LB Bobby Wagner led the way for the Seattle defense with 10 tackles and 1 pass deflection. The secondary had a productive outing for the Seahawks as CB Trey Flowers contributed 3 tackles and 1 interception while safety Bradley McDougald pitched in 6 tackles and 1 fumble recovery.
The Los Angeles Rams come into this matchup with a 7-5 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Arizona Cardinals, 34-7. QB Jared Goff had a big game through the air for Seattle as he connected on 32 of his 43 pass attempts for 424 yards and 2 TDs.

LB Cory Littleton led the way for the Los Angeles defense with 8 tackles, 1 TFL, and 1 sack. The Rams were able to get into the Arizona backfield a handful of times as DT Aaron Donald contributed 1.5 TFL and 1.5 sacks while DE Dante Fowler Jr, pitched in 2 TFL and 1 sack.
The Seattle Seahawks are making a case for one of the top teams in the NFL as they have been explosive on the offensive side of the ball and serviceable on the defensive side of the ball, and this divisional game will be important in pulling away from San Francisco. The Rams were able to get their offense rolling against the Arizona Cardinals, but that was one of the worst defenses in the NFL and this will be a tougher task for Jared Goff. The Seahawks have the ability to attack teams through their air with MVP candidate Russell Wilson and his dangerous weapons, but the ground attack has been the key with Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. Seattle is rolling right now and they should be able to outscore the Los Angeles Rams in a high-scoring affair.
