The NFC West continues to be about two teams this season, the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks. As the Rams forge ahead on a four game win streak, the Seahawks continue to be right behind them week to week, except now without their Legion of Boom member, Richard Sherman, who will miss the rest of the season with an Achilles injury.

1.) Rams (7-2)
2.) Seahawks (6-3)
3.) Cardinals (4-5)
4.) 49ers (1-9)
1.Los Angeles Rams
The Rams started off slow against the Houston Texans, entering the half with a slim 9-7 lead. The second half quickly unraveled for the Texans, with the Rams forcing a few turnovers and the offense coming to life with long touchdowns to Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins. Eventually, the Rams put on 33 points, winning 33-7. The Rams are winners of four straight and take the streak to the test against the 7-2 Minnesota Vikings led by former Rams “top ten by some metrics” quarterback Case Keenum.

2. Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks won a Thursday night game against the Arizona Cardinals but also came out with a major injury. Richard Sherman left the game with a season-ending injury.
The Seahawks take on the Falcons on MNF in Week 11.
3. Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals lost a close one to the Seahawks but continue to struggle on the injury front with left tackle D.J. Humphries injuring his knee, along with backup turned starting quarterback Drew Stanton. With limited offensive success or ability to get playmakers like Larry Fitzgerald the ball, the Cardinals will continue to struggle unless they can find a spark.
The Cardinals travel to Houston to take on the Texans.
The 49ers won their first game of the season, defeating the New York Giants, which likely puts the nail in the coffin for Ben McAdoo’s coaching tenure. Led by underrated and underappreciated Carlos Hyde on the ground, rookie C.J. Beathard did just enough with a huge play by Marquise Goodwin to give the 49ers a spark.
