With Brees out with a thumb injury, the Seahawks seemed to have a major advantage in Week 3 by hosting the Saints going with Bridgewater under center.
Nothing against Bridgewater since the former Louisville star has received all sorts of praise over the years for his leadership skills, but his previous outing against the Rams made it seem like he was going to be a work in progress.
Instead, Bridgewater did just enough to help the Saints take down the Seahawks in Week 3 to help give the Rams a slight advantage for now in the race for the NFC West title.
Year after year, Seattle always seems to be the biggest threat to Los Angeles within the division, and this season will be nothing different if the month of September is any indication of what’s in store.
During Week 5, the Rams will hit the road to take on their rivals in Seattle in what will most likely turn out to be one of the top games of the weekend.
The Seahawks may be kicking themselves for coming up short against New Orleans, but the Rams are smart enough to know they still have just as great of a chance to win the division.
