The Seattle Seahawks were the biggest favorites in week one, but they barely held on to win at home versus the very game Miami Dolphins.
They’ll travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams who will look to bounce back after a disappointing showing against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night.
The Seattle Seahawks faced the Miami Dolphins who possess one of the better defensive lines in the game and they had their hands full.
The Seahawks offensive line was, as usual, pretty dreadful and Russell Wilson had to make plays with his feet and when he injured his ankle he had to stay in the pocket and take some shots.
Wilson struggled throwing an interception that led to three points and a fumble that would have led to another three points had Cassius Marsh not blocked the 27 yard field goal.
However, when the Seahawks needed Wilson to step up, he did. With about four minutes left and down 10-6 needing a touchdown, Wilson lead his team 75 yards on 14 plays in 3:37.
There’s a saying in boxing that styles make fights, well we could use that logic in football. A strong defensive line presence gives this Seahawks offensive line problems and the Seahawks will be facing another strong defensive line in the Rams.
And that is why the Rams have given the Seahawks fits over the past few years.
One last note, it’ll be a bit of a homecoming for Pete Carroll as he is headed back to the Coliseum where he was 77-5 as the USC Trojans head coach.
Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams got off on the wrong foot getting shut out on the road against the San Francisco 49ers 28-0. The Rams will look to bounce back at home against the Seattle Seahawks.
The funny thing is when the Rams do come to the Coliseum at home, it may as well be a road game as there will be more Seahawk fans than Ram fans.
The good news is Los Angeles has matched up well with Seattle over the years giving the Seahawks fits whether in St. Louis or Seattle. So, the Rams will look to carry that over.
However, they will need a better effort from their offense. Their defense will be fine and they will shut the Seahawks offense down, especially if Russell Wilson is 100% because of his ankle.
Monitor that situation as the week progresses. But, back to the Rams offense.
Los Angeles needs Case Keenam to make some passes and take better care of the ball. Keenam only averaged 3.7 yards per pass, he only completed around 50% of his passes and he threw two interceptions against San Francisco.
Keenam will have to make some passes and make the defense think about the passing game which will help Todd Gurley out in the running game.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Rams ATS
This is going to be another dog fight. Two physical teams that will not give an inch. I like the Seahawks to eek out another win, but I like the Rams to cover and I think the under will hit.
With the way Los Angeles looked against San Francisco that -3.5 might balloon a point or two. I would like that even better. Also, there isn’t an over/under total yet, but basically no matter what it is I like the under.
