The Patriots’ struggles on third down against the Jets nearly cost them a divisional road win but New England survived the first of their two matchups with the Jets – games that are always close no matter how much the Jets are struggling.
A 3-1 start has turned into a 4-7 record and the Los Angeles Rams are seeing all parts of their franchise fall apart.
The defense, coach, quarterback play, and relationship with former players (see Eric Dickerson) are all a mess right now and a trip to New England likely won’t help fix any of it.
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams have finally turned to Jared Goff and the results have been somewhat as expected. He has shown signs of the talent expected out of the number one overall pick but also the usual rookie mistakes.
Goff had a strong first half last week against the Saints but followed it with a forgettable second half.
The rookie quarterback threw the first 3 touchdowns of his career but also had a fumble and interception as the Rams managed just zero second half points.
The defense has been solid for the most part this season – considering the inconsistency of their offense. The Rams are averaging 15.5 points per game while only allowing 21.5 points per game.
They have managed two wins this season when scoring less than 10 points. Credit to their defense there but there is no way that will work against New England.
Their 49-21 loss to New Orleans this past week was just the third time this season the Rams scored more than 20 points.
Goff may be their quarterback of the future but he has a ways to go and this week against a Patriots defense that is allowing just 17.9 points per game will not be a step in the right direction for him.
New England Patriots
The Jets always play the Patriots close so surviving on the road against them despite playing arguably their worst game since Brady’s return is an important result.
Yet, the Patriots have some concerns for the long-term. Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett are both banged up, Brady is playing on a bum knee, and the defense is struggling to force turnovers.
All of that going on and the Patriots are still 9-2 with 3 of their next 4 games at home.
With the Dolphins lingering at 7-4, the Patriots normal divisional lead to start December is not as safe as past years.
The Patriots haven’t been their normal selves the past 3 games but still found a way to win two of them. The key to this week’s game will be not overlooking the Rams.
While the Rams offense has been very bad, their defense is solid and could hold a banged up Patriots offense in check.
Not the Pats are in danger of losing this game, but allowing a Rams offense to hang around could be dangerous as players like Todd Gurley and Tavon Austin have big play potential and could change the course of the game just like that.
NFL Betting Trends:

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Under 44.5
The Rams will more than likely be held under 20 points yet again this season. The Patriots offense is banged up so they likely won’t hang a ton of points on the board.
I like the Pats to win while they play conservative and try to get healthy.
NFL Free Score Prediction: New England 24 – Los Angeles 9
The Patriots should cover this game but the play is the under. The Rams defense is legit and should hold the Pats back from their normal scoring average.
