3. Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams sit ahead of the Saints in the Wild Card race with a 5-6 record, which is good for third in the NFC West behind the Niners and Seahawks. They will look to stay ahead of New Orleans and move forward with the Green Bay Packers.
Still, they will take on a talented Cleveland Browns' defense this week, who will have four-time Pro Bowl defensive end Myles Garrett ready to go on Sunday after he injured his shoulder last week in a loss to the Broncos.
The Browns offense will be something to monitor against Los Angeles' defense, with veteran quarterback Joe Flacco starting this Sunday for Cleveland. The move comes after Browns' signal-callers Deshaun Watson and backup Dorian Thompson-Robinson suffered injuries, ruling them out against the Rams this week.
Despite the 5-6 record, the Rams have had some gritty wins this season, including two over their divisional rival Seattle Seahawks. They match up well with the Browns, who have the 38-year-old veteran at quarterback and their star edge-rusher banged up from a severe shoulder injury last week. Still, Big Blue fans will be rooting for Cleveland to grab a win on the road this week to improve the Giants' playoff hopes.
