Seahawks -15, total 38.5
Rams vs. Seahawks
The Rams are in total disarray after firing head coach Jeff Fisher on Monday. It was a move long, long overdue as Fisher has been an awful head coach for most of the past decade. Specials teams coach John Fassel wil be coaching the Rams for this game. Los Angeles has a terrible offense even though they have a great running back in Todd Gurley. The Rams are scoring just 14.9 points per game, worst in the NFL. The Los Angeles defense has started to wear down as the Rams are allowing 23.4 points per game.
The Rams have a rookie quarterback in Jared Goff who is 0-4 this season with four TDs and five interceptions.
Seattle is going to win the NFC West but they don’t look like a Super Bowl contender. They were blown out last week in Green Bay, losing 38-10. The offense with Russell Wilson is erratic while the defense without Earl Thomas simply is not the same. The Seahawks are scoring only 21.1 points per game and four times this season they have scored 10 points or less. Seattle is allowing just under 18 points per contest.
The Seahawks lead the all-time series 21-15 but they have struggled recently against the Rams losing four of the last five including three straight. The Rams won 9-3 at home earlier this season.
