PREDICTION: DENVER , LA RAMS

Oddsmakers currently have the DENVER listed as 7 point favorites versus the LA RAMS, while the game’s total is sitting at 52.

The Los Angeles Rams look to maintain their unbeaten record when they visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Los Angeles has been soaring behind a unit that leads the NFL in total offense (468.4 yards per game) and ranks third in scoring (34.6 points) as it faces a Denver squad that has lost three straight games.

The disappointing Broncos are struggling on defense – allowing 26.2 points and 395.8 yards per contest – and star linebacker Von Miller (four sacks) is pointing the finger at himself as a main cause of the unit’s issues. “I’ve got to get sacks,” Miller told reporters. “That’s what I do. I’ve got to get sacks. I’ve got 87.5 of them (in my career). I’ve played in games where I’ve gotten a lot of sacks and I’ve played in games where I haven’t got any sacks. I’m going to have a little bit of both going forward.” Denver allowed an astounding 512 yards in last week’s 34-16 loss to the New York Jets and figures to have trouble slowing down the ferocious Rams, who have yet to score fewer than 33 points. Los Angeles quarterback Jared Goff has completed 72.3 percent of his passes for an NFL-leading 1,727 yards to go with 12 touchdown passes against four interceptions.

ABOUT THE RAMS (5-0): Goff is seeking his fifth consecutive 300-yard performance as he has completed 76.7 percent of his passes during the four-game stretch. Running back Todd Gurley has rushed for an NFL-leading seven touchdowns and ranks second in the league with 645 yards from scrimmage (415 rushing, 230 receiving). Defensive tackles Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh have registered three sacks apiece while linebacker Cory Littleton has recorded a team-high 43 tackles for a unit that ranks sixth in scoring defense at 19.6 points per game.

ABOUT THE BRONCOS (2-3): Coach Vance Joseph insists his team isn’t going to panic as the Rams arrive while his club is mired in a tailspin. “We’re not going to fall for the noise,” Joseph told reporters. “We can’t surrender to this. That’s what the public thinks. We have no excuses. We’ve got to bounce back. We’ve got plenty of time, we’ve got a big game on Sunday, and I feel good about it.” New quarterback Case Keenum (1,365 yards) has thrown more interceptions (seven) than touchdowns (five) while the Miller-led defense ranks 30th against the run (139.6 yards).

EXTRA POINTS

1. The Rams have won each of the last three meetings.

2. Denver CB Adam Jones (hamstring) is looking like he will miss his second straight game after Joseph vowed on Thursday that he will play it safe in terms of the 35-year-old’s health.

3. Los Angeles WRs Brandin Cooks (452 yards) and Cooper Kupp (438) are both in concussion protocol but progressing to where they likely will be available on Sunday.

PREDICTION: Rams 37, Broncos 23
