The New England Patriots will meet the St. Louis Rams this Sunday at Wembley Stadium in Missouri this Sunday. The game could make for an interesting one, and is anything but a blow off game for the Patriots who have been a bit suspect this year. The Rams do play solid defense and are at home where they have shown to be successful. The Patriots, on the other hand, are beating teams by minimal margins and have been inconsistent on both sides of the ball.
The Patriots come into the game with a 4-3 record after barely escaping with a win from New York last week. That is when they defeated the Jets 29-26 in overtime after the Jets failed to take advantage of balls that bounced right in their direction and a win that all but landed right in their lap. They should have won the upset against the Patriots, but the Patriots apparently still have lady luck on their side. Luck can only get you so far in the NFL, however, and if the Rams could play any offense with consistency they would probably get the win.
The Rams offense ultimately will decide the game. Jeff Fisher has the team going in the right direction, but does need to get his offense to a point that matches more of the explosive passing offenses in the NFL today. Despite the offenses struggles, the team is still 3-4 led by an amazing defense that loves to get after the quarterback and create turnover. Sunday will show if the Rams have enough offense or if the Rams offense can show up.
