We can assume the schedule makers to begin the season had this one circled for a heavyweight bout when they penciled it in, but it’s not looking so pretty now. Nonetheless, tonight features the Los Angeles Rams (4-9) heading to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers (5-8).
More important than the game is obviously the Baltimore Beatdown Pick ‘Em standings.
- Kyle Barber: 138-74
- Frank Platko: 135-81

With one game remaining in Week 15, the readers have broken into the Top 3. What a time.
