Saints vs. Rams TNF Thread: Which team’s making the playoffs?

Which team is a phony and which is for real?

NFL: Washington Commanders at Los Angeles Rams Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

After last week’s 63-21 debacle, what’s next for Thursday Night Football?

Today, we get a matchup between potential playoff teams in the New Orleans Saints, who are tied for first in the NFC South, and the Los Angeles Rams, who hold possession of the NFC’s No. 7 seed due to a tiebreaker.

The Saints are on a two-game winning streak, albeit those victories are over the Panthers and Giants at home.

Meanwhile, the Rams have won four of their last five after an ugly start, propelling themselves firmly into the playoff discussion.

With a win, New Orleans would place themselves in good shape ahead of a Week 17 matchup on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On the other hand, a Rams win would put them at 8-7 with the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers left on their schedule.

The total on this game is 45 at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the Rams favored by 4 points. I’ll take the Rams to win and cover the spread.
