Well, here we are. The NFL season is a quarter of the way over with this week's game. The St. Louis Rams are 1-2, with a crucial division matchup at the Dome against the Seattle Seahawks.
This is widely expected to be a battle of the defenses. The Rams have been plucking balls out of the air with authority this week, and the Seahawks are shutting down almost every offense they face this year. For the Rams, the biggest question is whether or not they can protect quarterback Sam Bradford. Seattle brought down Aaron Rodgers eight times last week, and the Rams offensive line has been awfully thin thanks to injuries.
Division games can look a little different than they do on paper, thanks to an eager home crowd and a well prepared home team.
