The Green Bay Packers have a big game against the Los Angeles Rams this week. If they lose these matchups, the game will be over in a hurry.

The Green Bay Packers (3-2-1) head west to take on the Los Angeles Rams (7-0) as they look to knock off on the current Super Bowl favorites. They’ve been up and down so far this season, and they will need to be more up than down this week to come out with a victory. While they have the potential to get the job done, they’re going to have to be far more up than down to make it come together.

This team has talent at all the key positions, but the Rams do as well. When fully healthy, the Rams possess arguably the best roster in the entire league. Luckily for the Packers, the Rams have a couple of injuries to key players, such as wide receiver Cooper Kupp and cornerback Aqib Talib. This is a major stretch for the Packers as they look to maintain their place in the NFC North standings.

They can certainly win this game. Having Aaron Rodgers at quarterback makes you a contender every week, but, as has been seen this season, he can only carry so much of the load for the team. This could be another of those weeks when the team comes up just short when it’s all said and done. If the team is going to get it done, these matchups are near must-wins that can keep the Packers near the division lead.
