What you need to know to get ready for Seahawks vs. Rams

Seahawks-Rams showdown will set tone for NFC West

The Seahawks promoted DE Branden Jackson, an undrafted free agent from Texas Tech who played with the Raiders in 2016, from their practice squad to the 53-man roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game in Los Angeles against the NFC-West leading Rams. However, last Sunday, Seattle managed to run the scoreboard up on the Colts 46-18. And it means more of J.D. McKissic as the third-down running back for Prosise, who is missing a game because of injury for the 14th time in 24 games since Seattle drafted him previous year. Turnovers were a difference-maker as well as Justin Coleman and Bobby Wagner scored defensive touchdowns. He is one of three (along with Hall of Famers Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith) to have 575 scrimmage yards and seven TDs in his team's first four games.

Russell Wilson has been running for his life from opposing defenses since last season. He carved up the Cowboys with 21 of 36 passing for 255 yards and two touchdowns.

The Rams have a new coach, one of the best running backs in the league and a quarterback who doesn't seem almost so clueless now that he's in his second year. There is another factor looming large as the two NFC West rivals matchup - the division could be at stake on Sunday afternoon.

How the line holds up and whether it can minimize the damage caused by Donald and fellow defensive linemen Michael Brockers and Robert Quinn (directed by defensive wizard Wade Philips), will greatly affect the outcome of this game. Considering that the San Francisco 49ers have yet to win a game this season, it's safe to assume that Seattle only has to beat Arizona and Los Angeles to win the division.

The Seattle Seahawks tried to get cute against the Los Angeles Rams, and it didn't go so well.

This weekend, in another "statement game", the Rams will wear throwbacks featuring colors that will match. Stopping Gurley may prove to be a hard task for the Seahawks.

While the Rebels were struggling to put points on the board, the Tigers were converting possessions into touchdowns. The Rebels need a culture change and someone willing to head up one of the toughest rebuilds in recent SEC history.

Highlights will update once the game begins. Goff has had plenty of time on his passes to get the ball out.

Defense has been a definite problem for both teams in the early portion of the season. There's no word yet on whether he plans on shaking up a snowstorm or a light dusting, but offensive changes are expected to go into effect immediately as the Seahawks prepare for a tough road game against the Tennessee Titans. Injuries another concern with defensive end Cliff Avril (neck) out and cornerback Jeremy Lane (groin) questionable. And the Seahawks (2-2) have significant offensive line issues that might not resolve themselves.

But the Rams usually vaunted defense has not been it's normal self. Then the Seahawks lost two straight games and the same National Football League fans and media members that were praising Seattle two weeks earlier were convinced that their season was over.

The Seahawks have struggled during the first few weeks of the season during every year of the Russell Wilson era (except the Super Bowl year), only to turn it around and win their first playoff game.

Last season, in the team's first year back in Los Angeles since leaving in 1994, local fans were not quiet about the team wearing colors associated with their tenure in St. Louis.

Jared Goff continues to show why he was taken No. 1 overall last season. "I think more than anything else, again a very smart player, and he's got really good ball skills".
