The Week 12 Rams-Packers game just got more interesting

The return by the Rams to Lambeau Field already stood out as one of the most intriguing games of Week Twelve. That game has gotten a lot more intriguing.

With Beckham, who meandered through various top choices over the course of the past seven days, ultimately picking the Rams over the Packers, the cheeseheads likely will be letting Beckham hear it on November 28. And the Packers will have a little extra motivation to stick it to L.A.

The Rams, who play the 49ers on Monday night, will have 13 days to get ready for the trip to Green Bay, thanks to a Week 11 bye. That means even more time for coach Sean McVay to plan for the best way to use OBJ against the Packers, one of the other top contenders for the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Other games that stand out on the schedule for the OBJ Teddy KGB Rams include the Cardinals in Week 14 (on Monday night), the Seahawks in Week 15, a trip to Minnesota to play the Vikings in Week 16, a game at the Ravens in Week 17, and a season-ending visit from the 49ers.

  1. The game is no more interesting because Beckham chose between multiple suitors. There are 5 contenders in the NFC.

    When two contenders play past mid-season it’s a must try game….but whatever Beckham does/does not really won’t matter (until the playoffs).

  2. Beckham is an afterthought. This matchup was inherently compelling regardless of where one overrated, insignificant free agent landed.

  3. The Rams being all in per media reporting consists of an injured DE/LB and an oft injured WR, both in the declining times of their careers. They both may have a few plays left in the tank, but neither are close to their elite talent levels of play anymore.

  4. DYING to see a healthy Donald against that Packer O-line.

    He was owned in the Divisional Round game, but he wasn’t playing at 100%

    Don’t think we’ll see much though. Reminiscent of the GB-SF matchups of the 90s. The teams know eachother backwards and forwards. Same offense. Same defense. McVay and LaFleuer are gonna leave a few in the clip for a January matchup.

  5. For the record, yes, the Rams are “all in” this year. And they’ll be “all in” next year too. And the year after that. And the year after that. And the year after that. You all get the idea.

  6. “all in” next year too.

    +++++

    “all in” with no draft picks, little cash, and declining skills ends up about 7-10….no matter how good the Coach. Maybe not next year, but soon enough.

  7. If I hear one more time that the Rams have no draft picks… They’ve had 26 over the last 3 years, and 23 are still with the team. Next year, after comp picks are awarded, they will start out with 8 picks. I’m pretty sure 8 does not equal zero.

    You are 100% correct.
    I meant no good picks.
