PFW executive editor and resident Packers expert Dan Arkush offers his prediction for the Week Six showdown vs. the Rams at Lambeau Field.

Does anybody anywhere think the Rams could pull off a miracle upset? Not me. But I do think they will show up and make a game out of it, at least early on.

At the end of the afternoon, though, I could see the Packers easily scoring more than 50 points against a St. Louis defense that has declined significantly since last season. This looks like a mismatch, pure and simple. I'm thinking rookie Randall Cobb might have a big day, both as a receiver and as a return specialist. I also could see a bit of a letdown by the Packers' defense in what I think willl be considerable garbage time.

Prediction: Packers 52, Rams 21
