Packers-Rams: Three keys

  • Print

St Louis Secondary The Rams overhauled their secondary in the offseason and it has paid off already.  The St. Louis pass defense is fifth in the league in yards per game and they've ripped off eight interceptions.  Sure Aaron Rodgers had his way with a tough Houston secondary last week but he may not be able to put up the same numbers.  Of course the real question is can the Packers start stacking up good performances every week.  This matchup provides a challenge.

Two Headed Backfield Steven Jackson has been a mainstay of the Rams offense forever but now he is joined by Daryl Richardson.  The two runners are different in style and that helped the Rams put up decent ground gains against a tough Miami run defense last week.  The Packers shut down Houston last week without B.J. Raji but again the question is, can they do it every week?

Super Depth The Packers come into today missing four key defensive players so they will have to lean on guys like Erik Walden, Brad Jones and Davon House.  Do the Packers have the necessary depth to overcome injuries like they did in 2010?  We'll find out today.   While the Rams can move the ball they've struggled to reach the end zone consistently.

Prediction Packers 31, Rams 16
