On the road: Rams' prospects outside division


Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The premise: The NFL will not release dates and times for 2009 regular-season games until 7 p.m. ET, but we can still size up opponents from unexplored angles.

Previously: Cardinals, 49ers, Seahawks

I'll continue by looking at how the Rams might fare in their non-division road games.

The Rams won't catch the Redskins by surprise in 2009 after shocking them at FedEx Field last season. Winning in Tennessee and Chicago also figures to be tough for St. Louis, but only two of the Rams' non-division road opponents posted winning records at home last season.

The Titans, Bears, Redskins, Jaguars and Lions were a combined 19-21 at home last season. The Seahawks' and 49ers' non-division road opponents were 28-12. The record was 22-18 for the Cardinals' non-division road opponents.
