The St. Louis Rams have looked ugly in the last couple of games, but now they will get to face off against the worst team in the league., the Jacksonville Jaguars. That could be the cure for their sickness. The Rams have lost 3 games in a row and will be looking to avoid a 4-game slide.
The Jaguars just traded away their starting left tackle and are hoping to show some sort of life against the Rams.

Jaguars Player to Watch: Maurice Jones-Drew
Maurice Jones-Drew has been subject of trade talks lately, but the Jaguars GM claims that he is not going anywhere. Jones-Drew has not had a strong season to this point. He is only averaging 2.4 yards per attempt and he only had 23 yards on 13 carries. He has only ran for 133 yards and 3 touchdowns this season.
Rams Player to Watch: Tavon Austin
Maybe the Rams have figured out a way to get Tavon Austin the football in the open field. Maybe. He hasn’t been used properly in the Rams offense and has been looking more and more like a bust for the team.
Matchup to Watch: Cortland Finnegan vs Cecil Shorts
Finnegan will be matched up with the Jaguars best receiver, Cecil Shorts, and will be looking to shut him down. The Jaguars have to throw the ball out to someone and Shorts is the best option. There could be plenty of opportunities for Finnegan to make a play on the football.
The Jaguars are the perfect cure for the Rams sickness. Both teams are struggling at the start of the season and this could be one ugly football game.
Jaguars 13, Rams 17
