Los Angeles faces NFC West foe Seattle as absolute supremacy in the division heats up in Week 5.
The Los Angeles Rams head to the Pacific Northwest for a Week 5 match-up against the Seattle Seahawks. LA, who is 4-0 entering October, will look to go 2-0 in the NFC West and effectively put a world of distance between themselves and the rest of the division.
Easier said than done?
Maybe, but I don’t think so.
As an admitted cynic, I’ve been waiting for the Rams to come back to earth via an opponent who would be able to slow them down on offense, push their defense, or at the very least keep them close late in the fourth quarter.
That opponent hasn’t been on the schedule thus far and they won’t be this weekend either.
Don’t fool yourself with the “on any given Sunday” rhetoric in Week 5. The Seahawks aren’t the worst team in the division, but they also aren’t close to who they once were, or close to the Rams who have leapfrogged them for NFC West supremacy.
With the division playing each other this weekend, how things may ultimately play out will become very clear before you go to bed Sunday night.
One thing you’ll definitely see is how good the Rams are and how far back the Seahawks have fallen.
