New England Patriots vs. St Louis Rams (London, UK) : Previews & Predictions

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIOctober 22, 2012

The St. Louis Rams might technically be the home team, but with both the Rams and New England Patriots facing off "across the pond" in London, the idea of home-field advantage seems a bit silly. Although the idea of New England playing in "old England" doesn't sound very legitimate, either.

New England (4-3) have found themselves playing in more close games than they're typically accustomed to. Three of the Pats' last five games have been decided by a combined five points. Fortunately for head coach Bill Belichick, New England went 2-1 in those games. Tom Brady has been awesome, and the team's discovery of a running game with running back Stevan Ridley has been an added benefit.

St. Louis (3-4) has been competitive in most of their games with first-year head coach Jeff Fisher. The Rams have played well on defense, forcing turnovers and, by and large, giving their offense an opportunity to win games. The injury to wide receiver Danny Amendola has been an obstacle, as has the decline of running back Steven Jackson.
