THE TEAM NEWS

LOS ANGELES RAMS

  • Los Angeles Rams were stifled by a superb defensive performance by San Francisco which meant they lost a third consecutive game, the first time that has happened under head coach Sean McVay.
  • The Rams have been busy during the week in the CB position after placing Aqib Talib on IR with a rib injury and trading Marcus Peters to the Ravens but they made a statement move for Jalen Ramsey as they spent big to convince the Jaguars to part ways with him.
  • Star Rams RB Todd Gurley had to sit out last week's contest with a quad injury but he has a chance of returning to the team this week after logging two limited practices in the early part of the week.

ATLANTA FALCONS

  • Atlanta Falcons dropped to 1-5 as Matt Bryant's missed PAT resulted in Arizona edging his team out in a loss that will be difficult to take, especially as they face a tough contest against the LA Rams this week.
  • The Falcons were without CBs Desmond Trufant and Blidi Wreh-Wilson against the Cardinals but will be hopeful they can return in Week 7, although the former was still a non-participant at practice on Wednesday and Thursday.
  • G James Carpenter could also be a doubt with a knee injury after he was forced to sit out Thursday’s practice despite appearing in a limited capacity on Wednesday whilst several others will be keen to log a full practice before game day.

THE PREDICTION

Los Angeles Rams do not look like the same team that reached the Super Bowl last season as their struggles continued against San Francisco. The Rams lost a third game in a row but travel to Atlanta here who have just one win all season and can snap their losing streak at three games. The Rams will be hopeful of handing a debut to new acquisition Jalen Ramsey after his arrival from the Jaguars and he could play a key role in helping his new team get back to winning ways.
