RAMS (9-4) AT SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (8-5)
The Rams exceeded their season scoring average in last week’s loss to the Eagles, but it wasn’t enough. Now they face a depleted Seahawks defense that is without star cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Kam Chancellor. Linebacker Bobby Wagner is questionable, and linebacker K.J. Wright is doubtful. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has passed for 22 touchdowns, with six interceptions, but he had a costly turnover against the Eagles, losing a fumble on a sack in the fourth quarter. He also was unable to move the offense later in the game. Goff could be buoyed by the return of receiver Robert Woods, who was sidelined three games because of a shoulder injury. Rookie Cooper Kupp and veteran Sammy Watkins stepped up in Woods’ absence, and rookie Josh Reynolds also got opportunities. Running back Todd Gurley rushed for 96 yards in only 13 carries against the Eagles, and coach Sean McVay once again blamed himself for not getting him more involved. Tackles Andrew Whitworth and Rob Havenstein suffered knee injuries last week but both are expected to play. The Seahawks have remained competitive despite the loss of Sherman and Chancellor. End Michael Bennett has 7½ sacks, Frank Clark seven.
