Packers vs Rams Odds – CJ’s Take
Last week’s game against San Francisco was a little like a walk in the park for the Rams (39-10), as they held San Francisco to just 228 yards. Jared Goff didn’t have to do a whole lot, and indeed he didn’t (just 202 passing yards), but we should take note that Todd Gurley had over 200 yards on the ground the week before against Denver, as the Rams pounded their way to a tough 23-20 victory. That game, coupled with their victory at Seattle the week before, are clear indications that this is not necessarily a team that is going to run and hide from every opponent.
The Packers had much more of a struggle with the Niners, and at Lambeau Field no less, as Rodgers rallied them to a 33-30 victory last time out. Now they have had the benefit of a bye week for extra preparation. Rodgers, as everyone probably knows, has been struggling with a bad knee, but has performed heroics nonetheless. He’s been sacked 19 times, but has twelve touchdown passes and only one interception in 254 attempts. So he’s playing some very solid football.
One of the big challenges for the Packers here is dealing with the Los Angeles running game, because we are well aware of what Gurley is capable of. Averaging 4.8 yards per carry, and then sneaking out of the backfield to catch passes as well, he is someone that the Green Bay linebacking corps has to keep an eye on. The Packers have allowed their opponents to rush for 4.5 yards per attempt. The Rams have actually allowed more (4.7), but Green Bay doesn’t really have the personnel to exploit that to its fullest.
What Rodgers is going to have to hope for is that he can get things rolling against the Rams’ secondary, which has given up yardage generously to the better quarterbacks on the schedule (Philip Rivers, Kurt Cousins, Russell Wilson). Remember that Aqib Talib, the All-Pro cornerback, is out, and Marcus Peters has not been going at full speed necessarily, as he has a calf injury. So there is at least something that can be exploited there.
And the question becomes whether you really want to leave this big a “back door” open in the number for Rodgers, who has brought back his team so many times. It should be noted that the Packers have gotten this many points only twice in the last 11 seasons, and that Rodgers has never been this big an underdog in his NFL career as a starter. We would think grabbing the points could be a judicious idea.
