The Packers should be favored by at least a touchdown.
While the Packers were busy scoring 42 points against Houston, one of the NFL's best teams, the Rams were busy scoring, well, a couple of touchdowns in their 17-14 loss.
Actually, make that just one touchdown and a two-point conversion along with a couple of field goals.
But these days, that's normal for the Rams.
After a 2-14 season, the Rams have started 3-3 and are a league leading 5-1 against the spread, which is a constant reminder to give a closer look to bad teams at the beginning of the following season when it comes to covering the spread because they are undervalued (the opposite is true for very good teams, such as last season's 15-1 Green Bay Packers, who have started 2-4 against the spread).
But the Rams' three wins have come over a pair of rookie quarterbacks and a now-inept Cardinals offense in a game in which Sam Bradford was just 7-of-21 passing.
The Rams actually scored two touchdowns in their Thursday night win over Arizona.
They will likely need to score two more for this game.
But the problem is, touchdowns don't come easy for the Rams.
Take away the game against the Redskins, and the Rams have scored a total of four offensive touchdowns in their other five games combined.
That's less than the Packers scored in one game at Houston.
Three weeks ago the Rams were actually a top play as they caught a Seattle team coming off an emotional high and favored on the road with a rookie quarterback.
The Rams won the game, but the offense couldn't even get in the end zone. Facing a second down from the Seahawks three-yard line, the Rams eventually needed to rely on a fake field goal for their only touchdown of the game.
The week before that in Chicago, they couldn't find the end zone at all.
And in NFL's opening week against Detroit and Matt Stafford, the Rams got an interception return for a touchdown while the offense only found the end zone one time.
Last season the Rams scored 30 points just one time and had a whopping 13 games where they scored one touchdown or less.
That won't cut it against the Packers.
Aside from Sam Bradford having no superstars in the cupboard to throw to, Stephen Jackson is minimally effective. A normal game for him is to have a run of 15 yards and 20 other runs of about two yards.
The Rams have some capable cornerbacks, notably Janoris Jenkins and Cortland Finnegan, but the Packers' receivers seem to have emerged after a slow start to the season.
Randall Cobb and James Jones had huge catches in their game against the Texans to go along with Jordy Nelson's three touchdown catches.
This is an offense that had its coming out party at Houston, and the drinks are just getting started.
Green Bay might end up being the No. 1 consensus play this weekend among the public, but they also won't be this little of a favorite again this season against such a weak team, so jump on the bandwagon anyway while the number is low.
Take Green Bay to cover 5 points.
