After missing out on landing Matthew Stafford this offseason, the Indianapolis Colts will host him and the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2. The Rams showed off their offensive firepower last week, while the Colts barely made a spark. However, this NFL betting matchup could go either way in Week 2.

The Rams barely went into their playbook on Sunday Night Football, as they were in a completely different league than the Chicago Bears. Matthew Stafford is one step closer to proving all of his doubters wrong, and Sean McVay has to love it. There finally is a partnership there, instead of McVay babysitting Jared Goff in past seasons. Defensively, the Rams still have questions to be answered after some big offseason departures. However, this Rams offense looks good enough to carry the team during the weeks they need it.
As good as the Rams’ offense was, the opposite is true for the Colts. The offensive line was a wreck, but luckily Eric Fisher is ready to play this week. However, the Colts’ biggest issue all season long will be their lack of receiving weapons, especially with T.Y. Hilton out. Defensively, the Colts have playmakers at every level, but the offense needs to keep them off the field. It will be a tough NFL betting matchup again this week.
