The Rams host the Bears in this NFC showdown and this situation sets up nicely for them coming off a bye, while Chicago had to go into OT last week in a win over Baltimore. Chicago’s defense is banged up and ranked 31st in the league against the run, having had a 100 yard rusher against them the last 3 in a row and last 4 out of 5. Since Zac Stacey took over as the starting RB, the St Louis ground game has stabilized and they will need to pound the Chicago defense today for Kellen Clemons to be effective. But it looks like they have started to get WR Tavon Austin integrated into the offense as he had 2 long TD strikes against Indy. Josh McCown, has played well filling in for QB Cutler, but he will face a stout St Louis front 4 who can get after the QB, especially on turf. We really like the Rams here, rested and in a noisy dome at home. The Sharps say….
3 UNITS - ST LOUIS RAMS (-1)
