The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs meet Sunday in week 12 NFL action at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. The Los Angeles Rams look to snap a 4-game losing streak. The Kansas City Chiefs look to build on their 4-game winning streak.

The Los Angeles Rams have lost 3 straight road games. Matthew Stafford is completing 68 percent of his passes for 2,087 yards, 10 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee have combined for 1,242 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns, while Allen Robinson has 33 receptions. The Los Angeles Rams ground game is averaging 76.1 yards per contest, and Darrell Henderson Jr. leads the way with 283 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 22.7 points and 312 yards per game. Bobby Wagner leads the Los Angeles Rams with 84 tackles, Aaron Donald has 5 sacks and Terrell Lewis has 1 interception.

The Kansas City Chiefs have won 4 of their last 5 home games. Patrick Mahomes is completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 3,265 yards, 28 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Travis Kelce and JuJu Smith-Schuster have combined for 1,470 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns, while Marquez Valdes-Scantling has 27 receptions.

The Rams are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Chiefs are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Rams last 5 road games. The under is 5-1 in Chiefs last 6 home games. The Rams are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

Thick line, but for good reason. The Los Angeles Rams are going nowhere fast with their lousy offensive line, no Kupp and an offense overall that's 29th in scoring. The Kansas City Chiefs are on a roll offensively and their defense can be good when it wants to be, which includes being fifth against the run. It's hard seeing the Rams put up much of a fight with an offense that's so handicapped. It's Chiefs or pass for me.
