New Orleans are once again one of the best teams in football, sporting an 8-2 record and a defense that is finally an equal to its offense. They won their eighth straight last week in a much closer than expected 34-31 OT win over the Redskins.

It was a game Washington appeared to be in complete control of as they led 31-16 with 5:58 to go. But QB Drew Brees is one of the best in the business and he put the team on his shoulders with two straight touchdowns and 162 yards gained on the drives.

In between the improved defense forced a three and out to give the offense that final shot. And then in overtime they forced another three and out before RB Mark Ingram took over. He ran the ball twice and gained 51 yards setting up Wil Lutz for the game winning 28-yard field goal.

One of the keys to their defense had been the play of rookie CB Marshon Lattimore a favorite for rookie defensive player of the year. But they’ll be without his services this week after he suffered an ankle injury last week.
The Rams played another NFC power team last Sunday and dropped a 24-7 loss at Minnesota. It took some of the shine off a team that had been excelling on both offense and defense for weeks. They had won six of seven entering the game and had the #1 offense in the NFL. The defense had allowed 11.4 PPG through the previous five games.

Last week Minnesota put up 451 yards of offense and held the Rams running game and Todd Gurley to just 45 yards. It broke a string of seven straight with at least 100 rushing yards. QB Jarred Goff could not answer the bell once the Vikings forced him to beat them with his arm.

The defense kept them in it as it was 7-7 entering the fourth quarter before Minnesota broke through. Goff went 23-37-225-0-0 in the loss.

New Orleans is 3rd averaging 30.2 PPG and 9th allowing 19.6 PPG.

The Rams are 2nd scoring 30.3 PPG and 7th allowing 18.6 PPG.

New Orleans Saints vs. Los Angeles Rams Betting Trends & Predictions

New Orleans:
Current Streak: won 8 straight games.
New Orleans is 6-2 ATS in its last 8 games
New Orleans is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games
The total has gone OVER in 9 of New Orleans's last 13 games

LA Rams:
LA Rams is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games
LA Rams is 7-14-1 ATS in its last 22 games
LA Rams is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games

The Bottom Line:
The Rams are -2.5 favorites in this one and have not had a quality win since a 27-17 win over the Jaguars on October 15th. The same could be said of the Saints whose wins have come against teams with losing records, and a Packers team missing Aaron Rodgers. The only win against a quality team was their first, a 34-13 win over the Panthers. The loss of Lattimore should help the Rams to find a way to get the offense going and that gives them the edge. The Pick: Rams 28-24.

Liev Jackson NFL Predictions: LA Rams -2½
Total O/U: Under 53½
