This edition of Sunday Night Football should be an exciting one as we get to see two studded teams face off.

The Los Angeles Rams look to continue their hot start after victories over the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints. Three teams in the NFC West are 2-0, and the playoff race figures to be a close one all season long. Todd Gurley has yet to hit 100 yards, but the Rams are cautious about their superstar running back. Malcolm Brown has — to the dismay of many Gurley fantasy owners — been receiving a hefty workload as well in order to keep Gurley fresh. The Rams passing attack, meanwhile, is as deadly as ever, boasting an incredible trio of receivers in Brandon Cooks, Cooper Kupp, and Robert Woods.

The Cleveland Browns will be in their second-consecutive prime time match. After a disappointing opener against the Tennessee Titans, the Browns rebounded with a sound dismantling of the ill-fated New York Jets. The Baker Mayfield to Odell Beckham Jr. connection is as dangerous as expected, with the receiver going off for 161 yards against New York.

The Browns face a much tougher defense this week against Aaron Donald and company, but it should nonetheless be a game to watch.
