The Los Angeles Rams have had an uphill battle to get back to their former glory of winning the Super Bowl a few seasons ago. After a down season in 2022, the Rams are in the thick of the NFC Wild Card race heading into Week 14. Los Angeles is riding a three-game winning streak, coming off a 36-19 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 13. With five games to go and sitting at 6-6, we’ll go over which teams Rams fans should be rooting for in Week 14.

49ers vs. Seahawks

It’ll be tough but the Rams need the 49ers to take care of business vs. the Seattle Seahawks this week. The Seahawks are tied with the Rams at 6-6 entering Week 14 and Los Angeles has the H2H tiebreaker. Luckily for the Rams, the Seahawks are heavy underdogs on the road at +11 on the spread. That line seems a bit high but if all everything plays out, the 49ers should help out their NFC West division rivals.

Vikings vs. Raiders

The Raiders and Vikings come off their bye weeks in a matchup that has some playoff implications. Minnesota sits in the 6-seed in the NFC at 6-6, one of four teams tied at that record (Packers, Seahawks, Rams). The Vikings are favored in the matchup on the road and also get star WR Justin Jefferson back from injured reserve this week. Still, the Raiders have played better since moving on from head coach Josh McDaniels, having won two of the past four games. The Vikings are 3-point favorites on the spread.

Giants vs. Packers

The Green Bay Packers are the 7-seed entering Week 14 and the Rams need Green Bay to lose more than anything. The Packers have the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Rams after beating them earlier in the season. The Giants and Packers play on Monday Night Football and New York is expected to start QB Tommy DeVito again. The Packers are 6.5-point favorites on the road against the Giants in Week 14.
