Preview

The Los Angeles Rams are more than likely heading to the playoffs without their starting quarterback Jared Goff.

Goff has not yet been officially banned, so his status will remain imperative for this competition. The Rams had no problem without Goff in their Week 17 win over rivals NFC West at the Arizona Cardinals.

The Rams beat the Cards by the final score of 18-7 at home. With the victory, the Rams earned their second playoff appearance in three years.

The last time the Rams made the playoffs, they made the Super Bowl, a possible loss to the Patriots to Tom Brady.

The Rams are relying on their tenacious defense, a defense that allowed the fewest yards per game (281.9) and allowed the fewest points per game as well (18.5).

The Rams' offense was a little below par, but it didn't have to be stellar for the team to be successful.

The Rams finished the regular season with a 10-6 record and scored impressive victories over teams like the Seahawks, Buccaneers and Cardinals (twice).

The Seattle Seahawks ended their regular season with a narrow 26-23 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on the road (Arizona).

The Seahawks finished the regular season with four straight wins over the Jets, Washington soccer, the Giants and the Niners.

The Seahawks are 12-4 and will host a playoff game for the first time since the 2016 season. The Seahawks' offense ranked eighth in the league in points per game.

In terms of yards per game, the Seahawks were in the middle of the field on offense. Defensively, the Seahawks started the season poorly on the defensive end but ended the year warmer.

The Seahawks have allowed 20 points or less in four of their last five games to end the season. For Seattle, it's Super Bowl or failure, and here a win is needed for the Hawks organization.

Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks Prediction

The Seahawks are the favorites. If Goff is ruled out for this game, expect the line to go beyond range 5 or 6. Sportsbook knows the Rams don't trust Goff as much as they do their defense for him. Unfortunately for Los Angeles, the Seahawks play soccer too well for a team like the Rams to get in their way.
