The Pats Need a Win Tonight Against the Rams to Keep Their Playoff Hopes Alive
The Patriots have a rare Thursday Night Football appearance tonight against the L.A. Rams in Cali. With their dominate win last Sunday against the Chargers the Pats evened up their record to 6-6 on the season. This will be the first game against the Rams since the Pats 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII.
The Pats are still in the Wild Card hunt hoping to pull even with a win this week and losses by the Raiders and Ravens…both currently at 7-5 on the season. The Dolphins and Colts would be the next rung on the ladder with both of them at 8-4 on the year and currently in a Wild Card position.
Following the Rams games the Patriots will have three games left in the regular season and all against AFC teams. The Dolphins, Bills and Jets will all need to be in the win column for the Patriots to have any chance of a playoff berth.
If you are betting all your Christmas Club money on tonight’s game, the Rams are giving up 5 points to the Pats. The over-under is at 44.5 points.
The Patriots can be heard tonight on WNAW AM 1230 in North Adams and WBEC-AMAM 1420 in Pittsfield starting with the pre-game show at 7:30 and kickoff at 8:20. The game will be televised tonight on FOX.
