Bengals will beat Rams
November 27, 2015
On Sunday, the St. Louis Rams will travel to Cincinnati to play the Bengals. The Rams just came off a loss to the Baltimore Ravens. In the final seconds of the game, Baltimore’s Justin Tucker kicked a field goal, pushing them to victory. The final score of the game was 16-13. The Bengals just played the Arizona Cardinals, and lost 34-31. The Rams are currently 4-6 and are third in NFC West. The Bengals are 8-2 and are first in their division, AFC North.
Former Eagle, Nick Foles, leads St. Louis in passing. Foles has thrown for 1,678 yards this season, completing 145 out of 256 attempts. He has seven touchdowns on the season.
Rookie Todd Gurley, former Georgia Bulldog, leads the team in rushing this year. Gurley has run the ball 155 times, collecting 775 yards. He is averaging five yards per carry this season and has six touchdowns under his belt.
Kenny Britt leads the Rams in receiving. Britt has caught 18 passes for 341 yards this season. Currently, he averages 18.9 yard per catch and he has one touchdown on the season.
Andy Dalton, aka the “Red Rifle”, leads the Bengals in passing. Dalton has completed 218 out of 335 passes for 2,738 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Giovani Bernard leads Cincinnati in rushing. Bernard has 565 rushing yards this season on 105 carries. He is currently averaging 5.4 yards per carry and has two touchdowns this year.
A.J. Green leads the team in receiving. Green has 848 yards, catching 59 passes. He is currently averaging 14.4 yards per catch and has four touchdowns on the season.
For this game I’m taking the Bengals. They’re obviously mad from a loss to the Cardinals, and they’ll be playing at home. The Rams pass defense isn’t half as good as the Cardinals. When Andy Dalton settles down he makes big plays. However, expect Bernard to have some trouble as he rushes against the Rams notorious defensive line with names like Robert Quinn and Aaron Donald. Todd Gurley can possibly have a great game, but can’t put the whole team on his back.
