Reason 2 – Rams offense can put up points

The Rams offense has not been as dominating as it has been in the past. But let’s face it, the Rams offense is still effective enough to put up points. Over the past four seasons, the LA Rams have faced the Seattle Seahawks eight times.  In that span, the offense has scored 210 points against Seattle. The math average out to 26.3 points per game.

Now, this Rams offense is no more the average offense than the Seahawks are the average defense. But over the course of time, it has been the matchup between Sean McVay and Pete Carroll, and everyone they have surrounded themselves with.  Here we go again, the third time these two have met this season. So far, the Seahawks and Rams have split the games. This is the rubber match.

Offensive woes? Whoa, hold on there

The LA Rams offense has been held without a touchdown in the final two games of the NFL season. That equates to eight NFL quarters and will add stress to the Rams offense when squaring off against the Seahawks for the second time in three games. So how do the Rams suddenly figure out how to get the football into the end zone?

Well,  that will be the shell game that the Seattle Seahawks will need to defend this week. Will the Rams feature TE Tyler Higbee in the red zone? Will the team rush Malcolm Brown. If John Wolford gets the start, will the Rams design some misdirection plays to take advantage of his raw speed? The Rams offense has so many weapons to feature, and yet the abundance of talent dilutes the perception of just how good they can be in a stage like the playoffs.
