Because it appears they have the resolve to keep games close, I think the Rams can get up to 7-8 wins. To me, it all depends on the health of Sam Bradford. If they can keep him upright, he has the ability to move the chains – and the clock. A consistent running game will be important. I think the Rams’ defense is good enough to give some opposing offenses trouble. Within the division, the 49ers won’t get rattled, but the Seahawks and Cardinals are vulnerable – and they’ll see the Rams four times. Inexperienced QB’s also exist on the Dolphins and Vikings. Playing a December game in Buffalo will be a challenge, but the Rams might be able to steal a road game late in the season at Tampa Bay.

Now that we've seen that the Rams will be competitive, this question boils down to the team's schedule. The Rams don't catch any breaks playing the NFC North, but the AFC East should provide the team with some winnable games. That, paired with the fact that I'm still not a huge believer in the NFC West outside of the 49ers, leaves a lot of games as toss ups. It won't be many more than six - in fact, 7-9 might be a best-case scenario - but if things go the right way I think they can exceed that number.
