With the Los Angeles Rams on a bye week, the team hopes to receive some help from the Houston Texans, who face the Houston Texans, in Week 8.

At 5-2, nobody expected the Los Angeles Ram to be in this current position when it comes to being on top of the NFC West during their bye week, especially after only winning four games all of last season. But with the Seattle Seahawks hosting the Houston Texans in Week 8, the Rams will need a little help in order to stay in first place.

Back in Week 5, Los Angeles suffered a tough 16-10 loss at home to Seattle due to Jared Goff and the offense struggling to put up any points. And even though the two teams will meet again in the middle of December, the Seahawks currently hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Rams at the moment, which means they have an opportunity to move back into first place in the division with a win over the Texans on Sunday.

Obviously, there would be no reason for Los Angeles to hit the panic button if that does happen since they’re still in great shape at 5-2, but also the team wouldn’t mind seeing Seattle end up on the losing end against Houston. When seeing how tight this division race is turning out to be, the Rams will look for any help they can get moving forward, including the Texans on Sunday.

Then again, the Seahawks have a history of playing well in front of their own crowd since the fans make it one of the most hostile environments in the NFL, so the Texans will have quite the work cut out for them. Either way, no matter what ends up happening in Week 8 within the division, at least the Rams will still be considered one of the top teams in the NFC heading into next weekend’s game against the New York Giants.
