Los Angeles Rams To Win Super Bowl (14-1)
Wes Reynolds: Yes, Matthew Stafford was 16 games under .500, started only three playoff games and made just one Pro Bowl in 12 seasons in Detroit. But sometimes the numbers do lie. Stafford not only passes the eye test, he aces it. Sean McVay and Les Snead certainly believe so as they traded two future first-round picks, a 2021 third-rounder and Jared Goff to acquire Stafford. The Rams are putting all their chips in the middle of the table for this season -- and likely 2022 as well.
Stafford always had receivers in Detroit and has an excellent group in Los Angeles with Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson and Tyler Higbee. Losing RB Cam Akers to a season-ending Achilles injury is a blow, but one the Rams can withstand. The defense led the NFL last season and has two of the best defensive players in the league with Aaron Donald, who won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award facing double and triple teams, and Jalen Ramsey. While Stafford has a losing record against winning teams, he has never had a defense capable of getting stops and will not have to constantly play from behind. The Rams play in the league’s best division, but this will have them battle-tested for a deep run.
