New Orleans Saints 45 – LA Rams 35

It was inevitable. We said last week that the odds of going 16-0 were almost impossible. However, what a great game this was!

While New Orleans was dominant early, the Rams put on an amazing comeback in the second half, tying the game with 21 unanswered points.

While the final result wasn’t what Rams fans were hoping for, we can be reassured in knowing that no deficit is too big for this team to overcome. It’s just one game and the Rams still have the best record in football, sitting tied with the Chiefs at 8-1.

Rams stay undefeated, winning 29-27 over Packers

Rams 29 – Packers 27

I really had a hard time predicting this game! While I love the Packers, (some of you might know, I write for both the Green Bay Packers and the Los Angeles Rams) they have been inconsistent all season and not playing as well as we know they can. At the same time, the Rams are (so far) unbeatable and playing more as a consistent, total team week after week.

That’s not how the game Sunday began, however. The Packers defense was firing on all cylinders and playing better than they had in weeks, while the Rams were having a very slow, uncharacteristic start. By game end, Green Bay would fall to 3-3-1, and the Rams would keep their unblemished record.

Five games, Five wins for the LA Rams

LA Rams 33 – Seattle Seahawks 31

The Los Angeles Rams continued their winning streak with a tight 33-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

This was a close game – and one on the road that many teams would have lost. But not the Rams!

There is only one other team, the Kansas City Chiefs, who have yet to lose a game. If this trend continues, Week 11 could be the most exciting of the season.

Mistakes, missed field goals result in Packers 31-23 loss to Lions

Detroit Lions 31 – Green Bay Packers 23

The Green Bay Packers were plagued by a series of poor calls and poor plays again Sunday, as they fell to the Detroit Lions 31-23 Sunday.

The most glaring – kicker Mason Crosby missed four field goals and an extra point attempt before finally getting one through with just 2 seconds left in the game.

According to ESPN Stats & Information research, he became the first NFL kicker to miss four field goals and an extra point in the same game since Rolf Benirschke of the Chargers in 1980. At one point, Crosby even changed his cleats after missing his third field goal in the first half.

Los Angeles Rams claim victory in the “Battle of Los Angeles”

Los Angeles Rams 35 – Los Angeles Chargers 23

The Los Angeles Rams are on a roll! For the first time in more than a decade, the Rams are off to a 3-0 start.  They have been favored in every game thus far and covered the spread each time. Does this mean they will be able to beat the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night?

Rams quarterback Jared Goff seems to be getting more comfortable and improving every game. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, he went for three touchdowns, an interception and completed 29 of his 36 passes. He’s got an arm that allows him to throw over the middle of the field and doesn’t seem afraid to take chances with long balls.

Packers vs. Vikings- getting revenge

I hate to call this a revenge game. But….

This is a big game. And I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t scared to death to watch it. The Minnesota Vikings are a VERY good team. I actually think the Vikings are a better overall team, although the Packers have the better quarterback.

And no one is forgetting that they broke quarterback Aaron Rodgers last year.

Will they be subtly trying to injure him again? I hate to think that, but I just can’t help it. They know that they can stop the Packers from sweeping the division. To top it all off, Rodgers isn’t fully healthy.  Which the Packers absolutely need when facing a team of Minnesota’s caliber.

The Packers hold a 59-52-2 edge in this rivalry although the Vikings have won three of the last four meetings including a sweep of both games in 2017.

Los Angeles Rams begin season with a victory over the Oakland Raiders

Los Angeles Rams 33 – Oakland Raiders 13

 

The Los Angeles Rams came out of Week 1 with a win over the Oakland Raiders. Even though going into this matchup the Rams were the superior team, questions still remained as to how the team would gel after most of the starters were sidelined throughout the preseason.

This game was a bit of “A Tale of Two Halves.” The first half had the Rams looking a bit rusty, but adjustments were made at halftime. The Raiders were simply outplayed and outscored the entire time as the Rams garnered 23 unanswered points.

Aaron Rodgers leads thrilling comeback win over the Chicago Bears

Green Bay Packers 24 – Chicago Bears 23

 

I am definitely feeling the effects today from the lack of oxygen I experienced when I stopped breathing last night during the Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers game. When quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with a knee injury in the first half, the only words I could muster were, “You have to be joking.”

It looked like the Packers’ season was over just as it was beginning. There are injuries, and then there are “the cart is coming out” injuries. Only a handful of players have ever left the game on the injury cart to return. And none have launched a comeback like Rodgers did in Green Bay’s season opener.

Bears at Packers: what to watch

The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears meet for the 197th time Sunday night, more than any two teams in NFL history. I’m always surprised at how close these two teams are – the Packers lead this rivalry 96-94-6.

It’s going to be an incredibly exciting game, no matter which team you root for. (#GoPackGo) Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is finally back and healthy, and for Bears fans, having linebacker Khalil Mack on the team is the equivalent of Christmas in September.

Here is just a bit of what to watch Sunday night:

Green Bay Packers close out the preseason in Kansas City

It’s been quite the week for Packers fans! Green Bay traded back up quarterback Brett Hundley to Seattle on Wednesday, meaning DeShone Kizer will be the No. 2 quarterback this season. In the trade, the Packers received a sixth-round draft pick for 2019.

If you’ve been reading my articles the past few seasons, you know how happy this makes me! I have never had much confidence in Hundley. His lack of consistency has always frustrated me. Perhaps he can perform better for the Seahawks. 

Packers fans hoped he’d learn from QB Aaron Rodgers, but maybe he will work more effectively under QB Russell Wilson. They are a bit more similar in their game-play. Though Kizer went 0-15 last season as a starter in Cleveland, I’ve always wanted him to win the No. 2 QB job in Green Bay. I feel like once Kizer was added, the writing was on the wall for Hundley.

Did you find this trade surprising?
