  • Week 13 Rams @ Bears Predictions

    This week the 11-1, NFC West Champs, LA Rams take on the 8-4 Chicago Bears. The Bears lead this long running series 53-36-3

    Key match-up.......The Bears sport a rather stingy 4th ranked defense. The Rams are ranked number 2 in offense. The weather should be clear and in the 20's. Can our boys do it this week?

    Rams 24
    Bears 20

    What say you?

    Game is important for the Rams to maintain hold on playoff home field, but are already assured of a playoff berth and divisional title. Game even more important for the Bears, who have wrapped up nothing and need to hold onto the division. I think the key is whether or not Mitchell Trubisky plays, as there is an obvious dropoff between him and Daniel. I'm gonna hedge my bet:

    If Trubisky plays, Bears pull the home upset 27-24 on a last minute field goal.
    If Daniel plays, Rams win the hard-fought contest 27-20

      This is the game I have the Rams down for a loss BUT considering everything they have to play for, I am changing to push

      Keeping the Rams Nation Talking

        I think the Rams will go with a ground game and lean on the defense... its a better defense the Rams face and the weather doesn't look like it will favor a passing game for the Rams

          The remorseless NFL TV Schedulers did the Rams no favors by flexing this game into the evening slot. The absence of the Sun will be a factor, and it will be cold. That may exhilarate some of the linemen and bangers on the team, but definitely adds to the challenge for the offensive skill guys. (I.e., Goff grew up in Marin County, played college ball at Berkeley, and now plays in L.A. I doubt he owns a heavy sweater.) And, letís face it, offensive skill guys and scoring is what this team has been about. So, I respect the objectiveness of those picking the Bears in this one, and I see why. But, at this point of the season, regardless the weather, the Rams must show up like the big dog in the NFC, if thatís what they are. Thatís the big intangible in this game. I believe McVay and his team believe they are the big dog, and understand this is a night it must be demonstrated. So, I believe them too, until proven wrong. I say our defense and ground game grinds it out in the cold Chicago night.

            This game does appear to be potential throwback of sorts. No dome, game will be in the 20 ish degree, the bears have strong defense and an offense that is not as worthy as their defense, The Rams are built on speed and aggressiveness on the offensive side of the ball. The d for the Rams had a good showing last week but is usually overshadowed by the offense. Last week's game I think will be closer to how this game goes then other contests for the Rams. Whereby the d takes more control and offense does just enough. Trubisky likes to scramble, historically not a strong match-up for Rams D. Chicago, from what I am reading is all pumped about playing the Rams and delivering a message. This is why they play the game

              I along with Dez had this game as a loss for the Rams as we are on the road and all the other environmental stuff. BUT, given the ability to salt away a week 1 bye and having the ad over NO to play at home the whole way I think this game has a different agenda. The Bears defense is pretty stout up front however their back end with the exception of Eddie Jackson isn't as strong. Hopefully Jared will return to form this week. The Lions game was a good warm-up IMO. With Talib back and our defense no slouch, I'm picking the Rams 28-19. Trubisky or not.

              I am not as concerned about the cold as I'm sure the coaching staff has the team getting acclimated. These are tough people who can overcome a cold night. Let's not make this out to be Green Bay. As long as its not snowing or raining we should be fine.

              Go Rams!

                As an East Coast fan, I hate these Sunday night games. I see a grind it out win, maybe something like 24-17.
