1. Rams currently third place in NFC West
Los Angeles knew the NFC West would be competitive in 2019 with all of the high expectations surrounding the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, but no one expected the Rams to currently be sitting in third place at this point.
While the Seahawks have always been a top contender in the NFC since Russell Wilson entered the league, the 49ers have taken a major leap in the right direction as the lone undefeated team entering Week 10.
Football fans remember well last year the high expectations surrounding San Francisco before Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL, and watching them become a strong Super Bowl contender has been incredible to witness, but also bad news for the Rams.
Since Los Angeles currently trails San Francisco by three games at the moment, chances are the only way the Rams are going to earn a trip to the playoffs is by earning one of the Wild Card spots.
With the Seahawks currently hanging on to the No. 5 seed, this shows just how competitive things are in the NFC West, and the challenge Los Angeles faces moving forward.
Long shot or not, the Rams are still going to fight for the division title until anything becomes official, and a win over the Steelers could help in a big way as well since the Seahawks take on the 49ers on Monday, which cold make the division race a little more interesting.
