3. Rams receiving corps

Los Angeles knew they would be at a disadvantage heading into last weekend’s game against Chicago with Brandin Cooks missing a second game in a row, but Robert Woods being ruled out leading up to the contest came as a huge surprise.

All of a sudden, the Rams were forced to rely on Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds as their top two receivers when facing the Bears.

And while both Kupp and Reynolds deserve plenty of credit for coming up big on numerous plays, it’s safe to say Los Angeles will need stronger outings from these two along with others when taking on Baltimore.

For years, the Ravens have established a reputation for always having one of the top defensive units in the league, and even though Cooks is expected to return for Monday’s game, no one really knows what to expect from the speedster.

Take this into consideration with the status surrounding Woods is still up in the air, Los Angeles appears to be heading towards another difficult challenge against Baltimore as far as their receiving corps is concerned.

Plus, now that Marcus Peters is officially a member of the Ravens’ defense, this gives the Rams another challenge to worry about since the cornerback is familiar with his former teammates.
