Rams, TUA, Christian Watson discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast


Rams. Have a little bye week in there. They're going to lose to Miami and tua gets a concussion and throws three picks in the fourth quarter. They still need two wins. Everybody is back on the bandwagon. And I continue to think that they are not very good. They've gotten everything they could have possibly needed the last three weeks to follow in their favor. And it has. And they haven't played great football. They barely beat the rams. That was like a that was a game for a while. It's crazy that they are where they're at because they aren't lights out. And Rogers has been eerily confident in these press conferences like, well, we just got one everything we needed to happen and it happened, and it did.

They do it at the Giants game giants tie the game 24 24 and it's like, wow, giants have all the momentum they're gonna win in OT. No, we're actually gonna win this one. That's the thing. At what point is it? Hey, there are 11 and O one one score games at what point is it like they're lucky, they get or at what point is it? They're pretty clutch. I think Justin Jefferson's numbers on these final game winning drives. They're insane. He's got like 11 catches for a 168 yards and three touchdowns on game winning drives alone.
