Sunday NFL Football Analysis: While the Chicago Bears have done well with a backup quarterback starting under center, the St. Louis Rams hope their second string quarterback can keep the teams momentum moving forward with a second straight win coming out of their bye week.  Chicago back up quarterback Josh McCown looks to go 3-0 as a starter for the Bears after leading them to an overtime win against Baltimore last weekend.  While McCown can keep the offense moving, averaging over 28 points per game and ranked third in the league, the defense is very injury ravaged.  Lance Briggs continues to miss games with a shoulder, corner Charles Tillman is out as are Henry Melton and D.J. Williams.  Chicago gives up an average of 134 yards per game on the ground and that could be a problem against a Rams run game that has found its way in its last few games.  Since rookie Zac Stacy took over the primary back duties he has 537 yards in his last two games.  If Chicago can contain Stacy they will have a better chance of getting to QB Kellen Clemens, who is coming off his first victory in three starts since taking over for Sam Bradford.  Last week’s victory against the Colts was easily the best win of his career.  Clemens also seems to have some kind of connection with rookie WR Tavon Austin who had 98 yards and a touchdown against Indianapolis before the bye.  He is one of the fastest players in the NFL and Bradford and Austin were never on the same page before his injury, Austin has big play making ability and he should get the ball more.  A key factor in this game is St. Louis entering this contest off a big win and a bye week to prepare, while the injury riddled Bears played an overtime that was delayed for two hours and they had to travel this week.  The Rams will be more fresh and more prepared in a game that will be decided in the fourth quarter.

San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs Game Prediction: 24-13 St. Louis Rams

What to expect in this NFL Football match up: The Rams rushing attack will look very good and they will stick with it from start to finish, keeping the Chicago offense off the field and wearing them down over the course of the game.  If Chicago gets into the end zone against the Rams defense it will be early in the game as the Rams defensive front seven continues to get pressure on McCown and forces turnovers and penalties to keep Chicago from keeping this game close.
