The Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings play a critical game in the NFC on Sunday. The Week 11 matchup is also the best game on the NFL schedule this weekend.

Is this the week the Los Angeles Rams run out of luck on the road? Since going to Jacksonville, LA has had a steady diet of beatable opponents on the road and at home. With the exception of Seattle and the Jags, this team hasn’t had to line up against a potential playoff team, much less one as a trendy pick for a Super Bowl team.

That changes this Sunday.

Week 11 has the Rams mixing it up with a good and very interesting Minnesota Vikings team, and subplots are aplenty.

You have former Rams quarterback Case Keenum against the guy who was drafted to replace him in Jared Goff.

Both teams are on winning streaks, leading their division, and are 7-2.

AND, as the league has made the turn from the midway point of the season, they have become picks not just for the playoffs, but possible Super Bowl contenders.

All that said, leading up to Sunday  a lot of talk will swirl around the Prime Time game between the top team in the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles and media favorite Dallas Cowboys.

It’s not even close.

Best game in Week 11 is Rams / Vikings.

The winner immediately moves into the discussion of NFC favorite, while the loser will remain an interesting story still in the playoff mix.
