3. Rams barely got by first two times

Even before the Rams started to play better during the 2017 season, they always seemed to play some of their best football whenever facing the Seahawks for whatever reason.

After splitting the two meetings last season, Los Angeles actually swept the season series with Seattle in 2018, although it wasn’t easy.

The fact that Los Angeles won both games by a combined seven points shows how each contest easily could have gone the other way with Seattle finishing on the winning end.

If these two teams were to meet for a third time, one can only imagine the extra motivation by the Seahawks to make sure they didn’t fall to 0-3 on the season to the Rams since no team ever wants to deal with that.

With that extra motivation, this could have resulted in Los Angeles being eliminated earlier than expected for a second year in a row, which would also mean all of their success from this season would end up being a complete waste.

This all may sound a little extreme to consider from a hypothetical scenario, but also could have very well happened to the Rams since the Seahawks of all teams know how to defeat their division rivals.
