First-place in the NFC West is on the line, as the 8-5 Seattle Seahawks host the 9-4 Los Angeles Rams. Seattle defeated the Rams 16-10 in Los Angeles, so a win at home would see them take top spot because of the head-to-head tiebreaker. Victory for Los Angeles would almost certainly condemn the Seahawks to a season without playoff football.
Both teams are coming off devastating defeats, as the Rams dropped a 43-35 thriller to the Philadelphia Eagles, while the Seahawks were unable to rally from a 17-point deficit, instead coming up on the wrong end of a 30-24 road scoreline at the Jacksonville Jaguars. While the Rams are mostly healthy, the Seahawks are without linebacker K.J. Wright, defensive tackle Nazair Jones, and potentially Defensive Player of the Year candidate Bobby Wagner. We already know the secondary is missing Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman, so the defense will have a tough task ahead of them against the vaunted Rams offense. Meanwhile, Seattle’s offense has repeatedly struggled against the Rams defense over the past few years, they cannot afford to have that happen again on Sunday, or else their season is all but over.
