THE TEAM NEWS

LOS ANGELES RAMS

  • Los Angeles Rams made it back-to-back wins as they defeated Cincinnati to improve to 5-3 in the week before their bye but they still have plenty of work to do to remain in contention for the post-season in a tough NFC West division.
  • Rams WR Brandin Cooks suffered his second concussion of the season against the Bengals and he will be forced to sit this game out due to the stringent concussion protocols in place with Cooper Kupp and Roberts Woods set for more targets.
  • Linebacker Bryce Hager was a non-participant at Wednesday’s practice due to a shoulder complaint and he was joined by defensive tackle Tanzel Smart who was suffering from an illness but the latter should be fine to suit up.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS

  • Pittsburgh made it three wins in a row as they held on to beat Indianapolis but they were thankful that the Colts missed a late field goal attempt that would have condemned the Steelers to defeat.
  • The Steelers will hope to have RB James Conner back this week but his back-up Jaylen Samuels was brilliant in his absence and even if Conner returns, a shared workload could be on the cards this week.
  • Seven players sat out Wednesday’s practice for the Steelers, although three of those were not injury related, with two of their back-up running backs unable to participate which could put further pressure on Conner and Samuels.

THE PREDICTION

This is an intriguing contest between two teams who are both trending in the right direction. Pittsburgh made it three wins in a row as they edged Indianapolis but this could be a more difficult task against a refreshed team on the back of their bye. Los Angeles Rams have performed well in their last two games and they should be able to make it three in a row here but the Steelers will make it tough for them.
