18. ST. LOUIS RAMS (4-7)

Last week: 16
Change: -2

Todd Gurley’s dominant spell has ended, and with it go the St. Louis Rams’ playoff hopes one would think. Gurley was held to just 19 yards against the Bengals, and was eventually taken away the ball as the Rams were forced to throw often.

Nick Foles had a day to forget, tossing three interceptions without a score. The Rams have now lost their last four games and enter the tough prospect of beating the Arizona Cardinals this week. Having said that, the Rams always seem to win at home inside the division.

I like where this team is headed. St. Louis has a strong defense and a potential future star at running back. Gurley can lead the team into the future, although they will need to get some better play at the quarterback position.

Next: No. 17
