Oddsmakers are expecting the Los Angeles Rams to run right over the collapsing Denver Broncos on the road in Week 6.

The Denver Broncos (2-3) have lost three-straight games and will not host the undefeated Los Angeles Rams (5-0) in Week 6 just seven days after giving up an incredible 324 rushing yards to the New York Jets. Heading into this game, the line stands at just seven points in favor of the Rams, but it feels like it should be much higher.

Considering the utter collapse of defensive play-calling and scheme in Denver and the scheme-heavy creativity of the Rams, this should not be a game that even comes close to being in doubt for the Super Bowl contender in Los Angeles. The Broncos have proven to have poor coaching and poor scheme, which has been a recipe for disaster the last two seasons.

Even with the Rams being as good as they are, they have a history of playing the Broncos tough in Denver with a 3-3 mark all-time in the Mile High City. The Broncos are 5-8 all-time regardless of where they play, but never more did they need a win at a given point during a regular season than they need one this week against the Rams.

Kickoff is set for 2:05 p.m. Mile High time at Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. The game will be called by Dick Stockton (play-by-play), Mark Schlereth (analyst), and Jennifer Hale (sideline reporting).
