It doesn’t seem like anything can slow down the Los Angeles Rams right now. They currently boast a 7-0 record, which is the best in the NFC and the NFL as a whole.

The Rams are 7-0 for the first time in franchise history, since 1985. This years Rams are coming up on a tough four-game stretch though.

This week they face the Green Bay Packers. The following three weeks include the New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks and of course the Kansas City Chiefs.

The combined record of those teams is 17-7-1. It’ll be a true test for a young Rams squad that hopes to solidify themselves as a true contender going forward.

In Week 8 though, they will go up against the Packers. The Packers are 3-2-1, which puts them at second place in the NFC North.

As long as Aaron Rodgers is under center and Mike McCarthy is calling the shots, it seems like Packers always have a shot at a deep playoff run.

Rodgers is playing with a lingering knee injury, but is still able to make jaw-dropping plays. The Rams will need to be ready for a fight with a tough Packers team.

If the Rams want to extend their winning streak to eight games, they’ll need to complete a few key things in the entirety of this contest.
