The time for hesitation’s through. No time to wallow in the mire.
Rams 38, Bengals 34
Cincy is really good. No kidding good. The Bengals are not “hot.” They’re not lucky. They’re not some sappy underdog story. They’re good. And they’re set up to be good for the foreseeable future.
But, as they say, for the Rams the future is now. LA is “all-in,” and the Rams’ every move since before the start of the season has reflected a “right here, right now” mindset.
Yes, I can see a scenario in which Sean McVay outsmarts himself. Because I’ve seen it before.
No, I would not be shocked to see Stafford throw two late picks to lose the farm. I’ve seen it before.
But I wouldn’t be surprised if he winds up announcing he’s going to Disney World, either. In fact, I think that’s more likely.
I also have just a seat-of-the-pants inkling that it will be a big day for OBJ as well as the Bengals do everything they can to keep Kupp from beating them.
Von Miller will get a strip-sack that will lead to a huge momentum change.
Joe Mixon will torment the Rams for three quarters. And Tee Higgins will look like Drew Pearson on third downs. Burrow will shine, and make us eager for training camp.
It will turn late. But it will turn.
Rams 38 Bengals 34. This is nacho granddaddy’s Super Bowl.
