Finally, the Los Angeles Rams will play a home game against the Houston Texans, in what seems like forever for LA fans.

The Los Angeles Rams come home for a Week 10 matchup against the Houston Texans. At 6-2, LA is now a favorite AND a contender in the NFC.

Who knew?

Next: 3 storylines for Rams against Texans in Week 10

First, discount the bandwagon jumpers and those who profess “to know” Rams quarterback Jared Goff always had it in him.

No one knew Goff had it in him, me included.

But putting that aside, and after an eight game stretch that has had Los Angeles playing most everywhere EXCEPT Los Angeles, the Rams are back in the Coliseum, and a place that has offered up only one win, against Indianapolis, and two losses, in Week 2 versus the Washington Redskins, and In Week 5 when they lost to division rival Seattle. Yes, they had that home game in London, but that is a different story.

So, is LA more than just a trendy pick that will surprise no one if they lose this game?

They are definetely more than a trendy pick.

The Rams are Top 5 in defense and in the Top 10 of the league on offense. If the shine was coming off this team, we’d of seen some of that by now, but we haven’t.

Los Angeles has managed to find their way into that rarefied air of a team who continues to grow into the better version of themselves weekly. Goff hasn’t dipped in performance, Todd Gurley hasn’t seen his production drop off, and injury of a significant magnitude has skipped them.

At least so far.

So, in Week 10 against a Houston Texans team missing perhaps the league’s brightest rookie star of 2017, the Rams should win.

Ah, if only this game were on the road.
