2 units on St. Louis PICK () (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
There is no argument that no team looked worse than St. Louis last week. They were thrashed on the scoreboard by the hapless Indianapolis Colts 38-3. The Colts scored early and often on their way to 430 total yards for the game, while the Rams offense made it to the red-zone just one time all game. That was then, and this is now. Remember that last year the Jaguars were beaten in Week 1 at New England by the same 35-point margin, and went out and won in Week 2. This is a much different situation. The Colts were at home with a lot of juice with their first round QB selection Andrew Luck on display, and he didn't disappoint. The Chiefs are an entire different story. Despite the win, the Chiefs are now 7-26 straight up in their last 33 NFL exhibition games. While the mentor on the sidelines has changed during that period, the results have not. Don’t forget that Romeo Crennel was 0-4 in the preseason in his last year on the sidelines in Cleveland and 9-19 overall. Play on St. Louis.
