The Seattle Seahawks come to Inglewood to take on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at SoFi Stadium. This NFC West battle carries high stakes, especially for a 5-3 Rams’ team that is looking to keep pace in a tough division. They are at home, nice and dug in coming off the bye, where they look to have worked out some of their issues that led to results like their ugly 28-17 loss to Miami in their last game. They host the Seahawks, who have some issues on their plate, as well, especially after a 44-34 loss to the Bills on Sunday that features a lot of defensive incompetence. Who can get back on the right track this week?
The Rams’ Range
The Rams started the season in sizzling fashion but have begun to cool down. A tepid win over a down Giants team led to a tough loss to a dilapidated 49ers’ team in a 24-16 loss. They bounced back with a nice home win over the Bears, but the loss to Miami was demoralizing, where mistakes spoiled a game they were controlling. What was a team playing well on both sides of the ball, looking sharp and precise on offense like they did in 2018, has started looking like the team we saw last season.
Jared Goff and all his weapons are pretty hit-and-miss, and we saw some troubling things in their loss to Miami. The miscues are one thing. And they were of a disastrous and game-changing nature against the Dolphins. The game suddenly flipped on its head with hardly any offense from the opponent. The big bad D-line of the Rams couldn’t even put a dent in their rookie QB, and it was really an underwhelming performance across all areas. For what it’s worth, at home this season, over the course of three games, they’ve allowed a combined 36 points. It looks to get a lot tougher this week against a familiar divisional foe, though one that hasn’t played in this stadium yet.

Bankability of the Rams
When pitted against the Seahawks, the lack of dependability really stands out more for the Rams. The Seahawks can vary from week to week but are generally within a similar framework, at least on offense. They’re at least in the same ballpark week in and week out. One week, the Rams will be slicing down the field, with Goff connecting to Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Gerald Everett, Josh Reynolds, and others, with big help from Darrell Henderson, Jr., Malcolm Brown, and the running game. The defense is stout in all areas, making a big impact in the pass-rush and with takeaways. Then with that in mind, you find what looks like a good spot, and they’re laboring on offense and making mistakes, with a “D” that isn’t really making much of an impact. Playing the kind of guessing game required to time a good Rams’ showing can be tricky.
By the same token, the Rams had a week off—a time for getting their mind right and addressing some play-calling snafus we’ve seen the last several weeks. They had some tough road tests, and the time may be helped rest some weary bodies. They are at home, which lets them have some extended time in their own element, with it being only their fourth home-spot heading into week 10. And in their own division, one could expect this urgency to resonate in this kind of setting—only their second divisional game of the season. Also, adding hope is how the Seattle defense has looked more often than not in the last handful of weeks. If the Rams’ offense can’t manage some success in this spot, it would really be a letdown.

Seattle Weaknesses Starting to Show?
For much of the season, we’ve seen Russell Wilson leading a vital offense, much of which is through the air. He has set records with 28 TD throws and a blistering start to the season. On Sunday, however, he had his second multi-interception game in the last three weeks, and most of his 390 yards were in an attempt to come from way behind, as the Bills had built up a big lead. They have a great pass-attack, led by their one-two punch at receiver with Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. But with some injuries, their run-game has been muted, and that O-line is starting to come apart at the seams a little bit.
It’s the other side of the ball that might be what keeps the Seahawks from doing big things this season. One may have thought that getting Jamal Adams back in there in the secondary would work, but they were shredded against Buffalo, and that’s basically what has been taking place all season. Their pass-rush is sometimes barely existent, and more often than not lately, the defense is just out there taking up space. Sometimes, the work of the offense helps camouflage the glaring inadequacies on this side of the ball, but in the last several weeks, the formula has been disrupted. As a result, it’s almost impossible not to notice how this Seattle defense has bottomed out—the worst seen in Seattle in years. Is facing a rested Rams’ team on the road the best medicine for that?
Take the Road Team
Another bad performance in this spot would lead to Seattle suddenly being in a bad position, a stark contrast from where they were a few short weeks ago—unbeaten and with everything looking rosy. I expect a better showing this week, even if Seattle is back on the road again for the second straight week. I expect a sharper performance from Wilson and more overall menace on offense, which can help a defense that is still a rightful concern for potential Seattle bettors. But maybe they can get a couple of big plays while the offense helps take over the game to some degree. I’m taking the Seahawks in this one.
