Four weeks remain in the 2018 NFL season and the Los Angeles Rams are leading the NFC West with a 8-4 record. However, they are followed closely by the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams have a few tough opponents left, including two divisional rivals. Without any more hesitation, here is the final part of my Rams 2018 season predictions!
Week 14: @ Chicago Bears
The Bears are a much-improved team, and some think the Bears will excel in an uncertain division… I don’t see that happening. I see the Bears breaking even with a 8-8 record by the end of the season if they’re lucky. Let’s face it Bears fans, Tribusky can’t lead the team to the playoffs. On the other hand, if they get a few lucky games, their defense might. Luckily for Rams fans, the Ram defense should pick Tribusky apart. The Ram secondary should total around three interceptions and the front seven should rack up four sacks against a pretty sorry Chicago offensive line.
2017 Coach of the Year (and youngest head coach in NFL History) Sean McVay had an absolutely brilliant offense during the 2017 season. That offense will show to have gotten better by having third year QB Jared Goff throw for over 250 yards and two touchdowns to wide receivers Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks, all while running back Todd Gurley rushes for nearly 150 yards. My final score prediction is the Rams coming out on top by a score of 24-9 with the game MVP being the Rams defense as the Rams move to a 9-4 record.
Week 15: vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The last three games of the 2018 season are upon us, and the Rams lead the NFC west with a 9-4 record, now hosting the defending Super Bowl champions. No question this will by far be the toughest game of the season for the Rams. Sadly it won’t be the toughest, shoot out wise. This is because, for the first time this season, the Rams have no chance at winning. Discouragingly, the Eagles are too good. With Carson Wentz at the helm, Alshon Jeffery at receiver, and an incredibly stacked defense, the Rams stat line will most likely be 175 offensive yards, two sacks and 250 yards allowed to the Eagles. Nonetheless, my final score prediction is Eagles pick apart he Rams as they win 28-13. L.A. now heads into week 16 with a 9-5 record tied for the division lead.
Week 16: @ Arizona Cardinals
After the worst loss the Rams have had since the Jeff Fisher days, the Rams come firing on all cylinders against a struggling Cardinals team. Young quarterback and running back duo Jared Goff and Todd Gurley will have the game of their careers as they combine for about 350 yards on the ground and in the air. Meanwhile, the Ram defense forces rookie quarterback Josh Rosen to struggle, only being able to throw for about 125 yards and two interceptions to the Rams elite secondary. My final score prediction for this bounce back game is Rams beat the Cardinals 26-13 after defensive monster Aaron Donald gets a safety on Rosen, making him the Game MVP.
Week 17: vs. San Francisco 49ers
Week 17, win the division or go home… actually, I think the Rams are in the playoffs no matter what at this point. So, this is for the division. Okay, I’ll stop rambling. Last time these two teams met I predicted the Rams squeaked by winning 17-14 over the 49ers. This time, the game is a much more offensive battle as there are seven touchdowns combined by both teams. Both quarterbacks, Jared Goff and Jimmy G, will pass for a combined 475 yards and five touchdowns. My final score prediction is Rams come out on top with a final score of 28-24. The game MVP is head coach Sean McVay as he leads his team to the NFC West division title and back-to-back playoff appearances.
Well, the Los Angeles Rams end the season with an 11-5 record and it looks like this four-part series has come to an end.
