The schedule makers did the Rams no favors by finishing with B2B road games and 3 in the L4W all in different environments (BUF, TB, SEA). They are in a poor situational spot after travelling out to TB LW and now having to fly up to SEA where they are 0-5 with a 29-8 avg loss. STL’s victory LW is also a bit misleading as they converted 5 TO’s into 21 pts while being outgained 429-285. In Bradford’s L3 road games he’s avg’d just 209 ypg (49%) with a 5-3 ratio. Prior to LW SEA was allowing 200 ypg pass (57%) w/a 4-9 ratio at home. While STL’s defense is vastly better (and healthier) than LY’s they have given up 129 ypg rush (4.4) the L8W as they still lack depth up front. Wilson has only thrown 1 int at home TY vs 12 td’s and his lowest home QBR has been 88.0 vs ARZ. STL’s defense had a big edge LW at TB as they have one of the worst home attendance marks in the NFL. Now the Rams have to deal with a rowdy 12th man on the road again and I’ll take the Seahawks here by 10.
The last time the Skins played a season finale with a possible playoff berth RG III was leading Copperas Cove HS to the Texas 4A championship game. Ironically that game was also at home vs Dallas. Washington has reeled off 6 straight wins and remember 2 weeks ago it was Cousins starting on the road while last week RG III had a limited game plan as he ran only twice for 4 yards. That won’t be the case here another week removed from his injury. The Cowboys lost to the New Orleans Saints but it was not the fault of Romo who continues his torrid streak (416, 60%, 4-0). One of the Cowboys losses at home was to these Skins on Thanksgiving. The QB matchup has the makings of a classic and I’ll call for the Skins by 1.
