The Los Angeles Rams are 7-0 and flirting with the possibility of an undefeated season. The second half of 2018 will have LA facing some solid quarterback play beginning with Aaron Rodgers in Week 8.
The Los Angeles Rams will see a run of good teams and even better quarterbacks over the next seven games. In Week 8, LA will get an up close and personal look at Aaron Rodgers, likely the best QB they have seen so far this season.
But Rodgers is just the beginning. Should the Rams beat the Green Bay Packers, six more quarterbacks stand in the way of what many predict could be an undefeated season.
Week 9 has Los Angeles on the road to face Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are arguably the second best team in the NFC and play at the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Should LA and New Orleans both win this weekend, Week 9 could have these two teams in a possible preview of an NFC Championship game.
After the Saints, the Rams get the Seattle Seahawks in a Week 10 NFC West showdown that is always a good battle for LA. Quarterback Russell Wilson, once the best at his position in the division, will be looking for some payback after a good showing in a 33-31 loss in Week 5.
Week 11 could be one of the best games on the Monday Night Football schedule as the Rams host the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes in Mexico City. Mahomes has been on fire so far in his second season, and it could be a preview of a bigger game to come in the postseason. At the very least, it’ll feature the future of the NFL with two young QB’s in Mahomes and Jared Goff.
Los Angeles gets a needed bye after the Chiefs and is then back on the road for a Week 13 game at the Detroit Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford. Stafford, who is capable of monster numbers on any given Sunday, will face a Rams defense who has been inconsistent through seven weeks, but looks to be getting better after a huge performance from Aaron Donald in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Week 14 has the Rams back in the Midwest against the NFC North, but this time against the Chicago Bears and an improving Mitch Trubisky. It’s also the last time this season that Los Angeles travels beyond the Mountain Time Zone before heading back for a home game against the Philadelphia Eagles and quarterback Carson Wentz in Week 15.
The Los Angeles Rams close out 2018 on the road against the NFC West with a road game at the Arizona Cardinals with presumably Josh Rosen still at quarterback, and then at home against C.J. Beathard and the 49ers in the season finale at the Coliseum.
