The Hawks should edge their live Sky Sports Sunday night clash in Los Angeles.
Seattle Seahawks at LA Rams - Sunday 21:05, Sky Sports 2
Oh dear. The Rams first game since 1994 as the Los Angeles Rams ended up in an embarrassing 28-0 defeat in San Francisco last week to the 49ers.
The Niners were expected to be fighting with the Browns this year for the title of worst team in the NFL so to lose so devastatingly without even scoring a point must have hurt head coach Jeff Fisher and his men.
The Seattle Seahawks win a lot of games but most of them aren't very pretty and that was the case again in week one. After three quarters against the Dolphins they led only 6-3 and ended up running out 12-10 winners.
Fisher is clinging on to his job in LA but in the last four games against the Seahawks his Rams have won three and lost one. It's one of those strange things the NFL throws up at times and we've also seen many times before how a team can bounce back from a crushing defeat to cause an upset the week after.
That said how can anyone trust starting-by-default Rams QB Case Keenum to do anything against this Seahawks defense. The Hawks should win but expect it to be closer than last week, a Seattle winning margin of 7-12 is the play.
