Fans have seen a lot from the Los Angeles Rams in 2018, but one thing they haven’t seen is this team after a loss. At 8-1 and one of the two best teams in both the NFC and the NFL, Week 10 may have some wondering what happens when they play a division rival like the Seahawks.
First things first. Don’t look for any hangover from their loss against the New Orleans Saints. If the law of averages mean anything, the Rams were likely due a loss. LA had been able to handle the previous eight teams simply because they had the better talent on the field. The Saints were different if for no other reason than the talent gap was non-existent.
Seattle poses a different challenge.
At 4-4, finding a trend beyond average is hard to identify. In Week 5, the Rams handled the Seahawks on the road by a close score of 33-31. Also, Seattle is a team who doesn’t go quietly. They were in it until the last play against one of the toughest teams in the AFC in the Los Angeles Chargers, a team many still believe will be the AFC representative in the Super Bowl.
Look for the Rams to go up early and stay on the Seahawks. A week after looking vulnerable in New Orleans, they won’t to Seattle.
