Hey, can you classify the Giants as a trap game?

If the Rams watched Deshaun Watson against NFC West foe Seattle in Week 8, they saw their next opponent coming up, when they eventually play a home game after their trip to New York.

Will Los Angeles take a 1-6 disaster in the Giants as a ‘W’ they just need show up for?

Not likely.

If you saw Rams head coach Sean McVay on the FOX NFL Sunday shows, I would have a hard time thinking LA will be looking ahead to a game featuring two of the best young quarterbacks in the league.

The upside is that Los Angeles is road tested. They’ve beaten two quality teams in media favorite Dallas, and a good defense in Jacksonville.

They also survived a shootout in San Francisco against a game 49ers team.

The Rams have a lot of balance in all facets of their game. Between special teams, a defense that is trending way up, and an offense that has been steady and in every game, LA on the road is becoming a safe bet.

Home might be a different deal.
