The Kansas City Chiefs are touted as a potential Super Bowl challenger for this season. While it’s still early days, things are going according to plan so far. The hosts hold the first seed in the AFC Conference, leaving them set for a spot in the January playoffs. Until then, the aim will be to strengthen their position by either maintaining or improving their current seeding.
Los Angeles Rams Form
A 27-20 defeat last week against New Orleans Saints extended the losing streak of the Los Angeles Rams to four matches. It also brought their overall record for the past 10 games to 3-7.
Things haven’t improved on the offense front for the Los Angeles Rams at all, having put just 17.6 points on board across the last five matches. In all, the offense has averaged 16.8 points for the season. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The visitors have given up 22.2 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 22.7 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.
As the reigning Super Bowl champions, only a successful title defense will do for the Los Angeles Rams. A spot in the playoffs come the end of the regular season will be the bare minimum expected for a team that finished one in the NFC West, won the NFC Championship, and lifted the famous Vince Lombardi Trophy.
