Week 8: St. Louis Rams @ Kansas City Chiefs

This game is A LOT harder than it looks, as the Rams have one of the scariest young rosters in the NFL right now. This team is loaded, especially within their front seven.

With the emergence of defensive end, Robert Quinn, they now have one of the most dynamic pass rush duos with Chris Long on the other side. Last season, they finished as the 13th best defense in the league in terms of points, and gave every team in their division, including the Seattle Seahawks, everything they could handle.

The key to the Rams success will ride, once again, on the shoulders of former number one overall pick, Sam Bradford. He’s coming off a torn ACL and the Rams are doing their best to surround him with talent.

Second year wide receiver, Tavon Austin, has potential to be one of the best deep threat receivers in the league and is already considered a dynamic kick/punt returner. Not to mention, he’s one of the best secret weapons in Madden 25.

While they didn’t make a huge splash in free agency, the Rams drafted three of the more interesting prospects that I had been keeping my eye on, starting with offensive tackle, Greg Robinson. They added all pro left tackle, Jake Long, last off-season so the addition of Robinson could make there front five that much stronger. He was viewed as the best offensive lineman in this draft class and you could understand why. considering how dominant he was last season with Auburn and their crazy rushing attack.

Partner that with his college teammate, running back Tre Mason, and you have almost half of Auburn’s success on one team. Tre Mason was a stud last season, as most Missouri fans remember from the SEC Championship game.

You guys are gonna put my head on a pitch fork for this one, but I see the Chiefs coughing this game up to the Rams. For some reason, I just have a bad feeling and the Chiefs will do their annual “not show up at home” this week.

Chiefs lose this game, 28-17.
