The Los Angeles Rams are taking a trip overseas to London to face the winless Cincinnati Bengals in week eight: this could get ugly. After the Rams offense got back on track against the now 1-5 Atlanta Falcons, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be able to take advantage of another weak team on their schedule. Position by position, the Rams look to dominate the Bengals nearly everywhere you look, and if everything goes right the Rams will have a couple of breakout players in London.
David Edwards, Left Guard
David Edwards made his debut in shining fashion against the Falcons last week. The burly lineman from Wisconsin made some highlight plays and really filled in great for Joe Noteboom. It makes me wonder why he didn’t start in the first place. At any rate, Edwards will have his hands full going into Bengals week. With Geno Atkins and Sam Hubbard floating over the middle, the Bengals have a serious force and a serviceable rotation player over-center: Edwards will have another test on his hands. Watching Edwards play was a delight and I can’t wait to see what he gets done in week eight.
Cory Littleton, Inside Linebacker
Cory Littleton has been having another great season for the Los Angeles Rams, and Wade Phillips used him in a great way against the Falcons. Littleton provided a secondary source of pressure on Sunday, and Matt Ryan felt it. He also had an interception and was a reliable tackler as always. Against the Bengals, Littleton could see the same type of treatment; with Andy Dalton playing like Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati offensive line being way below average, extra pressure from Littleton could be the difference. Stuffing the run should be a major goal when going up against a back like Joe Mixon: Littleton should be up to the task.
Marqui Christian, Safety
Marqui Christian played the best football of his career against the Falcons. Tight end Austin Hooper was locked in physical warfare with Christian all night and couldn’t get much of anything on the field. Like Littleton before him, Christian will have a similar role against the Bengals. C.J Uzomah and Tyler Eifert are two for the Bengals’ best receiving threats, and if Christian can continue his hot play the Cincy offense won’t go far.
