So, last week was great, right? If you read and memorized my bold predictions, which of course you did, you’d noticed that I went 1 for 4.
So, you know what that means... time to turn up on the crazy dial for this week’s bold predictions. Since the Los Angeles Rams are facing off with their division rival Seattle Seahawks, it time to hold nothing back.
The Rams defense will shut out the Seahawks -- complete domination
First off, I think the Seahawks are overhyped due to their recent history as a powerhouse in the NFL West. Due to an injury with RB Chris Carson, the Seahawks will be giving a lot of looks to sometimes suspect RB Thomas Rawls — and their offensive line is still a dumpster fire. I also feel that Wade Phillips’ crew have been listening to the criticisms for the past couple weeks and they’re hungry to make a statement.
Rams special teams will score 20+ points
K Greg Zuerlein is a beast and will likely rack up some points this week, but I’m banking on WR Pharoh Cooper to take one to the house. Who knows? Maybe WR Tavon Austin will get in the mix as well. Not matter how it’s divided, expect Coach Bones to put a lot of points on the board with his special teams squad.
WR Josh Reynolds is going to make a big impression with 2 touchdown catches
Even though Coach Sean McVay stated that WR Sammy Watkins’ illness won’t keep him from playing on Sunday, I feel like the guy isn’t 100% and still need another week or so after his concussion two weeks ago. And since McVay has shown that he likes to spread the focus of his offensive gameplay to different players each week, how about rookie wideout Josh Reynolds? He was great in the preseason and now he’s ready for his first big breakout performance in the regular season.
Multiple sacks for DT Tanzel Smart
The rookie defensive linemen has 8 tackles and a deflected pass already this season and this week will give him even more chances as the injury-ridden Seahawks will be focused on stopping Michael Brockers and Aaron Donald. Look for the former Tulane standout to sneak over to QB Russell Wilson, sending him to the grass at least twice.
Rams offense will score over 27 points
With the already predicted 20+ points for the special teams, the Rams will also throw in 27 points with their offense, bringing a total of 47 points, making it official: “the Los Angeles are the greatest show on surf.”
How is this for bold? The Los Angeles Rams are going to embarrass the Seattle Seahawks in a classic beat-down — 47-0.
