Here at SpotPlays.com we were 3-1 on the season with our select games, which included a straight up win with the L.A. Rams on the road in the NFC Divisional Championship game. We’re back, of course, for the Big Game, and we’re riding the Rams again.
There are a lot of reasons, but the key is the Rams defense will take over this game. When Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters are both playing in the secondary, the Rams have held their opponents to a staggering low 40.0 Quarterback Rating. Donald and Suh are beasts on the defensive line. Donald is the first player since the great Lawrence Taylor to come into the Super Bowl with 20+ sacks on the season, and we expect both of these great players to have a huge game.
The bottom line is that Tom Brady is in for a long day. The Patriots were upset last year with a better football team, and they were life and death the year before to come back and beat the Falcons. The Rams will execute the New York Giants game plan of years past, which is put pressure on Tom Brady. When Brady is under relentless pressure, he becomes very ordinary.
The Rams beat the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome despite the best running back in the game, Todd Gurley, having 10 yards rushing. That won’t happen again. The C.J. Anderson/Gurley combo is very potent, and there is little to no chance of stopping both of them.
Take the Rams and the points (2 1/2) as the Big Game winner, and don’t be surprised if the Rams blow out the Patriots on Sunday night.
