Green Bay Packers at Los Angeles Rams

According to Todd Dewey, a sports betting reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Gurley's decision swung $1 million in bets across Vegas from those who bet on Rams cover to those who bet on Packers cover.

As if his late game blunder wasn't bad enough, it turns out Montgomery was going against the coaches' wishes by taking the ball out of the end zone.

Despite a few close calls over the first two months of the regular season, the Los Angeles Rams knew Sunday's meeting with the Green Bay Packers had the potential to be their toughest challenge to date, and it was.

Montgomery then coughed up his return, and Wilson pounced on the ball.

On a crucial third-and-6, Gurley went down at the 4-yard line to ice the game and clinch the victory despite having a clear path to the end zone. As if his two rushes for six yards and one catch for two yards was enough to stay in the game over a player like Aaron Jones.

This matchup has game of the week written all over it.

Both teams had loud contingents of fans at the Coliseum, where Green Bay won the first Super Bowl in 1967. Gurley leads the NFL with 15 touchdowns, and he became the fourth player in league history to score at least 15 touchdowns in the first eight games of a season, joining Jim Brown (17 in 1958) and Priest Holmes (15 in 2002 and 2004).

Sam Shields made several big plays for LA against his former team.

As for the Texans, it's fantastic to think how back in September, this team seemed like a lost cause following a 0-3 start before going on to win their next five games, including their most recent victory over the Miami Dolphins.
