The Rams suffered the inevitable letdown in week 4, giving Tampa Bay their first loss since last year in the Sunday prior but then falling in a big way to Arizona 37-20 at home. L.A is ready to return the favor, visiting a Seattle team that beat Seattle 28-21 last time out.
The Seahawks did get a break with Jimmy Garoppolo injuring his calf on Sunday afternoon, but Seattle was probably in control either way. 28-21 looks nice on the final scoreboard, but this is a game that Seattle was leading 28-13 until under 2:00 left in the 4th quarter.
Los Angeles Rams
Just when you think you’re getting anointed as kings of the NFL, life hands you a lemon and that’s what happened to L.A in week 4. The Rams had started 3-0 and although the first two wins weren’t impressive they were coming off a 10-point home victory over the Bucs.
What happened last Sunday at SoFi Stadium was Arizona instead rising to one of the favorites to head to the NFC Championship game. The Cardinals came to L.A. as +3.5 underdogs and left with a dominating 37-20 win. Kyler Murray had a decent game for ARZ by going 24/32 for 268 and 2/0, but the Rams failure to stop the Cardinals running game doomed them in.
Chase Edmonds scampered for 120 yards on just 12 carries on Sunday, helping Arizona lead the time of possession battle 35:10 to 24:50. It’s strange how the Rams high powered offense can’t hurt you when they are on the sidelines.
As good as the L.A. offense is, it was supposed to be their defense that helped them contain Murray and the Cardinals. The Rams gave up 465 total yards to Arizona and now faces a very similar style QB in Russell Wilson on the road on a short turnaround with the TNF game.
Russell Wilson has never lost three straight games in his NFL career, and that was one of the major reasons that the Seahawks had some value last Sunday as +2.5 underdogs at San Francisco. Wilson didn’t have his best game, but a 16 of 23 for 149 yards and 2 TD was enough to get the 28-21 win against the 49ers.
One would think that Seattle just wears down at some point here though. So far this season they’ve played in Indianapolis, came back home and loss to the Titans, went back East of the Mississippi in a loss to the Vikings and then just won on the West Coast against SF. Now the Seahawks have a second straight game against a divisional foe.
Seattle does have a little revenge to serve up on Thursday night as it was the Rams who ended their season last year with a 30-20 win in the NFC wild card game. The two division rivals split the series last year, with Seattle losing 23-16 at Los Angeles and winning 20-9 at home.

4* Free Week 5 NFL Betting Prediction: Rams PK
The Rams had a tough outing against Arizona last Sunday but L.A was also coming down off their big win over Tampa Bay the week prior. One of the reasons Seattle had such an easy time with San Francisco on Sunday was because the 49ers were coming off their heartbreaking last second loss to Green Bay the week prior (not to mention SF’s starting QB got hurt).
