The NFL Playoffs are about to begin. With the Packers being the clear favorite at the moment, everyone is trying to find their dark horse team to win the Super Bowl. While it may sound borderline crazy to argue against Aaron Rodgers at the moment, I’m going to go out on a limb and say the LA Rams could pull off an upset. Definitely not saying it will happen, I’m saying it could maybe happen if everything goes right for LA.
So You’re Saying There’s a Chance
I love the Rams going into this postseason. Even though it’s Green Bay’s Super Bowl to lose, they’ve constructed the most “win-now” roster in the league. They have some sneaky momentum going too, winning 5 of their last 6 games. This is the only NFC team who I can see rolling into Lambeau and giving the Packers a game match-up wise. The Bucs’ secondary would get torched by Rodgers, the Cowboys are overrated as usual, and the Cards won’t make it out of the first round (because of my Rams).
The Recipe for a Rams Super Bowl Run
Ramsey is the only guy who can somewhat contain Davante. In their last match-up, Ramsey held Davante to 5 catches for 41 yards as the nearest defender. I’m not saying Ramsey will put the clamps on Tae- that’s impossible. Ramsey’s one of the few guys who is athletic and smart enough to give him a battle. If Ramsey can bother Tae and hold him to a below average night, the Rams have a chance. Stafford has to show up though. This is why the Rams went out and got him. He’s been too up and down to know how exactly he’ll perform on any given day. But when he and Kupp are rolling, it’s the perfect answer to keeping up with Rodgers and Tae. Stafford can go throw for throw with anyone in the league when he’s on.
Akers is an Actual Freak of Nature
Also, Cam Akers is back? Does anyone else realize how absurd that is? Dude ruptured his Achilles in training camp and is back playing NFL football 5 months later. I always thought doing your Achilles was way worse than your ACL. Either Aker’s is a God-like specimen, or I’m just an idiot. Both could also be true.
In all seriousness, with the Rams’ defense, fresh legs in the backfield, and ceiling of the Stafford-Kupp connection, they could pull something outta their ass. I also think there’s a weird destiny vibe with the Super Bowl being played in their stadium. Now that I just typed all that, Kyler is probably gonna go for 5 tuddy’s and beat the Rams by 20.
