What you need to know about the Rams

It was all tied up 10-10 at halftime, but the Rams were not quite the Buffalo Bills’ level in the second half when they met last week. Los Angeles found itself on the wrong end of an unpleasant 31-10 setback against Buffalo. QB Matthew Stafford had a tough game: despite one touchdown, he threw three interceptions with only 5.85 yards per passing attempt in his worst home start since joining the Rams.

The Rams still have elite talent on both sides of the ball with wide receiver Cooper Kupp, defensive tackle Aaron Donald and cornerback Jalen Ramsey all arguably the best player at their respective positions in the league. All three played well against the Bills, but the Rams will need a better performance out of their supporting cast to cover a double-digit point spread against the Falcons.

What you need to know about the Falcons

Meanwhile, Atlanta was hampered by 114 penalty yards against the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday. The Falcons lost 27-26 to New Orleans. Atlanta was up 23-10 at the end of the third quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. RB Cordarrelle Patterson put forth a good effort for the losing side as he rushed for one TD and 120 yards on 22 carries.

The Falcons are in the midst of a rebuilding project, but they do have a few nice pieces on both sides of the ball. Second-year tight end Kyle Pitts is an emerging star with game-breaking ability. Veteran defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, who racked up 1.5 sacks in Week 1, remains one of the NFL’s best interior defenders. Rookie wide receiver Drake London drew rave reviews in training camp, but will face a stiff test this week against Ramsey.
