Sam Bradford is healthy, the defense is bordering on elite and the Rams can finally run the ball again. Perhaps the main thing keeping the Rams out of the playoffs at this point is just themselves. Or the fact that they play in the rigid NFC West.
This could easily be the year it all comes together, but the St. Louis Rams schedule for the 2014 season won’t be doing them any favors. Not only will they need to find a way to finish out well in their own division, but they also take on the AFC West, where the Broncos, Chiefs and Chargers should all present tough matchups. St. Louis also gets the Cowboys and Eagles this year, potentially further complicating their bid for a playoff spot. The route clearly isn’t ideal, but if Bradford can stay healthy and raise his play, the Rams could have a shot at taking a step up in 2014.
