The Los Angeles Rams are coming off the worst loss of the NFL season, losing at home to the Jets, and right when you're ready to believe in this team, they let you down. The Seattle Seahawks are one of the more consistent teams in the league, and the defense has drastically improved, allowing 21 or less points in each of their last five games. The Rams have won five of the last six meetings against the Seahawks, but it's Seattle that's playing easily the better football. I'm also not sure how you can confidently back the Rams after what they showed you last week. I'll gladly take the Seahawks and the small chalk.
