New England leads the AFC East despite several last-minute losses and often playing to the level of opponents with inferior talent. Quarterback Tom Brady and receiver Wes Welker, the NFL leader with 688 receiving yards, travel to London to face a Rams’ defense ranked 10th in total yards allowed per game. St. Louis is scoring just 18.6 points per game, which ranks 26th in the league. They should improve that output against the NFL’s 29th-ranked pass defense.

The last time the Patriots played in London in 2009 they defeated Tampa Bay, 35-7 in front of over 80,000 fans.

The Patriots and Rams have played 10 regular-season games with each team winning five times. New England scored one of the greatest victories in franchise history when it defeated the favored Rams for the NFL championship on Feb. 3, 2002 in Super Bowl XXXVI. That victory followed a tight game in the 2001 regular season that ended in a 24-17 St. Louis victory.

DB Malcolm Williams has been promoted off the practice squad to the 53-man roster for Sunday’s game. He fills the roster spot that opened up when Ras-I Dowling (thigh) was placed on injured reserve.

7 total players are out for the game, including starters, Tight End Aaron Hernandez (ankle) and Safety Patrick Chung (shoulder). Also not making the trip to London:
RB Brandon Bolden (knee)
S Steve Gregory (hip)
DE Trevor Scott (hamstring)
LB Tracy White (foot)
