**Odds as of 10/26/2021**

The Rams will head to Houston to play the Texans at NRG Stadium for a Week 8 matchup in the NFL. The LA Rams moved to 6-1 following a win against the Lions 28-19, whereas the Texans dropped to 1-6 after a loss to the Cardinals 31-5.

Looking at the latest NFL lines, we can see the Rams as heavy 14½-point favorites, with the point total set at 47½.

The Rams were barely able to hold onto the win against the Lions after Detroit pulled off two fake punts and an onside kick. Be that as it may, the defense wasn’t their usual self allowing a 62-yard reception touchdown and 415 yards of total offense. They were saved by a Jalen Ramsey interception in the red zone that sealed the victory.

The offense was outgained 415-374 and failed to run the ball effectively for the first time this season. Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford did show off their dominant connection, with Kupp reeling in 10 catches for 156 yards and two scores.

Stafford has feasted over his last two games, connecting for seven touchdowns with one interception, and should have another favorable matchup against a weak Texan secondary.

The Texans were beat down on Sunday, dropping their sixth consecutive game. The offense has been miserable, and that continued against the Cardinals, with Davis Mills throwing for just 135 yards through the air while the rushing attack somehow managed 42 yards. The 30th ranked offense has totaled eight points in their last two games.

Similarly, the defense got lit up again last week for 31 points and over 400 yards. To put it simply, the defense has been atrocious, allowing 29 points per game and almost 400 yards allowed to opponents. In their last five games, the Texans have been outscored 181-39 — and it won’t get any easier when the Rams come to town.
