Form says the Green Bay Packers should beat the living daylights out of the St. Louis Rams Sunday at Lambeau Field.

This is one where that Any Given Sunday stuff is a real stretch.

It's even a stretch to reach for "The Obvious is Obviously Wrong" warning label for this one.

The obvious is that the Green Bay Packers are 5-0 and on a roll while the Rams are looking mostly like Lambs with that 0-4 mark of theirs.

Probably the best way to sum it up is that the Rams are bringing a butter knife to a gun fight.

You don't see two-touchdown spreads that often in the NFL, not really.

Depending where you look, Green Bay is anywhere from a 14.5 to 15.5 point favorite.

If statistics are for losers, then bad statistics are even more for losers. The Rams are 31st in the league in scoring defense, 27th in total defense and get the bum's rush against the rush—they're dead last, 32nd.

This bodes pretty well for Aaron Rodgers and the Packer offense that is tops in the league in scoring.

It's also hard to imagine the Packers being overconfident. They are where they are because of their work ethic and team unity, among other things.

They even got a taste of what it's like to be behind by two touchdowns last week in Atlanta.

If you're looking for any good reasons whatsoever why the Rams can win this game, you're not going to find them here.

It simply won't happen.

If and when Green Bay loses its first game this season, it's a decent bet that it won't happen at Lambeau.

What is going to happen Sunday is that the Rams will be totally one dimensional. They won't be able to run the football which puts it all on Sam Bradford's arm.

Now Bradford's good, but he's not that good.

Unfortunately for him and the rest of the Rams, the Packers are good.

Really good.
