With a record of 6-5, the Seattle Seahawks are sitting in second place in the NFC West. They'll face a division rival this week when they head to Los Angeles to face the Rams. This won't be an easy game, especially since they're on a two-game losing streak. Will the Seahawks be able to snap out of their funk and get a win over the Rams?

The Los Angeles Rams are having a pretty tough season themselves. They have a record of 3-8 and have lost their last five games of the season. QB Matthew Stafford is still listed as questionable, leaving the team without their starter. He's not the only player that's injured on the Rams, either. So, who's the better pick between these two NFC West teams?

Seahawks vs. Rams Preview, Trends, and Stats

The Seattle Seahawks have the fourth-best scoring offense in the NFL. They're averaging 26.5 points per game, but they only have six wins under their belt. As always, most of this has nothing to do with the offense, but instead is the burden of the defense.

When you look at how the defense has performed, you'll see why they only have six wins. On average, the Seahawks are giving up 25.5 points per game, ranking 28th in the NFL. Due to their poor defense, they have to fight for wins late in games.

This defense gave up 40 points last week to the Las Vegas Raiders. This back-and-forth battle could've been stopped if the Seahawks had a better defense. Once overtime came, the Seahawks' defense gave up an 86-yard touchdown run.

The Los Angeles Rams would be wise to take advantage of Seattle's poor defense. However, with Stafford sidelined, this offense has taken a massive step back. The Los Angeles Rams have the 29th-ranked scoring offense this season, averaging 16.2 points per game.

So, how can the Rams stay competitive in this game? For starters, they need to do better at scoring once they get into the red zone. If they can establish the run early, perhaps they can use that to their advantage. Still, the Rams aren't our pick to actually win this game.

Seahawks vs. Rams Predictions

The Seattle Seahawks are our choice to win this game, but the question is, who will cover? Seattle is -7 and has an 0-3 record against the spread in their last three games against Los Angeles. Even though they've lost their last two games, we'll take Seattle over Los Angeles.

The Rams don't have much of an offense, even with a few talented receivers. They haven't scored over 20 points since the season's second week, either. Even at +7, we'd rather risk it and take the Seahawks.

Final Score: 26-17 (Seahawks)

EXTRA POINTS

1. The total has gone over in six of Seattle's last nine games.

2. The Rams are 0-4-1 against the spread in their last five games.

3. The Rams are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games at home.

Best Bet: Seahawks -7 (-110) and Over 41.5 (-110)

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams Recap NOV 15TH 2020

Malcolm Brown rushed for two touchdowns as the Los Angeles Rams moved into a three-way tie for first place in the NFC West with a 23-16 victory against the visiting Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon in Inglewood, Calif.

The Rams (6-3) pulled even with the Seahawks (6-3), who have lost three of their past four games, and the Arizona Cardinals (6-3), who defeated the Buffalo Bills.

Despite Aaron Donald, a two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, not recording a tackle, the Rams' No. 2-ranked defense held Seattle's third-ranked offense to a season low in points. The Seahawks had scored more than 30 points in seven of their previous eight games, with 27 their low before Sunday.

Linebacker Leonard Floyd had three sacks and recovered a fumble and Darious Williams made two interceptions for L.A.

The Rams' Jared Goff was 27-of-37 passing for 302 yards against Seattle's league-worst passing defense. Josh Reynolds had a team-high eight receptions for 94 yards.

Seattle's Russell Wilson was 22 of 37 for 248 yards. It was only the second time he failed to throw a touchdown pass in the past two seasons, the other time last Dec. 8 at Los Angeles.

Brown's 1-yard scoring run with 6:22 left in the third quarter was the lone touchdown of the second half after the Rams led 17-13 at the intermission.

Seattle's Jason Myers kicked a 39-yard field goal with 25 seconds remaining, but the Rams recovered the ensuing onside kick.

After Kai Forbath kicked a 23-yard field goal on Los Angeles' first possession of the game, the Seahawks responded with a 78-yard drive capped by Alex Collins' 13-yard touchdown run. Collins was filling in for the injured Chris Carson (mid-foot sprain) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring), who have each missed the past three games.

The Rams marched right back down the field, with Darrell Henderson Jr. scoring from 1 yard out.

Brown's 7-yard touchdown run with 6:19 left in the second quarter gave the Rams a 17-7 lead.

Myers kicked 37- and 61-yard field goals in the final 3:45 of the half, the latter a franchise record as time expired.
