Los Angeles Rams hosts Seattle Seahawks: Five Seahawks to watch

New, comments

The Rams look to sweep the Seahawks after splitting the series last season.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams won their first contest against the Seattle Seahawks to go 5-0. The Seahawks had dropped to 2-3. Entering this week’s contest the Rams had stayed mostly hot, entering at 8-1 while the Seahawks have fought to improve to 4-4.

A win for the Rams could essentially clinch things in the NFC West as the Rams would be in a very comfortable situation.

Here are the Seahawks that will do their best to prevent an early division crown heading back to Los Angeles.

QB Russell Wilson

The Seahawks are led by Wilson. When the Rams played Seattle in Week 5, Wilson was struggling. At that point, he had not shown his typical self. The Rams game was his best game to date and since then, Wilson had a bit of a hot streak. After posting the best QBR of the season in Week 5, Wilson went on to have two very strong games, posting a 98.9 QBR two weeks ago. For the season, Wilson has thrown for 1,791 yards with a 66.1% completion percentage. He boasts a 18-5 TD:INT ratio while also having 118 rushing yards for the season.

WR David Moore

Who? Oh the guy that scored two touchdowns against the Rams last contest. Moore is a former seventh round pick that started to hit his stride after that breakout performance against the Rams. Moore has had eight receptions, 160 yards, and two touchdowns since the last contest bringing his season totals to 13 receptions on 21 targets for 237 yards and four touchdowns.

EDGE Frank Clark

Clark comes into the contest as the sack leader for the Seahawks with 7.5 so far. In addition, Clark has also intercepted a pass while forcing three fumbles. In the first Rams-Seahawks tilt, Clark had two tackles, including a tackle for loss, and a pass defended. The Rams offensive line will have their hands full with Clark as they look to neutralize him like they mostly did in the last contest.

RB Mike Davis

With some injury concerns to Chris Carson, there’s a chance that Mike Davis will be the lead back on Sunday. Davis had actually scored in the last contest against the Rams and helped with a long 37-yard rush. For the season, Davis has 288 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

LB Bobby Wagner

Wagner leads the Seahawks in tackles while also having the most passes defended. Against the Rams in Seattle, Wagner had eight total tackles. For the season Wagner has 52 total tackles and hopes to have a better effort against Todd Gurley as Gurley had rushed for three touchdowns.
