I’m headed for the Arch. Sunday, the undefeated (5-0) Colts will take on the winless (0-6) Rams in St. Louis. I would say the Colts have received a bonus bye week. But the line in the NFL is “any given Sunday”, meaning any team can beat any other team. That’s usually true in a league known for parity. But this year is the exception. There are several really good teams, and the Colts might be the best. There are several really bad teams in the NFL right now, and the Rams are the worst.
The Colts have won 14 regular season games in a row. That’s impressive. But the Rams current losing streak is more impressive. St. Louis has lost 16 games in a row. The Colts can set another franchise record with their 8th consecutive road win. Then comes three straight home games. The Colts are sitting pretty.
The only meaningless statistic that favors the Rams is that the Colts have never won at the Edwards Jones Dome. They’ve only played there once, in 2001, when the Greatest Show on Turf was lighting up the scoreboard and whipped the Colts, 42-17. The cities are only four hours apart. But remarkably, the Colts have only played in St. Louis three previous times (the other two were against the Cardinals at Busch Stadium).
