LA: Brr, it’s cold in here

Basketball

QB sitch: The million-dollar question is whether Jared Goff or John Wolford will start at QB. Neither of them are exactly healthy, so either way we’re nervous. Can there be a third QB on standby, just in case? Last week was too close for comfort.

On the other side of the ball: It’s the clash of the Titans (well, not the ones from Tennessee): the Rams’ No. 1 defense against the Packers’ No. 1 offense. All eyes will be on the hotly anticipated matchup between Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Packer Davante Adams, one of the top wide receivers in the league. Pass the guac.

  • Up front, two-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald should be ready to play and turn his competitors, namely Packers QB and MVP favorite Aaron Rodgers, into Swiss Wisconsin cheese.

Bundle up: Lastly, we’re hoping the boys are ready for the chilly weather, because the forecast for game day is literally freezing. Not our idea of a gouda time.
