I am not sure if I have ever seen a week when so many games were won by three points or less. With all of those close games, you just had to know that there would be upsets or near losses. I am very afraid to tally up for the week. Let’s talk about tonight’s game for a minute. So, this game was supposed to be played in Mexico. The field conditions were awful. The NFL moved the game to Los Angeles. Ok, no big deal, right? Except what about the fans? I believe they are getting reimbursed for tickets. They are not getting refunded for travel. Season ticketholders could claim their seats and four more before the general public was able to buy them last Wednesday. On top of that, complimentary tickets were made available to first responders and victims of the wildfires in California. Since both teams were training/practicing in Denver, Colorado, they asked to play the game there. The NFL rejected their request. So, off to L.A. they go. Whew! Now, I can get into the game.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS vs LOS ANGELES RAMS:
Both teams have a loss. One to the New England Patriots. The other to the New Orleans Saints. Quality losses, if you can call losses quality. Both teams have high octane offenses. Since that is a known fact, it will surely come to defense. The Kansas City defense is ranked 20th in the league. Not good when you are going up against an offense that almost mirrors yours in Los Angeles. The Rams often get out to a slow start. This will allow a shoot out for a majority of the game. The Rams defense, with Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, will put a stop to things later in the game with pressure on Patrick Mahomes that the Chiefs offensive line will not be able to handle. Football fans are looking forward to an explosive game. No better game for a Monday night under the lights.
Los Angeles Rams
My best guess has been given! Cannot wait to see how it turns out. What do you all think? Good luck to your teams and picks!
