Monday Morning edition going previewing Sunday Night Football for Week 11 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Los Angeles Rams.
What an important game for the NFL, this game this tonight.
I mean, my goodness, right now we're looking at in the division you got, Tampa Bay cannot afford.
Neither of these teams can afford a loss.
They're both sitting there in the wild card spot, one game behind the current, uh, division leaders, the Rams sitting at six and three.
They need to win to stay pace with.
The Seattle Seahawks were sitting at 73 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sitting at 73 They need to win to stay pace with the New Orleans Saints, who are sitting at eight and two.
Ah, loss could mean ah lot when it comes to the playoff picture in this game.
Now the question is, how do you go about checking out this game? Well, look at it this way.
The Rams right now look awfully good when it comes to their health.
Offensively, everyone seems to be doing well with the Rams.
Darryl Henderson, Their offense, the only guy they have right now besides Andrew Whitworth, who is on IR is Brian Allen, who is doubtful.
The rest of the team on offense is playing defensively.
They still have Ramsey.
They still have Jordan, Fuller, Leonard Floyd, Aaron, Donald, Michael brokers, all these guys playing in this game.
But for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, I mean again, they look pretty good as well.
Ron Jones is playing for net.
Tom Brady is back to his good self.
You got Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski and Cameron.
Break is playing in this game as well.
And defensively they look very good.
Obviously, Vita is on IR, but the rest of the defense again there.
Here's the thing Offensively, you're looking at an offense of the Rams, who were fifth in the NFL going up against the Tampa Bay defense, which is third in the NFL in total yards.
But when you're looking at offense 10 today's middle of the pack, middle of the pack, they that they only get 103 yards rushing.
Even with all these Russian guys, these high powered guys, uh, that runs the football.
They're only getting 103.
9 yards a game now passing about 2 64.
That's around league average.
But defensively, the Rams right now give up less than 300 yards total of game.
I mean, my goodness, they give up less than 200 yards through the air and less than 100 yards on the ground.
This is going to be, Ah, blast to watch.
I mean, a blast to watch I.
Personally, I I don't know who's gonna win this game right off the top of my head.
I know who I'm leaning, but the question is, can Tampa Bay protect Brady with this defensive line of the Los Angeles Rams? If they can, then Tom Brady could be able to go out there and pass the football decently.
That could make the game a little bit tougher.
Jared Goff and this offense to try to keep pace.
This game hinges on the Los Angeles Rams defense completely all the way across, and this Rams defense has played well this season.
As I've already mentioned with all the weapons that Tampa Bay have over there on the offense, them being where they're at on the offensive side of the field is really shocking, very very shocking middle of the pack.
It all has to do with this offensive line.
If the offensive line could step up somehow and shut down Aaron, Donald and this defense, I have them giving a chance.
Otherwise, I think the Rams might win this game.
And if that happens, that's gonna spell doom, as I mentioned earlier for the Tampa Bay because they cannot afford to drop the seven and four on the season.
Not when you have the Arizona Cardinals right now at six and four and a Zai mentioned that the Rams win.
There'll be seven and three.
I mean, this is not a good look.
San Francisco still fighting it out as well.
You don't want to see the Cardinals and the Rams now, granted, the only thing that's saving them is that the NFC East is awful.
The difference the most wins in the NFC East right now is three.
And the funny thing is, all four teams have three wins in the NFC East, and that's what's keeping Tampa Bay from from being knocked out.
Same with Los Angeles Rams and the Arizona Cardinals.
They have pretty good footholds, but you cannot afford to lose a game at this situation.
This is gonna be a fun game to watch.
I want to thank you guys for watching SportsCastr news Monday Night Football preview Rams vs Tampa Bay and until next time, as usual, have a good one.
