HRWager’s NFL Free Pick focuses on the extent of damage that the defensive front of St. Louis (2-3) can inflict on the quarterback of the Cleveland Browns (2-4). An initial groundswell of support has come the Rams way as the opening line of – 4 was met with derision. Now it is at -6 1/2 and up to -7 in a few markets. Can the projected level of containment make the Rams this large of a home favorite when they meet at 10/25 at 1PM?
NFL Free Pick : Passing Grade
- Rams have 19 sacks which puts them third in the league.
- Josh McCown is not fleet a foot nor does he enjoy the same success when flushed from the pocket.
- Status of Chris Long’s knee might ding the ability of St Louis in this one.
With the ability of Cleveland to move the ball called into question for this game. One had better hope that they can at least restrain the Rams. St.Louis averages below 300 yards per game in total offense. A lone bright spot coming into this one is the other reason why the line has begun to move as it has.
Gurley is Gold?!
Todd has been the one rookie running back who has started to develop a pulse. He has not been beset by neither injuries nor fumbles. He has shown durability in getting almost fifty carries over the course of the last two games. This goes with over 300 yards in this span might help open up the passing lanes. TO bolster this effect, the Browns are horrid on defense. Only two teams give up as many yards as the Browns have on the defensive side of things.
Momentum was not gained by getting Denver into overtime. When Peyton presents you with three interceptions, your team should triumph. This is an apt display of a team going nowhere once again. St. Louis will salvage some of their season and get back to .500 in this one. Ten points is the projected level of dominance so take the Rams minus the points in our Free Pick of the Day.
