the season has the Rams continuing in the role of road warriors as they play five games away from home.
As for the Vikings, they had a bizarre 2016 that has evolved into a 2017 where week to week provides a guessing game as to who may be under center. This season has seen both former Rams quarterbacks’ Sam Bradford and Keenum in that role.
Add that Minnesota hits the bye after this week and when they reconvene, Teddy Bridgewater may also be available.
Currently sitting at 5-2, also like LA, the Vikings look to be a leader in the NFC North.
Meaning Rams-Vikings may very well be a matchup of two division leading teams looking to stay on top.
