For Los Angeles Rams fans, Week 10 brings their team home to a Coliseum that one hopes has more than close friends and family in attendance. Without question, the best football, college or pro, is being played by the Rams.

The Houston Texans may be, and I say this seriously, the last best tuneup for Los Angeles before things get very real for a team many are saying is a contender, albeit an outside one, in the NFC. In November, Week 10 offers one of those “should win” games before they go back on the road to Minnesota and host New Orleans to wrap up the month.

Does a loss against the Texans derail all the good feelings and playoff potential for the Rams?

But it would make things more difficult, and in the NFL, whatever you’re doing that is making it work, you want to keep doing.

Beating Houston falls into that category.

The Rams have maybe two MVP candidates in Todd Gurley and Jared Goff, and the likely Coach Of The Year In Sean McVay. With a Top 5 defense and the best special teams in the league, you win games like this, you don’t let anyone off the hook.

You beat Houston.

Rams 34
Texans 13
