Not many people before the season would have picked the St. Louis Rams and Green Bay Packers to have identical 3-3 records heading into their Week 7 matchup in St. Louis, but here we are. The Rams can continue a surprising start and show the rest of the NFL the team is serious about contending with a win over the powerhouse Packers Sunday at noon.
As promising as St. Louis' 3-3 record is, the same mark is equally disappointing to Packers, who are coming off a blowout win over the Houston Texans. That win served as the Green Bay's statement to the rest of the league that the team is still a force to be reckoned with.
St. Louis gets to watch two of the three teams ahead of it in the NFC West Thursday night when the San Francisco 49ers host the Seattle Seahawks to open Week 7. Both teams are 4-2, as are the Arizona Cardinals, who are on the road to play the Minnesota Vikings Sunday at noon.
