The LA Rams' offense has been one of the early surprises this season, and they host the Seahawks next week. The Seahawks are supposed to be among the elite teams, but they are 2-2, while the Rams are off to a 3-1 start.

The Rams have scored more than 30 points in each of their three wins, and to put this in perspective, the Rams scored more than 30 only three times over the past two seasons. The Rams currently lead the league in scoring at 35 points per game. The Rams are giving up 26 points per game, which is 26th.
Los Angeles is fifth in passing at 270 yards per game, and averaging 113 on the ground. A lot of that is due to the play of Jared Goff, who has passed for 1072 yards and seven touchdowns, with one interception. Todd Gurley leads the team in both rushing, 362 yards, and receiving, 234 yards and a combined seven touchdowns. The Rams have 12 sacks and have given up four. The Rams also have four interceptions.

Seattle has been respectable but not spectacular. The Seahawks are averaging 23 points and giving up 19 per game. The team is averaging 240 yards passing and 121 rushing.

Leading rusher Chris Carson, 208 yards, is injured and won't play this week. Russell Wilson has passed for 1024 yards, seven touchdowns, and two interceptions. He has also run for 138 yards and one touchdown. The door is now open for Eddie Lacy, who was expected to be the feature back when the season started.

Free Pick:
Seattle Seahawks +2.5

The Seahawks exploded in 2nd half and finally turned into the team we thought Seattle would be this season. Think that Seattle confidence carries over on the road to beat NFC West rival. Rams offense has looked very good the last two weeks but think Seahawks defense will slow them down this week. Final Score Prediction, Seattle Seahawks win outright as underdog but grab the points just in case 27-23.
