The Packers face what many believe to be an easy challenge: to beat the struggling 0-4 Rams. Sitting at 5-0, the Packers are the biggest favorites of the week, but no game should be taken lightly. The Rams nearly won their division title last year and were one of the most improved teams of 2010. This year, they were expected by many to make the next step and win the weak NFC West.
However, sitting at 0-4, the Rams have struggled, both because of poor play and playing against difficult competition in teams like Philadelphia, Baltimore and the New York Giants. The Rams now have an even more difficult task as they travel to Lambeau and play against the defending Super Bowl champions.
While I believe the Packers will win, here are a few reason that the struggling Rams may prove to be a more difficult competitor than people may think.
