Can anybody beat the Rams?

That’s the biggest question in the NFC right now. Los Angeles (7-0) has breezed through its first seven contests, averaging 33.6 points per game behind MVP candidates Jared Goff and Todd Gurley. 

It will be up to the Green Bay Packers to try to put a stop to the Rams’ dominance. But if there is any quarterback you would want to take on that task, Aaron Rodgers would probably be the choice. 

The Packers are 3-2-1 this season, with Rodgers leading improbable comebacks in two of those wins. If the Rams do have a weak point, it’s that their defense has stumbled at times against strong competition. Those factors could lead to a tightly contested game.

Sporting News will provide live updates from Packers-Rams.
