Week 15: At Green Bay Packers-Monday, December 19

The frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers, can be a harsh and unforgiving destination in December. Teams coming from warm weather cities can struggle with elements they seldom see at home. And thanks to the scheduling savants, the LA Rams will travel to those wonderfully challenging elements for their third game in the past three years.

The LA Rams won’t be an exception. Many good to great teams have faced the Packers when the calendar turns to winter, and those same good-to-great teams have left Lambeau Field with a loss. The LA Rams will have to be good enough to get a victory with whatever Mother Nature throws their way.

To add to the drama, this is a Monday Night game. The Rams and Packers will be in the prime time slot being the only teams playing that night, with all the NFL eyes upon them. It’s a tall order, and the Rams will have to bring their A-Game.

Cold night under the stars

One saving grace this year is the fact that LA Rams QB Matthew Stafford has a long-running history of competing against the Packers at Lambeau when he played for the Detroit Lions. While the Southern California climate has no doubt lowered his resistance to cold, he will still be quite familiar with the stadium, the fans, and the oh-so-bitter cold.

Both Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers are likely to be in the midst of chasing a spot in the playoffs and hopefully not far off from launching a Super Bowl run. Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur will get an opportunity to go head-to-head with the best coach in the NFL, LA Rams head coach Sean McVay.

A win could solidify La Fleur as the next big thing. A loss and critics will say he just isn’t ready for that next big step to match up against a championship team like the Rams.
