Last Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks got walloped by the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. On Thursday night, they have the chance to bounce back against a very bad NFL team that just fired its coach eight days after announcing that he had signed a contract extension.
In other words, signs should point to Seattle trouncing the Los Angeles Rams tonight, but recent history suggests otherwise. For some reason, the Rams have had the Seahawks’ number recently, winning each of the last three games between these two teams and four of the last five. That stretch includes a thrilling 9-3 victory at the LA Coliseum in week two of this season.
However, this game is in Seattle, where the Seahawks have been impressive - their home record is 6-0 this season and they average 28.7 points per game there. By contrast, on the road they are 2-4-1, have averaged just 14.6 points per game, and have four games with 10 or fewer points.
Here are the details on tonight’s game.
Los Angeles Rams (4-9) vs. Seattle Seahawks (8-4-1)
