Week 15: Packers vs. Rams

What has happened to the Rams? The defending Super Bowl champions have lost five of their past six games and look on course for a playoff-less season, just months after defeating the Cincinnati Bengals to win a championship.

Both the Packers and Rams could be out of playoff contention by Week 15. Who would’ve predicted that in August?

Outside of Cooper Kupp, the Rams have struggled offensively. They are averaging just 68.1 rushing yards per game, a league-low.

Matthew Stafford, meanwhile, only has 1,928 passing yards and eight touchdowns with eight interceptions over the opening eight games.

With Stafford and Kupp dealing with injuries, the Rams may struggle to stay in contention over the coming weeks.

The Packers have beaten the Rams at home in each of the past two seasons, including a divisional-round victory in 2020.

Both of these teams are tough to predict currently. They enter Week 11 a combined 7-12. Since Week 4, they are a combined 3-10.

So, trying to predict which team will win this game isn’t easy. However, with it being played at Lambeau Field and given the Rams’ struggles to move the ball on the ground, I’m going for a Green Bay win.

If the Packers can pick up three wins in their next four, they will remain very much in the wild-card race.

Prediction: Win (7-7)
