The St. Louis Rams need a win here to get a game above a .500 record. Nick Foles is completing 58.2 percent of his passes for 1,478 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions. Foles has one touchdown pass in his last three games. Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin have combined for 611 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Jared Cook has 20 receptions. The St. Louis Rams ground game is averaging 135.5 yards per contest, and Todd Gurley leads the way with 664 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, St. Louis is allowing 18.3 points and 323.8 yards per game. James Laurinaitis leads the Rams with 60 tackles, Aaron Donald has 4.5 sacks and Janoris Jenkins has nine pass deflections. Chase Reynolds, Chris Long and Robert Quinn are questionable.
The Bears are 11-27 ATS in their last 38 vs. NFC and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Rams are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in November. The Bears are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
Both of these teams have been finding ways to lose and ways to win in the final minutes. In fact, the Bears have either won or lost their last five games by three or less points. While the Rams may win this game, this is too many points for me to pass up between two teams that have been so up-and-down this season.
