  • Game Week 9 Rams @Steelers Prediction

    The Rams kick off the second half of their season against the streaking Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers started off 1-4, lost Ben but have won three straight. The Rams hold an edge in the match-up 15-9-2.

    This is an interesting match up for the Rams. I believe the outcome of this game will set the tone for the second half of the season. A road win here will be huge.

        Rams' Brandin Cooks: Ruled out, meeting specialists [again]

        CBS Sports / by RotoWire Staff
        Nov. 06, 2019

        Cooks (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Steelers, Lindsey Thiry of reports.

        Cooks is travelling to Pittsburgh to meet with medical specialists as he nurses the fifth diagnosed concussion of his NFL career. The 2014 first-round pick previously met with a specialist during Los Angeles' bye. The Rams hope Cooks will manage to clear the five-step concussion protocol without missing much time, but giving the tricky nature of head injuries, the possibility of a multi-week absence can't be ruled out. Josh Reynolds will serve as the team's No. 3 wide receiver as long as Cooks is unable to go.

          Mathematically, working with the assumption that the Rams need to get to 11-5 to get a wild card spot, one could say that this is not a "must win". And if you were to choose where 2 more losses would fall, the games against AFC teams, Steelers and Ravens, would seem likely to have the least impact on our playoff chances. But if we were to lose both AFC games, we'd have no margin to lose any of the 6 remaining games against NFC teams. 6-0 against SF, Seattle, AZ (2x), Chicago, Dallas is a real tall order. I wouldn't construct our playoff run scenario on that premise.

          From a perspective of confidence and momentum, this game is huge and we need to win it. Pittsburgh is a "winnable" game for us. We're coming off our bye. We've had time to rest, get healthier, review where we've been and what we need to do to improve, integrate Edwards on the O line and Ramsey in the D backfield, etc. Further, a number of our key NFC competitors will lose this week (presuming no ties). Carolina v. GB, Minn v. Dallas, SF v. Seattle. A real hit to our team psyche to lose this one.

          I like our chances with 2 weeks to prepare.

            Rams are road tough and Steelers are desperate. One team gets a nail in its coffin.

              The three game win streak by the Steelers though was to Chargers Colts & Dolphins. Against teams that have a stronger defense, the Steelers have simply not been able to stick it.

              I predict the Rams defense plays well enough to give the Rams offense enough opportunities to get them ahead by final whistle. Not a blow out, but a solid victory nonetheless. (Wouldn't be surprised if Steelers have a slight lead at the half even)

              good guys: 27
              bad guys: 16

                This is an interesting game for us at this time. As Seacone points out this is a huge game for us to continue our current winning streak. The last game we won v a team with a .500 or better record was week 2 and Saints fans will call it a tainted win due to Brees injury. But they said that after the NFC Championship game and it means nothing.

                Our last win v the Steelers was 2003 when we still had remnants of GSOT on the roster. Law of averages should take hold. Our last game v the Steelers was 2015 and Big Ben went down yet we still lost. Those were the Jeff Fisher years so anything was possible.

                I'm predicting a tough game with an ugly win for us 19-17. Pitt plays good defense and Jared Goff needs to step up and post a solid passing game with some effective running plays to keep the defense honest as well. While I know we'll miss Brandin Cooks, we may actually benefit from Josh Reynolds starting as we need more quick short/intermediate passes than long downfield throws.

                My other theory about this game is that we usually lose a game we shouldn't lose and win one that we don't expect to win. When the schedule came out I didn't have lot of confidence over this game, but we need to compensate for the Tampa Bay game that I was sure we'd win.

                We'll get to see our old buddy Mark Barron, who may anticipate Goff's passes. Although I hope not.

                Its an interesting week to be a Rams fan.

                    The Los Angeles Rams (5-3), after a Week 9 bye, are well rested and look to return a pair of key players in Week 10, when they head east to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers (4-4).

                    Starting outside linebacker Clay Matthews, who suffered a jaw injury in Week 5, was a full participant in Thursday’s practice session, and should be good to go this weekend barring a setback. Backup running back Malcolm Brown, who missed the London game vs. the Bengals with an ankle injury, was also back on the field today.

                    It’s good news for a Rams team that could use all of its talent headed down the back stretch of the 2019 season. Here’s a look at their injury report from Thursday:

                    If you’re late to the party, Rams’ head coach Sean McVay announced on Wednesday that WR Brandin Cooks has yet to pass concussion protocol and will therefore be out this Sunday. LB Bryce Hager was placed on IR earlier today. Outside of that, the Rams are looking pretty good.

                          What happened to the big bubble helmet the NFL developed for Beebee and TB12 for concussions? Was it not better than the headgear that Cooks has had his bell rung 5 times in? I sure would like to see that helmet on Cooks when he returns.

                            Unfortunately I was correct in my prediction.

                              Steelers (record wise) are the best team next to the Rams.

                              Are the Steelers as good as their record? I have watched them play serveral times and I am not impressed. Am I wrong on this? Are they a threat to our trophy??

                              Looks like I could be going to the home game against the Steelers. Anyone else going?

                              Steelers learn nothing from Ram's Loss
                              by BigGameMN
                              So did anybody else see the end to the Steelers, Falcons game? The Steelers were lining up to spike the ball and attempt a FG just like Seattle was last week. But the WR Washington didn't know if he was lined up right and moved up right before the snap. False Start, 10 second Run Off, Overtime.

                              Had he saw the STL game last week, he would have known it wouldn't have mattered if an Illegal Formation was called, because it would have been just a 5 yard penalty and they still could have kicked. I would have thought Cower might have gone over something like that with his team but I guess not.

                              Yes I am glutton for punishment. In my weekly pool I picked Rams over Steelers. But I usually pick with my heart over head when it comes to Rams each week !!! I do think the Rams will represent themselves much better this week. I say Rams 24 Steelers 16.....Hope is a good thing What do you think?
