John Franklin-Myers Color Rush Jersey

A mere three seasons after moving back to Los Angeles , and two seasons removed from thearchaic Jeff Fisher regime, the Los Angeles Rams will have a shot to achieve the unthinkable. A parade, a possible national following, and all the glory that comes with hoisting a Lombardi Trophy is one victory away, but their final test will be no joke. The New England Patriots, after an uneven regular season, have looked like wily old surgeons since the playoffs began. Tom Brady has looked comfortable and effective in New England’s victories over the Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs, largely thanks to a complete lack of pressure by either opponent’s defense.The Chargers, who brought their killer combo of defensive ends, Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram III, to Foxboro for the divisional round, where only able to generate two quarterback hits and no sacks against Brady. In that game, Brady relied on a ton of quick release work underneath and swing passes to frustrate and abuse the Chargers normally solid defense. In the AFC championship game, the Patriots went to Kansas City to face the Chiefs who led the league with 52 sacks this season. Granted, against the Chiefs teams where often in throwing situations while trying to claw back into games against Patrick Mahomes and company, but guys Dee Ford, Chris Jones, and Justin Houston should be able to get home at least a few times per game. Not against Brady though. Again, Brady wasn’t sacked, and was only hit once. For Brady, he has dropped back a total of 92 times this postseason, and has yet to be sacked. So will the Rams be able to do something that the respected pass rushes of the Chiefs and Chargers couldn’t do, and disrupt Tom Brady in the Super Bowl? It’s been well chronicled that Wade Phillips’ Denver Broncos defense tortured Tom Brady in the 2016 AFC championship game. That game didn’t resemble this year’s Patriots playoff run at all. Against the Broncos, Brady was hit a whopping 23 times and sacked 4 times. By the end of the game Brady was hearing footsteps, even on the few dropbacks when he did have time. In that game, Phillips gave Brady plenty of looks, but didn’t really rely on blitzes; instead trusting linebackers Von Miller, and DeMarcus Ware to win their matchups, with some help from the interior. The Broncos were able to limit the Patriots to 44 yards rushing that day John Franklin-Myers Color Rush Jersey , which may be a good place for the Rams to start in Sunday’s matchup.The Rams personnel is clearly different than the 2016 Broncos defense, which was one of the best units of all time. The Rams push will come up the middle, behind their twin tanks Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, who have been spectacular this postseason. Donald led the league with 106 pressures this season, and 20.5 sacks. In two postseason games so far, Suh has 7 pressures while doing a phenomenal job against the run. Suh also did a nice job of disrupting running back Alvin Kamara’s route running out of the backfield in the NFC championship, something that could come in handy against pass catching phenom James White of the Patriots. The Patriots will likely tie up their entire interior line with the task of limiting Donald and Suh via double teams. Guards Joe Thuney and Shaq Mason, along with center David Andrews have played spectacularly this postseason, and will be a tough three-headed monster for the Rams to deal with. Look for Wade Phillips to constantly allow Donald and Suh to slide around the line and attack from different gaps in order to keep the Patriots out of rhythm. If the big two for the Rams can create a quick push up the gut, that may be a perfect prescription to disrupt Brady who isn’t mobile and like to get the ball out fast. After that, if the Patriots are indeed tying up multiple linemen with Suh and Donald, guys like Michael Brockers, and EDGEs Dante Fowler and Samson Ebukam must make the Patriots pay. However, the Patriots have a pair of solid tackles in Marcus Cannon and Trent Brown as well as fullback James Devlin to try to buy some time for Brady, so things won’t be easy. Coverage wise, the Rams should be able to match up with Patriots receivers Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, and Cordarrelle Patterson. The question will be how well they matchup with tight end Rob Gronkowski and James White on intermediate and short routes. Will it be safety John Johnson III on Gronk with linebacker Cory Littleton watching White out of the backfield? Will the Rams use linemen to check White and throw off the Pats offensive rhythm? Will Aqib Talib help on Gronk, just as he did on opening night against the Raiders’ tight end Jared Cook? We’ll see what Wade is cooking up, but whatever it is, expect things to keep changing before Brady’s eyes. This Patriots line is in far better shape than the one that faced Denver three years ago; but the Rams, unlike the Broncos are capable of adding pressure by scoring in bunches. If the Rams can put Brady in a comeback situation where they don’t have to watch the run as closely, they may be in business. Of course, this is Tom Brady we’re talking about so comebacks aren’t exactly a terrifying prospect for him or the Patriots.Time will tell how this ultimately plays out, but the chess match should be incredible. Two division leaders square off on Sunday night in Week 14, as the Los Angeles Rams (11-1) head east to take on the Chicago Bears (8-4) in a must-watch primetime game with serious playoff implications. The Rams - who earned their second straight NFC West crown in last week’s win in Detroit - are looking to lock up a first round bye, while the Bears aim to stay atop their division and stave off the second place Minnesota Vikings. This should prove to be one of the tougher tests for the Rams in 2018. Can their high-powered offense carry the team to victory against a very stout Bears’ defense? The Turf Show Times staff make their predictions...gorams (@AndrewKulick)Tubbs and Bears offense struggle against Rams improved defensePrediction: Rams win, 27-13RamBuck (@lannyosu)Three words: Aaron “Gamewrecker” Donald.Prediction: Rams win Marcus Peters Jersey , 24-17Charlie Hiller (@charliehiller)Chicago deep dish is a tomato pie, not a pizza.Prediction: Rams win, 27-24Eddie Perez (@iAmEddieP_)Chicago has a tough defense. The Detroit game expose some ways slow down the Rams offense. It’ll be interesting to see what the Bears scheme up to put a halt to Gurley/Goff. We gotta remember they have Khalil Mack ready to tee off in Goff. Of create some sort of other havoc.I, however, do not believe it will be enough to stop the offense. Goff/Gurley will get theirs. The defense‘s last outing was promising. We will see if CB Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters, OLB Dante Fowler Jr., & Samson Ebukam continue to build.Prediction: Rams win, 27-21Eric Nagel (@Eric_nagel)What happens first, the Rams clinch home field advantage, or Aaron Donald breaks the single season sack record?Prediction: Rams win, 27-20Skye Sverdlin (@skyeattolah)This could be the second loss of a 14-2 season, which almost sounds about right. But the Rams usually win, and they usually end up in competitive games, so let’s stick with the script for this prediction, with a defense that now seems capable of making a few stops through four quarters.Prediction: Rams win, 33-31Kristian Ramirez (@KristianRamirez)The Bears defense deserves respect. They have the DE equivalent of AD99 on top of an interception machine in the secondary. But as is my motto, in McBae we trust, I think the offense will be ready.Prediction: Rams win, 31-17Elijah Kim (@Big_EZK)The Rams travel to cold and windy Chicago to take on the Bears who will likely have QB Mitchell Trubisky back after missing two weeks with an injury. In a battle of perhaps the two best defensive players between Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack, the Rams will be playing in primetime (first of two consecutive SNF games) and look to essentially lock up a bye week with a victory.With Trubisky probably not at 100% and Rams QB Jared Goff looking to rebound from his off game in Detroit, the Rams get an important victory on the road.Prediction: Rams win, 28-24Tevin Broner (@T_Bron)The Bears’ defense has playmakers which should lead to turnovers and if Eddie Jackson gets his hands on the ball in the secondary, they could get 7 points. Mack is also a game changer like Donald.On offense, the Bears have players to stress the defense and if Mitch runs with the ball it could be a problem.Prediction: Bears win, 24-17Joey Aucoin (@LARamsRamsRams)Bears are defensively stout and it’s gonna be cold for Jared Goff’s tiny hands. So, it’s gonna be messy and close. Prediction: Rams win, 17-16Hotdaddywags (@hotdaddywags)Tough call here. If last week’s Rams offense shows up, we could be in trouble on the road against an elite defense in the cold. I don’t expect Jared Goff to have another off game. If anything Aqib Talib Color Rush Jersey , I’d expect his struggles against Detroit to sharpen his play. Plus, kid’s money in primetime. Patience will the the key, as Chicago likely won’t surrender the explosive plays we’re used to getting, and we’ll need to be solid on third down to keep the chains moving. We’re not likely to put up 40, but we’ll score enough to win. Tarik Cohen presents a real challenge, as does Bitch Trubisky when he scrambles — both guys will expose our LBs on occasion, and keep the Bears in the game. It’ll come down to Greg the Leg, and late.Prediction: Rams win, 26-23Michael Frank (@turfshowtimesmike)Cold. Should come down to the running game and which Defense makes the most plays. Massive game or game manager, I believe this game comes down to Goff and limiting mistakes as an offense.Prediction: Rams win, 34-24Brennan Smith (@BrennanJSmith)Aaron Donald is tossing around quarterbacks of the NFC North like it’s his job after a dominant run against the Lions last week. Whether or not Mitchell Trubisky plays or not, Donald should have a field day again under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football. On the other side, protection is at a premium against Khalil Mack and Jared Goff will need to be sharper against a tough Bears defense. Todd Gurley is the key in what could be a knock down, drag out fight in the Chicago cold. Rams take this one, 28-14.Prediction: Rams win, 28-14Sosa Kremenjas (@QBsMVP)The Rams will likely meet their toughest match facing off against the Bears’ defense. The offensive line is going to be paramount in this game as the Bears can stop the run very effectively and have two of the best defensive lineman in the league in Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks. The Rams’ defense will have to remain sound and be prepared for all kinds of weird shifts, motions, and QB scrambles if Mitch Trubisky plays. I’ll still roll with the Rams, they’re just too hot and talented right now. They also have the Saints riding their coattails.Prediction: Rams win, 31-27seattlerams (@seattlerams_nfl)The Bears have the 2nd best rush defense in the league, boast two of the NFL’s top three interception leaders in Kyle Fuller and Eddie Jackson, and have a monster on the edge in the form of Khalil Mack. This should spell certain doom for an LA Rams team playing on the road on a cold Chicago evening before a national audience.But it won’t! The Rams will take this one.Prediction: Rams win, 30-28Sean Wilkinson (@Papa_Lurch)The Rams will again hit prime time on Sunday Night Football against a resurgent Bears team. What intrigues me most about this matchup is the conversation that will be had about Aaron Donald v Khalil Mack. In a NFL dominated by high flying offenses, it will be nice to see the conversation shift to a couple of dominant defensive players - and see Donald wreck the Bears offensive line.Prediction: Rams win, 27-243k (@3k_)Prediction: Bears win, 24-20Brandon Bate (@NoPlanB_)Something’s got to give, right? High-powered offense against a very stout defense. Warm weather team on the road in freezing temps...But the something that’s got to give is the Rams. And they’re going to give the Bears a loss in their own house this weekend. Prediction: Rams win, 24-20
