The Los Angeles Rams' final preseason game will be the last opportunity for their third and fourth string players to state their last case to make the team. None of the Rams' starters are expected to take the field against the Broncos. Head coach Sean McVay and his coaching staff have been apprehensive in fielding the Rams' starters in the preseason due to a lack of depth on the roster.


Key Player - Sony Michel

In one of the most surprising trades of the off-season, the Los Angeles Rams acquired Sony Michel from the New England Patriots for two conditional draft picks.

The Rams were thin at running back due to Cam Akers' season-ending injury. Things got worse when Darrell Henderson was also sidelined. All eyes will be on Sony Michel, who will handle most of the carries on his Rams debut.

The Denver Broncos have had plenty of success this preseason as they continue showcasing their new offense. Even though Week 1 is fast approaching, most Broncos starters will play against the Rams. Some extra practice time will do well for the budding playoff hopefuls.

Teddy Bridgewater was announced as the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos. That came as a blow to Drew Lock, who thought he had done enough to earn the starting job.

"Obviously, it's disappointing," Lock said when asked about being relegated to a backup role. Bridgewater will be the starting quarterback for a fourth different team, and the pressure is on him to lead this young team to the playoffs.

Even though Teddy Bridgewater has been named as the starting quarterback, there is still one preseason game to be had. Expect Drew Lock to get some significant playtime. This could be Lock's chance to change the minds of the coaches. It's not likely that Coach Fangio will change his mind so readily, but maybe Lock does enough to throw his name back into the starter conversations.


Rams vs. Broncos Prediction

With the Rams resting their starters, the Broncos will let their offense go wild again. Lock will outplay Bridgewater, throwing for 200 yards and three touchdowns. The Broncos continue their dominance in the preseason. 35-17 Broncos over the Rams.
