Week 8 presents an incredible opportunity for the Rams to remain perfect on the season and run their 2018 record to 8-0 before moving on to a tougher part of their schedule.
It may not be easy.
Against a team with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback a win is no mortal lock, but then again the Packers haven’t played a team like the Rams. The two best that Green Bay has faced this year was in Week 2, a 29-29 tie in overtime against Minnesota and in Week 3, a 31-17 loss to the Washington Redskins. Keep in mind that the two common opponents both teams have faced is the above mentioned Vikings and the 49ers and the Rams best both of those teams.
Does that guarantee a win for either Los Angeles or Green Bay?
At 3-2-1, the Pack is something of a riddle.
At 7-0, the Rams are not.
LA is the best team in the National Football League and unless you are a fan of either the New Orleans Saints or the Kansas City Chiefs, you won’t get much of an argument, though the Rams can solve that question in November.
However this is Week 8, and with Aaron Rodgers anything can happen.
What 3-2-1 does indicate is that the Packers even with Rodgers are inconsistent at best. Maybe they are better after their bye week, maybe they are not.
Two thing we do know, is 3-2-1 presents a lot of unanswered questions.
7-0 does not.
Los Angeles Rams-42
Green Bay Packers-33
