The Los Angeles Rams dispensed of one high profile likely Hall Of Famer in Aaron Rodgers and gets another when they play the New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees.
First things first, you can make an argument that the Rams will play two of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League this season with back-to-back games against both Rodgers and Brees. As per the schedule, another good argument is being made that LA plays four great quarterbacks in successive weeks.
Russell Wilson for the second time.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
That’s a gauntlet and the Rams will be challenged in the next three games more than the were in their first seven.
Additionally, Los Angeles is facing another team better than the first seven faced. As good as Rodgers is, the Packers are not. At 6-1, the Saints are the best team the Rams may face in 2018, with the unpredictable exception of the Chiefs.
The Rams pass rush and pass defense as a whole has been suspect. The addition of Dante Fowler is an unknown, so saying he’s a factor one way or the other is premature.
Brees has a big day.
A Hall Of Fame day, and the Rams get the biggest test of the season in Week 9.
