Falcons vs. Rams Short Preview/ Open Game Thread

The Rams are in pretty dire straits, which makes this game ripe for an "upset." The Falcons may not be considered favorites here, I grant you. Still, they have all the same problems we do--quarterback injuries, an ineffective line--plus a subpar defense. It's going to be an ugly game, but a workmanlike performance from Harrington and the full integration of Snelling and Norwood into the offense...well, I think this is a winnable game. An easily winnable game, even.

On with the open game info:

Who? Atlanta Falcons @ St. Louis Rams, 1:00 p.m.

Where? Edward Jones Dome, St. Louis, Missouri

Weather? If it's snowing, you are not in the Edwards Jones Dome.

Fun Fact? St. Louis QBs Marc Bulger and Gus Frerotte have combined to throw 18 interceptions this year, splitting it down the middle at 9 each. While this is less factual than conjecture, I think Hall will get a pick or two here.

Injuries? Leftwich not likely to play, Weiner out for the season, Boley and Crumpler probable.

Odds? Rams favored by 3, Over/Under 40.0

Foe? Give Turf Show Times a read if you're at all interested about the Rams, because VanRam does a terrific job putting that site's analysis together.

Let's headbutt the Rams!
