Will injuries play a major role?

The LA Rams were a bit banged up from the Seattle Seahawks game, and will still be suffering from the hangover from last week’s game in this one. The Rams have ruled out OLB Terrell Lewis (knee), QB John Wolford (neck) for this one. WR Cooper Kupp (knee) and OG David Edwards (ankle) did not practice this week and are listed as questionable.

Fortunately for the Rams, OLB Leonard Floyd and RB Cam Akers were not listed on the injury report, and are expected to play with no restrictions. DL Aaron Donald had only limited practice on Thursday but is a go for the game. Not listed is left tackle Andrew Whitworth, who is playing in just his second game after returning from a knee injury. Also not listed is starting quarterback Jared Goff, whose thumb is still recuperating from thumb surgery just two weeks ago.

How do I enjoy football this year with no stadium?

With another week of NFL Football, don’t be satisfied with just pizza delivery and watching the game from the comfort of your living room sofa. And no to reheating leftovers, or a cold cut sandwich. Chill some beer and wine. Brown some taco meat and set up a taco bar to keep you nourished throughout the game.
