Brace yourselves, mostly boring football is on the horizon.

Just three games are on deck for late kickoff in Week 8, and there’s really only one game you should watch. Here’s the matchups, and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Aaron Rodgers vs. Jared Goff gets the big spotlight, and if you actually live in the market of the other teams playing, you won’t be seeing it.

The Rams, who are big Super Bowl favorites after being undefeated through the first seven weeks, take on a Packers squad fresh off their bye week. Green Bay has just looked really flat, but are still somehow 2nd in the NFC North. Believe it or not, this all-time series is tied at 46-46-2, with the Packers winning five straight between 2007-2015. The last time the Rams won came in 2006, when Marc Bulger, Steven Jackson, and Jeff Wilkins beat out Brett Favre and company.
