The Los Angeles Rams remain on top of the NFC West standings. After a highly entertaining game with the Philadelphia Eagles that left the Rams a loss, the Seattle Seahawks also fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars in a tough game.

With a crucial matchup in Week 15 between the Rams and Seahawks, the implications reach future than a divisional race as the winner of the game controls their destiny for hosting a playoff game instead of starting the playoff (if even making the playoffs) on the road.

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams hosted the Eagles and lost a tough battle, 43-35, thanks to a Tavon Austin fumble in the waning seconds that made the end score larger than actuality. Jared Goff had a rough moment with a fumble in a crucial juncture of the game.

Todd Gurley played an amazing game, along with Cooper Kupp, but Coach McVay went a little bit away from the run game inexplicably.

The Rams travel to Seattle with essentially the division crown on the line. Buckle up for another exciting game.

Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks experienced the number one defense in the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Russell Wilson had a rough game with three interceptions and fans provoking ejected players. Even with the loss however, Seattle feels that they have life with the Rams falling at home.

The Seahawks will be motivated this week to essentially steal the division crown with a win this week against the Rams.

Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals won a defensive battle against the Tennessee Titans, 12-7. With continued play from backup quarterbacks, the Cardinals leaned heavily on their defense. Marcus Mariota struggled mightily against the Cardinals, continuing on a disappointing season in which many expected him to take a step forward.

The Cardinals travel to Washington to face the Washington Football Franchise.

San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers won against the Houston Texans, 26-16. With the Texans quarterback hurt and allowed to go back in, the concussion story dominated the game, more so than the strong play of Jimmy Garoppolo and Marquise Goodwin.

The 49ers host the Titans next week.
