The Hawks have looked sensational during a five game winning streak but must get by a Rams team that has beaten them once already this year.

Can St. Louis ruin Seattle’s home field aspirations or will the Rams be just another victim along Seattle’s march toward another possible championship? Let’s break it down.


Remember when the St. Louis Rams posted back-to-back shutouts and scored 76 points over that span in games against the Raiders and Redskins? It’s hard to believe that it was only four weeks ago! Since that time the Rams have fallen back to earth and have lost consecutive games – to the shorthanded Cardinals and the unflattering Giants.

Not a whole lot has gone right for St. Louis as of late – the defense looked OK two games back against the Cardinals but got exposed by Eli Manning and the Giants last week while Shaun Hill and the offense hasn’t looked all that dangerous at all.

The Rams offense is averaging 21.2 points and 319.3 yards per game and – QB Shaun Hill has 8 touchdowns and 5 interceptions, Tre Mason has rushed for 737 yards and four touchdowns and Jared Cook is the leading receiver with 49 catches. Not great numbers – the defense is likely going to have to shine in order for this team, to be able to keep things close.

The Rams defense allows 22.3 points and 351.5 yards and they are minus one in turnover ratio – they harassed the Seahawks defense all day long in the first meeting but don’t quite look the same at this point of the season.

Keep in mind that this Rams team has beaten the Hawks and the Broncos already this year – they are capable of making some noise any given week.


The Seattle Seahawks are peaking – to say the least! On both sides of the ball they are looking dangerous – as potent as any team in the game right now. The Seahawks defense has now given up a total of 33 points in the last five games combined! Seattle is 5-0 over the past five weeks and has outscored teams 114-33 in those five games – as dominant on both sides of the ball as we have seen from any team this year. The streak included a 35-6 win last week against Arizona – one of the best defenses in the league.

The Hawks defense has clamped down to say the least – they haven’t allowed more than 64 yards rushing in the last four games, they have allowed a grand total of three touchdowns and five field goals in its last five games and they have made life absolutely miserable for all of their opposition as of late. This unit gets a crack at a Rams offense that has been stuck in neutral the last two weeks – advantage Seattle!

On Sunday night Seattle gained 596 yards against one of the best defenses in the game – Russell Wilson passed for 339 yards and the combination of Lunch and Wilson rushed for 267 yards and three TDs. Every aspect of Seattle’s offense is clicking right now – if the mighty Cards couldn’t slow them in the desert, it is nearly unfathomable to think the Rams will be able to slow the Hawks at CenturyLink.

NFL Week 17 Betting Trends

• Under is 22-6-1 in STL last 29 games in December.
• STL are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC West.

• Under is 8-1 in SEA last 9 games in December.

There is a chance that the Seahawks know their fate by the time they take to the field on Sunday and could take their foot off the gas a tad but the way that they are playing and on home turf, they should roll despite.
