The Los Angeles Rams are 9-5 and the Seattle Seahawks are 10-4. The two teams face off in Seattle at 1:25 PM PT and if the Rams win, they’ll be a Week 17 win or a Seahawks loss away from winning the NFC West. If the Rams lose, they will still likely earn a wild card berth. But that’s definitely not the goal today.

Today’s mission: beat the Seahawks and control your fate.

Sean McVay has had success against Pete Carroll in his career so far, including in this season’s 23-16 win at home. Aaron Donald has proven to be a nightmare for Russell Wilson and the players meant to protect him. Jalen Ramsey won his first meeting in 2020 against DK Metcalf.

There is plenty of reason for optimism.

Which players are having the biggest impact?

Which ones need to step up?

How is McVay responding to last week?

Talk about it right here.
