Rams, Seahawks Meet In De Facto NFC West Title Game

Yes, there are still three weeks left in the season. Yes, the winner of Sunday’s game between the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks does not automatically clinch the NFC West crown. But that does not mean that this game is not the most important of the season for both teams. The Rams currently hold a one-game lead in the division but the Seahawks already hold a victory over LA earlier this season, which means the winner this Sunday is in the driver’s seat in the NFC West.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 9 of the past 11 games between the Rams and Seahawks.
  • The Seahawks are 13-1 SU in their last 14 games after a loss.
  • The Rams have not lost back-to-back games once this season.

Playing in Seattle has been kryptonite for the Rams for more than a decade, as the team has gone 1-11 SU and 3-9 ATS in its last 12 games in the Emerald City. That being said, the Rams are 5-1 on the road this season while the Seahawks are 4-2 at CenturyLink Field.

The Rams struggled mightily against the Seahawks when they first met this year, as LA scored just 10 points. Quarterback Jared Goff specifically had issues – it is the only game all season in which the sophomore signal-caller threw multiple interceptions. However, the Seahawks secondary has had a rash of injury issues since then and will field several new faces for Goff and head coach Sean McVay to attack.

It might not always be pretty but the Seahawks are still winning football games. And though the taped-together defense is doing the job admirably – the Seahawks are eighth in points allowed – Seattle is winning football games thanks to Russell Wilson. The quarterback and MVP contender has been a one-man show, accounting for 32 of the team’s 33 offensive touchdowns this season.
