Los Angeles Rams. 6. team. 51. . . Previous: 10th

6. Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams were embarrassed in Week 1 by the Buffalo Bills and were taking it out on the Falcons for three quarters. They entered the final 15 minutes with a 31-10 lead but then the Dirty Birds started to put up some points.

They scored 17-points, with the final two coming by way of safety by Brandon Powell. While it’s good they got the win, there are still concerns — with Matthew Stafford being the biggest.

Last season, he was one of the reasons they won it all but he’s already thrown five interceptions in two games. He led the league in picks last season and needs to find a way to clean this up going forward. In addition to that, their defense allowed Atlanta to get back into it and needed an interception from Jalen Ramsey at the end to close things out.

49. . . Previous: 12th. Green Bay Packers. 5. team

5. Green Bay Packers

Last year, the Green Bay Packers lost ugly in Week 1, then went off the rest of the season. This year, they look to be following the same recipe.

A 23-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings feels like an eternity ago after the way they took it to the Bears on Monday Night Football. Aaron Rodgers was cerebral and Aaron Jones ran wild on the Bears defense.

They continue to be one of the best teams in the league and reading too much into Week 1 is apparently a mistake with them.
