Atlanta Falcons at Los Angeles Rams - 1/6/18 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Thanks to the Los Angeles Rams ending up on the losing end Saturday night 26-13, Doug Pederson and company will now face the defending NFC champions in the Atlanta Falcons next Saturday, which should make for an interesting battle.

Now, it's impossible to expect Atlanta's defence to bottle up Rams star Todd Gurley completely, especially on the ground AND in the passing game...

Despite all the punchlines, the Rams hardly have reason to hang their heads.

The Rams saw one of the NFL's most drastic transformations this season under 31-year-old rookie head coach Sean McVay, becoming the first-ever team go from last in scoring to first in just one season. That trio alone already gives them an excellent long-term foundation for sustainable winning. But with weapons like Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman for Matt Ryan to work with, the Eagles understand the Falcons aren't a team to take lightly.

There's been no shortage of talk about the Rams' lack of playoff experience this week.

Her mother had accompanied her to the meeting but it did not stop Moore from "grabbing" her buttocks as she left, she claimed. Johnson accused Moore of groping her while they were in his office in the early 1990s, according to The Associated Press .

The Rams went 11-5 to win the NFC West for the first time since 2003. If this game wasn't in Southern California, the Rams would definitely have a harder time. Would you be surprised if he had a three interception game?

After a frighteningly unproductive 2016 season, Gurley led the league in total yards from scrimmage in 2017 and is a legit MVP candidate.

The touchdown reception was the seventh for Jones in eight postseason games. After that season, Quinn jumped back into the coaching ranks in the NFL, and he remembers scouting Gurley II when he declared for the 2015 NFL Draft. "We knew the physicality of style we wanted to play, so I definitely had an eye on him and looked at him and evaluated him. So he had kind of the combination of the make you miss and the ability to kind of size you up and run you over".

The Falcons couldn't muster much on offense during the drive but turned the Rams' miscue into three points when Matt Bryant booted a 29-yard field goal.

The game at L.A. Memorial Coliseum kicks off at 8:15 p.m.
