Times have certainly changed for the New York Jets and the St. Louis Rams over the course of the last few years. The last time these two teams met, New York came up with a 47-3 victory. The Rams mustered just 200 total yards of offense, while RB Thomas Jones and RB Leon Washington had that many yards on the ground by themselves. These two teams will meet for the first time since that point on Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome, a place where the Jets clearly are not looking forward to going.
This is going to be the first game that the Jets have played in a dome since beating the Indianapolis Colts in the playoffs at Lucas Oil Stadium in the 2011 playoffs. This is a game in the NFC against a domed team though, and there are five clubs that fit that mold, the Rams, New Orleans Saints, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, and Atlanta Falcons. Against those teams on the road over the course of the last four years, QB Mark Sanchez has played two games, and he has led New York to just a 1-1 SU and 0-2 ATS record.
What’s worse is the history for the Jets here in the Gateway to the West. The Rams are actually 7-0 SU and ATS in this series dating back to 1986 when they were playing in Los Angeles against these Jets, and that includes going 2-0 SU and ATS at the Edward Jones Dome. Both games were won outright in spite of the fact that St. Louis was an underdog in both affairs by a field goal. The Jets were outgained in those games by an average of 148.5 yards per game.
The NFL odds in Week 11 feature the Rams favored by 3 ½-points over the hapless Jets.
