In theory Torry Holt Jersey , picking the weekly winners of NFL games should be a pretty simple task.y injuries, having a superstar player that just can’t be stopped, or simply having a more well-rounded football team than the opponent, anticipating a weekly check from your buddy’s pick‘em league should be no sweat. If only it were that easy. Sometimes the winless Buffalo Bills, having given up 78 points in the first two games of the season, roll into Minnesota and smack the Vikings in the mouth and walk away 27-6 victors. Say goodbye to your Survivor pool! But let’s face it, nobody was picking the Bills to win that game. And more often than not, you should expect the better team(s) to win. If you’d picked the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Chicago Bears to win every single game in 2018, you would’ve only been wrong four times. Not too shabby. If you’d pick the Rams or Saints, you would’ve only picked incorrectly thrice. So yeah, sometimes you just keep picking the hot teams, and sure, in spots you take a tough opponent. Going 16-0 isn’t very likely, after all.But that’s just not CBS Sports’ analyst Jason La Canfora’s style. He goes against the grain. He blazes the trail. He picks against the Rams lot. NFL Pickwatch, in the event you haven’t visited, compiles weekly picks from NFL experts from various media outlets – NFL Network, ESPN, CBS Sports http://www.theramslockerroom.com/authentic-jack-youngblood-jersey , NBC Sports, Pro Football Focus, Bleacher Report, SB Nation, and many others. To be fair, JLC predicted the Rams would get off to a hot 5-1 startough he figured the Rams single loss in the first six weeks to come at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals, who won less games than any other NFL team and will be picking first overall this April. But then something happened. Jason started picking against the Rams and it was as if, despite the continued success, he couldn’t look back. La Canfora’s Weekly Picks 2018Opponent% Experts Picking RamsLa Canfora PickResultOpponent% Experts Picking RamsLa Canfora PickResultFollowing the Rams 5-1 start, La Canfora picked the Rams to lose seven straight. And he’s only picked the Rams TWICE since Week 6 – meaning he’s gone 2-10 in that span. Sure, he picked the Rams to beat the Eagles and even pegged them over the Cowboys in the divisional round – but that comes as a bit of a surprise considering he predicted them to lose to those same 3-13 Cardinals in Week 16. Whatgives? Did La Canfora genuinely believe – with the opportunity to secure a first round bye on the line – that the 4-12 San Francisco 49ers, decimated by injury, were going to stop the Rams鈥t home? LA put 48 points in that game, by the way. Does JLC hate the Rams? Or is he just a really poor prognosticator?As you can see from the table above, La Canfora is picking the Patriots to win the Super Bowl. He’s not alone in that, and it appears as though the vast majority of experts (though there are many that have yet to submit their picks yet) will be going with the 5-time Super Bowl Champs. No biggie. As I said just prior to the Rams taking on the Saints, embrace the underdog role. Let them all pick the Patriots. Spend the rest of your week listening to them blabber about experience vs. inexperience, or whatever it is they’re talking about. Because none of the noise really matters, and the Rams are 60 minutes away from possibly hoisting a Lombardi. So lock in that Patriots’ pick JLC, because it’ll be your last of the 2018-2019 season. Speaking of which, congrats on finishing 117th (dead last) among all experts Womens Austin Blythe Jersey , having gotten 52.3% of this season’s picks correct. I suppose that answers the poor prognosticator question. Todd Gurley is touted as an MVP contender. Jared Goff ranks among the top QBs in yardage and TD throws. Sean McVay already owns one NFL Coach of the Year award.Here are some lesser-known names that are also a big part of why the Los Angeles Rams are 8-0 this season: Andrew Whitworth, Rodger Saffold, John Sullivan, Austin Blythe and Rob Havenstein.They are the five guys who are opening running lanes for Gurley, do their best to keep Goff's jersey clean, make McVay's play designs work — and were an overwhelming pick as the NFL's top offensive line in voting by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press.The Rams got eight first-place votes and finished with a total of 92 of a possible 100 points in balloting released Friday."It's no coincidence that arguably the NFL's best and most dynamic offense has the league's top offensive line leading the way, with big boys up front such as left tackle Andrew Whitworth and left guard Rodger Saffold," New York-based AP voter Dennis Waszak Jr. said.The New Orleans Saints finished second with 76 points, followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers with 73. Then there was a big drop-off, with the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs tied for fourth with 47.The Steelers and Eagles each received one of the remaining first-place votes.A total of 20 teams were named on at least one ballot. The Rams, Saints and Steelers were the only offensive lines that appeared on every ballot.The AP voters looked at each line as a unit.Whitworth, a first-team All-Pro pick last season, has "been the anchor" for the Rams up front, said AP voter Rob Maaddi, who is based in Philadelphia.Saffold made the All-Pro second team. Otherwise, LA's linemen might not necessarily be among the highest-rated at their positions, but they work together so well."I believe that it's a case where these guys understand what we're trying to get done. ... They have a better understanding of what's happening, and where the quarterback is in pass-protection downs, and what the runner's intent is in the running game," Rams offensive line coach Aaron Kromer said. "I think when everybody does that, then you have a chance to — whoever's grading — grade out better than you think."One key has been continuity.The Rams employed the same starting five for 15 games last season — including Whitworth at left tackle Jared Goff Jersey , Saffold at left guard, Sullivan at center, and Havenstein at right tackle — before resting everybody in Week 17. And, plugging in Blythe for the suspended Jamon Brown at right guard to begin this season, they have used the same starting O-line in every game so far.Under McVay's guidance, the team currently ranks second in points per game at 33, second in yards per game at 442.6 and first in rushing yards at 150.9.Gurley's excellence helps, of course. But he also has had help from Whitworth and Co. along the way to leading the NFL in rushing with 800 yards and in touchdowns with 15, 11 on the ground.The Saints' line has the benefit of playing in front of some stars, too."Yes, Drew Brees makes everyone around him better," Nashville-based voter Teresa M. Walker said. "But the Saints have allowed both a league-low nine sacks and the fewest quarterback hits with 22. They also have an NFL-high 12 TDs rushing."And the best argument for rating the Steelers' line among the elite might very well be noting who has not been in uniform for them this season: running back Le'Veon Bell.While he has been sitting out, backup James Conner has been superb, topping AFC runners with 599 yards and scoring nine touchdowns, taking advantage of space created by the likes of David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey.As Maaddi explained: "They've helped James Conner put up Le'Veon Bell numbers. Enough said."The rankings:1. Rams2. Saints3. Steelers4. (tie) Eagles4. (tie) Chiefs6. Patriots7. Chargers8. Panthers9. Cowboys10.
