Week 3: vs Los Angeles Rams
All RB vs LA
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Doug Martin had an MRI on Tuesday, and the word after the examination is that he'll miss at least three weeks due to his injured hamstring. That length of time means he did much more than 'tweak' his hamstring, although the team isn't revealing if he has a tear in the muscle (or not). In any case, Charles Sims will be the starter for Tampa Bay until further notice. Sims has 186/747/1 rushing and 105 targets for 76/787/5 receiving during his three years in the NFL - with only rookie Peyton Barber and veteran Jacquizz Rodgers behind him, Sims will likely carry the load for Tampa until Martin is able to return. Sims had 9/24/0 rushing and five targets for 3/4/0 receiving during the debacle in Arizona last week, while Rodgers managed 2/29/0 rushing with one target for zero receptions.
The Rams bounced back from their Week One humiliation by the 49ers to crush their NFC West rivals, the vaunted Seahawks, last week - Seattle had 24/67/0 rushing during the game. This is the sort of defensive performance most expected out of the Rams this season, rather than the 42/150/3 rushing that San Francisco hung around their collective necks in Week One. It's fair to say that the Rams have been up and down in this phase of the game so far.
This looks like a neutral matchup as the game is going down in Tampa's house this weekend.
