Here are four reasons why the Los Angeles Rams will suffer their first loss of the 2018 season in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.
With an 8-0 record after two months in the books, the Los Angeles Rams hope to see that magic continue this weekend when taking on the New Orleans Saints, who coincidentally happen to be one of the hottest teams in the NFL as well. Call it luck, call it whatever, but what the Rams were able to accomplish last weekend against the Green Bay Packers shows they can compete with some of the best playoff contenders in the league, and whether the team can accomplish the same against the Saints, well only time will tell.
With all due respect to Green Bay, New Orleans is a much bette team at the moment, and their level of play from recent weeks will back that statement up, as Sean Payton has watched his team make a strong case over being a top team to beat in the NFC. Better yet, if the Saints can figure out a way to hand the Rams their first loss, there may be a case to make over them becoming the new team to beat in the NFC, although that will be easier said than done since Sean McVay‘s team won’t go down without a fight.
Los Angeles may not want to hear it, but this is the kind of game that has trap written all over it, and unlike last Sunday when they got off to a poor start against Green Bay, they can’t afford to have this happen again in New Orleans. So as painful as it is to even think about since fans would love to see the team go undefeated if possible, here are four reasons why the Rams will suffer their first loss of 2018 on Sunday when taking on the Saints.
