The Rams say they won't bait Odell Beckham Jr. Coach Jeff Fisher said the Rams players "have been instructed not to hurt the football team." I don't believe it. That's the kind of 7-9 bullshit the Rams are synonymous with under Fisher and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

As for the Giants, Beckham says he's ready for the late hits given out by the Rams defensive backs. "You do expect it," Beckham said. "I always say stay ready so you don't have to get ready."

There's a history between the Rams and Beckham. A late hit by the Rams on Beckham started a brawl on the sidelines between the two teams back in 2014.

The Giants-Rams game starts at 9:30 a.m. ET, and you can catch it on the NFL Network or a few places online.
