With both teams having a week off, plan on adjustments having been made as they head into what is the second part of their season, with nine games to go.
The Rams are 5-2 and New York is 1-6. You have the veteran Eli Manning, who looks to be on the other side of his career, versus the up and coming Jared Goff, who looks to have shed the bust label under head coach Sean McVay.
For Los Angeles, the Giants will be a good test. The Rams open up, again on the road and on the East Coast, a second half schedule that is brutal by every definition.
In November alone, they get a two-time Super Bowl quarterback in Manning, budding superstar Deshaun Watson at the Coliseum in Week 10, NFC North leader Minnesota on the road (I know right?), and then Drew Brees, who is a lock for the Hall Of Fame, and who also owns a Super Bowl ring.
No rest for the weary in LA.
The Rams can’t take the Giants lightly.
Especially with the playoffs and a division title still an option in 2017.
