Spiegel & Goff Show’s Over/Unders For Bears-Rams

By Matt Spiegel–

(CBS) Here are the over/unders for the Bears-Rams game Sunday that we’ll be following on the Spiegel and Goff Show.

Bears offensive penalties: 4.5                               

As a team, there have been 20 penalties by the Bears’ offensive line. They’re tied for sixth in pre-snap penalties, with 14. They commit almost four offensive penalties per game, seventh in the league.

Now they’re on the road, in a dome, against a fierce defensive line.

Vladimir Ducasse false starts: 1.5

Vladimir Ducasse leads the offensive line with six individual penalties, which ties him for third in the league. D.J. Fluker and Anthony Castanzo are tied for first with eight.

Can Ducasse continue his impressive run?

Goff: over

Todd Gurley’s line: 22 carries, 131 yards

From the Washington Post:

No team has thrown fewer passes in the league this year or gained fewer passing yards than St. Louis. Incredibly, Nick Foles has failed to hit the 200-passing yards mark in any of his last seven games, despite throwing at least 20 passes in each contest; that makes him the first quarterback to meet those marks since Matt Hasselbeck in 2008.  Since entering the starting lineup in Week 4, the Rams rookie has averaged 22 carries a game for 131 yards, producing an exceptional 5.85 yards per carry average.

Spiegel: over on carries, yards
Goff: over on carries, under on yards

Jeremy Langford yards from scrimmage: 137.5

Langford had 142 total yards in an impressive performance at Sa Diego on Monday. Was that just a product of the Chargers’ woeful defense? Will the vaunted Rams mean he gets bottled up?

On the season, the Rams have allowed 682 rushing yards from running backs and 416 receiving yards. That’s a combined average of 137.

Spiegel: under
Goff: over

Bears total yardage: 323.5

The Rams are fifth-best in the league in yards allowed, at 323 per game.
