The Los Angeles Rams are one of the hottest teams in the NFL and all of a sudden look like dark horse Super Bowl contenders.
They'll likely need to win one of their final two games to officially secure a spot in the NFL Playoffs and they're in a great spot to do exactly that in Week 17 when they hit the road as big favorites against the New York Giants.

Rams vs. Giants key players to watch
Los Angeles Rams
Kyren Williams: This Rams team looks completely different when Kyren Williams is healthy. He's averaging a blistering 5.1 yards per carry this season and adds a new dynamic to this Rams offense. He will play a key role for the Rams the rest of the season.
New York Giants
Tyrod Taylor: After almost leading the Giants to s second half comeback victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, the Giants have announced they will be rolling with Tyrod Taylor in Week 17, which means Tommy DeVito is returning to a backup role. He has completed 61.7% of passes for 725 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception this season.
Rams vs. Giants prediction and pick
Don't be fooled by the Giants play of late, especially their Week 16 performance where they almost managed to upset the Philadelphia Eagles. This team has a lot of issues, especially on offense. They still rank 31st in the NFL in both EPA per play and offensive success rate while ranking dead last in the league in Net yards per Play.
Meanwhile, the Rams are one of the hottest teams in the NFL in the second half of the season. Not only are they looking like a playoff team, but they're looking like a dark horse Super Bowl contender. Let's not forget their only loss over the past handful of weeks was an overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens, who just might be the best team in the NFL.
If the Rams are as good as I think they are and the Giants are as bad as I think they are, this could be a blowout in favor of Los Angeles.
