The Rams resolve will be tested in the next three weeks.
They face the Steelers at home in Week 3, then hit the road for back-to-back games against the Cardinals and the Packers.
There's no question the defense will have its work cut out facing Ben Roethlisberger, Carson Palmer and Aaron Rodgers in three straight weeks.
"We know where we've got to work and we'll get that done," head coach Jeff Fisher said, via ESPN.
The offense will also have to come together -- and fast.
Whether or not the team is thinking about it, a 1-4 start heading into their bye week isn't out of the question.
The Rams will know soon enough whether this 2015 season could be headed in either direction.
