THE TEAM NEWS

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

  • New Orleans won a dramatic game against Houston as Will Lutz kicked a superb 58-yard field goal as time expired to edge the victory but they will have to be much better if they are to defeat the LA Rams.
  • Saints WR Michael Thomas carried on where he left off last season with 10 receptions against the Texans following his league-high 125 in 2018 and he will have a big role to play in this match.
  • DT Sheldon Rankins could be a surprise inclusion this week after he was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice session with a return from a ruptured Achilles coming sooner than expected if he features.

LOS ANGELES RAMS

  • Los Angeles Rams did not have things their own way against Carolina but they managed to come out on top in an entertaining clash with a huge clash with New Orleans next up for the Rams.
  • Rams S Eric Weddle left the field with a head injury last week and will have to come through the concussion protocol to feature in Week 2 but he is expected to suit-up according to head coach Sean McVay.
  • DL Michael Brockers and LB Clay Matthews also appeared on the injury report at the start of the week and despite not practicing on Wednesday, neither issue appears to be serious and both should play.

THE PREDICTION

Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints played out two sensational matches last season and there is no reason to believe that this will not be another thriller. Both have superb talent on offense and this could be an early season shootout with both capable of scoring points for fun. The two teams can both perform better than they did last week but the Rams looked the slightly more rounded team and can edge this with home field advantage.
