Through 3 Quarters

The point spread is against the Los Angeles Rams, but thus far the points are on their side. Sitting on a score of 24-17, they have looked like the better team out there today, but there's still one more quarter to play. QB Jared Goff has led the way so far for the Rams, as he has passed for three TDs and 326 yards on 42 attempts.

Los Angeles has been led by Goff, who so far has passed for three TDs and 326 yards on 42 attempts. Goff had some trouble finding his footing against the Seattle Seahawks last week, so this is a step in the right direction.

Los Angeles and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came into this contest with previous-game wins. We'll see if Los Angeles can maintain their lead to polish off another victory and cancel out Tampa Bay's positive energy.

What to Know

The Los Angeles Rams will square off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday at Raymond James Stadium. If the matchup is anything like Tampa Bay's 55-40 win from their previous meeting in September of last year, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

The Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks 23-16 last week. Los Angeles' RB Malcolm Brown filled up the stat sheet, punching in two rushing touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Tampa Bay ran circles around the Carolina Panthers last week, and the extra yardage (544 yards vs. 187 yards) paid off. Tampa Bay blew past Carolina 46-23. The Buccaneers can attribute much of their success to RB Ronald Jones, who rushed for one TD and 192 yards on 23 carries, and QB Tom Brady, who passed for three TDs and 341 yards on 39 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Brady's performance made up for a slower contest against the New Orleans Saints two weeks ago.

Special teams collected 16 points for Tampa Bay. K Ryan Succop delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.

The Rams are expected to lose this next one by 4.5. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

The wins brought Los Angeles up to 6-3 and the Buccaneers to 7-3. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Los Angeles comes into the game boasting the fewest touchdowns allowed in the league at 16.
