Los Angeles Rams (7-3) at Green Bay Packers (8-3)

Sunday, November 28, 4:25PM ET

We all knew the additions of Von Miller and Odell Beckham Jr. weren’t suddenly going to turn the Los Angeles Rams into a super team, right? It takes time, even for stars, to shine bright in new situations. Maybe it’s time for this Rams team to unlock its potential?

The Green Bay Packers are already reeling after a surprise upset at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings. Sure, the Packers held their own and took it down to the final seconds before being handed a defeat. And yet, we got another reminder that this Green Bay squad isn’t perfect.

Then again, neither are the Rams. However, on paper at least, they’re the superior team. They’ve got one of the most talented defenses in the league, and an explosive passing game capable of lighting up the scoreboard. We’ve seen dominant performances from Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp and the rest of the Rams offense already this season.

Is more coming? We’ll see on Sunday, but it seems like it. The Green Bay defense isn’t as dominant as it appeared to be, especially after giving up 34 points to the Vikings. If the Rams have their way, they’ll be back on track and avoid extending their losing streak to three games.

Prediction: Rams win 37-32 | Spread: Packers (-1)
