Zack’s “Quick” Rundown: Oooh, another fun divisional matchup in a wildcard game! I’ve had trouble landing on a winner all week, but I think I’ve come to an answer. What is Kyler Murray good at? Scrambling. How do you stop a scrambler? Either set the edge or have great tracking linebackers. The Rams have the EDGE guys to rush, but have probably the worst set of pure LB’s in my model. I think that’s the key. I could see Kyler running all over the field tonight to get the W. I don’t love it, because I really like this Rams team now and I have to go against the model, but I just don’t see them stopping the slippery and shifty Kyler on the ground tonight. The Rams are also super short at Safety so keep that in mind.
