Quick Take: Pack gets tricky road test vs. Rams

NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: The fact that these two teams are both 3-3 underscores how much competitive balance has affected the league. Yet it's safe to say they are not in the same place. The Green Bay Packers alerted the entire country to the fact that Aaron Rodgers is still silly good (six touchdown passes against the Texans). Meanwhile, the St. Louis Rams lost a tough one to the Miami Dolphins. If Rodgers is Rodgers, Green Bay could go up in a hurry.

What to watch: Two factors make me think, against conventional wisdom, that this will be closer than anticipated:

1) It's at home for the Rams in a loud atmosphere with a reengaged fan base.
2) The St. Louis secondary can cover one-on-one as well as any.

If the Packers are without Greg Jennings again, will Jordy Nelson and James Jones be able to torch Rams cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins? Seems doubtful.
