TV: FOX (Chris Myers, Trent Green)
SERIES: 89th meeting. Rams lead, 45-41-2. The teams have alternated victories in the last four games, with Green Bay winning the most recent, 33-14 in St. Louis in 2007. KEYS TO THE GAME: The Rams need to find a way to contain the Packers' improved pass rush long enough for QB Marc Bulger to take vertical shots against Green Bay's secondary that will be minus SS Atari Bigby and possibly FS Nick Collins. The primary concern is RT Adam Goldberg starting in place on injured rookie Jason Smith and working against DE Johnny Jolly and OLB Aaron Kampman. The secondary concern is a young receiving crew as St. Louis ranks 31st with just 144.5 passing yards per game. Pass protection is also a key for Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who has been sacked a league-high 10 times. But the Rams have just one sack on the season and don't have the secondary depth to contain WRs Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, James Jones and Jordy Nelson. FAST FACTS: Jennings averages 32 yards on his 25 career touchdowns. ... The Rams have a 12-game losing streak.
