Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks Prediction

What have we learned from the NFL this week? The same thing we learn every week -- a double-digit dog like Detroit can beat the team that was the last to lose in Arizona. The Dolphins can go from 1-7 to 7-7 and give themselves a chance at the playoffs. The number one seed Patriots and Cardinals can lose, as well as the Bucs as a double-digit home favorite. So what we really learned is it stinks to be the one seed and teams who need to win haven't. Tonight, we have the second matchup of the year between the Rams and the Seahawks. 

The Rams have everything on the line, all Seattle has is a chance at a .500 season. Let's remember the first game, also known as the "finger game" because that is the game that changed the season for the Seahawks as they lost quarterback Russell Wilson and, of course, got outscored in the second half and lost the game.

T&Cs

How things have changed -- Robert Woods, who had 12 catches for 150 yards that night, is gone for the year. Darrell Henderson. who had 17-82-1, hasn't played since November. Either way, both the leading rusher and receiver are out for LA while the Seahawks have gotten back Rashaad Penny (16-137-2 last week), who is clearly much better than Alex Collins, who is out. Lots of changes going on and this is a division rivalry, which is always tight, as they have had five games within a touchdown in the last four years. 

So why are we taking the Seahawks tonight, you may ask? They are out of the playoffs. We won't guess who is in and out, we will go with what we see. With the Rams on a short week and coming off a win they had to have, there will be a little drawback to them dropping this game. Additionally, Seattle is playing their best football of the year (not saying much), winning two in a row and scoring 30+ points both times.

Rams head coach Sean McVay said not knowing who is playing affects your practice and your game plan. The Seattle defense has also played better -- going back, it's now eight games of giving up 23 or less. If Seattle wins this game, they have a couple of easy ones before ending with Arizona, so there's a chance at a winning season still and Coach Carroll hasn't had a losing one in a decade.  We feel DK Metcalf will explode and while that might not lead to an upset, we will certainly take the generous touchdown spread in this one.

We are predicting a three point game. Take the Hawks tonight to swoop in under the number.
