The Rams will face difficult weather conditions against the Broncos
However, it will be a contest that will test both teams physically with the weather as it’s expected to be snow during the game on Sunday afternoon, according to Andrew Siciliano of The NFL Network.

This will be a huge challenge for the Rams going on the road facing a formidable defense that features some Pro Bowl talent headlined by outside linebacker Von Miller, which will be made a bit tougher with the element of snow on top of playing in a place of higher elevation in Denver. All this could alter their game plan to be more suitable to be effective in that environment that may provide the most difficult setting to play in to begin this year.
Los Angeles has proven through the first five weeks that they are up for any challenge that was the case last week on the road against the Seattle Seahawks. It was a contest that could have easily gone the other way, but the Rams held firm pushing through their defensive issues and tightening up in the fourth quarter to pull out a 33-31 win in the raucous environment at CenturyLink Field. There has been a strong mental fortitude that the team how shown to possess that could be put to the test against a formidable opponent.
The Rams will have the task of being able to translate their offensive success in that weathered environment while a huge part of the task will lie on their defense stopping the Broncos’ second-ranked rushing attack. Los Angeles will likely continue to lean on their potent offense to lead the way. All of this could make an entertaining tilt on Sunday afternoon.
