The St. Louis Rams were an under the radar surprise last season as they were very competitive in the best division in football and are looking to take a step forward with a revamped offense and a new quarterback.
Preview: The Rams offense is going to have a different signal caller as St. Louis sent Sam Bradford to the Philadelphia Eagles in a trade that netted them Nick Foles which honestly looks like a steal for the Rams as Bradford is coming off yet another major knee injury and Foles has a history of being at least near a top tier QB in the league. As Foles gets some experience in this new system and gets a feel for his new teammates and this new environment I think he can really help this team that is not all that far away from being really good. The Rams are going to be missing Todd Gurley as they wait for him to get healthy and will have to lean on second year player Tre Mason who had a decent but not great season last year.
The St. Louis defense is definitely the biggest strength of this team as their defensive line has been one of the better D-Lines in the game with Robert Quinn and Chris Long on the ends causing havoc in the backfield and disrupting bot the passing game and running game. At Linebacker the Rams are also very strong with young smart players who have had time to get their feet wet in the league and should really come into their own this season. The Rams secondary is also very good and if Janoris Jenkins can cut down on some of his reckless mistakes he has the talent to be one of the best CBs in the league.
Projected Record: 10-6
