You may not be confident in the LA Rams game day outcome, but here are three reasons why we’re confident that they can bounce back against the Seahawks

The LA Rams are 9-5 and having lost to the anything-but-intimidating New York Jets. In doing so, the Rams have fallen to a game behind the Seattle Seahawks in the race to claim the NFC West division title. One game back with two games remaining is a problem for the Rams. Well, it could be if the Rams and Seahawks did not face one another in week 16.

The Rams have defeated the Seahawks once before, and must do so again to cinch their playoff spot. The funny thing about one of the more probable scenarios is that if the Rams defeat the Seahawks today, then they could face the Seahawks in just two weeks time as the third-seed NFC Playoff team hosting the sixth-seed NFC Wildcard team.  So even by winning now, the Rams may be lapping the track only to come face to face with the Seahawks once more.

All hands on deck

The Rams take on the Seattle Seahawks today with the obvious ‘it’s all on the line’ scenario. Even as the Rams tried to recover from a deflating and unexplained loss from just a week ago, the Rams had to regain their focus, buckle down in Christmas week, and be ready to perform against a dangerous divisional adversary.

The Rams are getting healthier. The team has reinstated both DB Juju Hughes and DB Nick Scott from the reserve/COVID-19 list for this one. Their return will be a huge boost to a defense that never seemed to be themselves against an outmanned but not outgunned Jets offense. With two healthy players returning to help the Rams secondary, the defense should be much better at defending passes targeting inside linebacker, Troy Reeder, today.
