1. Los Angeles Rams

Anything short of the playoffs would make this season a complete failure for the Los Angeles Rams, and if the regular season were to end today, the defending NFC champions would be watching from home.

Clearly, the Rams knew this season would be filled with plenty of challenges by playing with an extra target on their backs, but no one expected things to be this bad in the middle of November.

Feeling confident in their offensive line being able to get by after making a few key changes has backfired in a big way for Los Angeles, and watching Jared Goff failing to receive the necessary protection in the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers is the perfect example of this disaster.

Returning home for a meeting with the Chicago Bears would seem like the perfect opportunity for the Rams to bounce back with a win, but also keep in mind this defense led by Khalil Mack could end up having a field day on Los Angeles.

If the Rams struggled the way they did with the offensive line against the Steelers, just imagine the kind of pressure Goff is going to be feeling with the aggressiveness of the Bears’ defense on Sunday night.
