Packers vs. Rams Prediction
The Packers have a huge test in front of them as they travel to play the Rams. The Rams have looked unbeatable this year and are just killing everyone that they play. Don’t put a victory past Aaron Rodgers, as he can lead his team to a win over any team he plays. Goff will prove to be too much for the Packers, though, as the Rams keep rolling and secure another win against the Packers pulling them ahead in the all-time series.
