The 10-2 Seahawks have the most to gain and the most to lose in almost every game they play this season, given the fact that they are about as close to the Number 1 overall seed as they are to the Number 5 seed and not being able to play a home game during the playoffs.
Tonight, they put their league-best record on the line as they face the Rams.
The Rams nearly knocked off the Seahawks at home earlier this season, but a Greg Zuerlein miss as time expired won the game for the ‘Hawks.
Had that kick gone in, we’d be looking at a very different playoff race, one that would not have the Rams on the outside looking in.
Despite their 7-5 record, the Rams are one game behind and every game is crucial for them. A win tonight against the Seahawks won’t be easy, but a win could quiet many doubters and improve their playoff chances.
