The Seattle Seahawks showed the improving Rams that they aren’t about to give up their stranglehold on the NFC West. In a showdown between the division’s top two teams, Seattle forced five turnovers and held the highest-scoring team in the league to 10 points to climb back into their familiar spot at the top of the standings. Seattle is still a prohibitive favorite at -400 to win the West for a third straight season and for the fifth time in six years.
Seattle’s defense has put together six quarters of spectacular football after throttling the Colts in the second half of the previous game, and it looks like the Seahawks are about to take off after struggling through the first few games of the year. Meanwhile, the Rams are hoping their barrage of turnovers doesn’t carry over to their game against the Jags, who lead the NFL in takeaways and turnover differential. Two of the NFL’s best backs will square off with LA’s Todd Gurley, who ranks third in the league with 405 yards, going against the No. 2 rusher Leonard Fournette.
And speaking of backs, the Arizona Cardinals made a move to bolster their run game by acquiring Adrian Peterson from the Saints. The Cards are last in the league in rushing and sorely miss David Johnson, but AP could provide a spark to get the offense moving. The Cards scored just one touchdown in each of the last two games and haven’t had a rushing touchdown since Kerwynn Williams reached the endzone in the season opener.
The 49ers might be the best winless team in NFL history, but that’s like being the tallest midget. The Niners lost a second straight game in overtime, bowing to the Colts 26-23 after staging a 14-point fourth quarter comeback. Up until the last eight minutes of the period, the Niners again struggled to find the endzone. They failed to score a touchdown in three of their first four games and waited until the midway point of the fourth against the Colts. It’s easy to pinpoint the problem and when you’re best offensive player is the kicker, there are some issues. The Niners dropped the last four games by a combined 11 points, which is nearly the spread in this week’s game against the Redskins.

The Seattle Seahawks 2016 season came to a resounding halt versus the red-hot Atlanta Falcons.
Head Coach Pete Carroll summed up the season perfectly, “We never found the consistency of our execution throughout the course of the year, for a variety of reasons.” Carroll went on to tell 710 ESPN Seattle, “We were good enough to win a division, we were good enough to win enough games to get there and all of that, but we never got our roll going.” Continue
The Arizona Cardinals made it to the NFC Championship game in 2015 but took a step back a season ago, falling to 7-8-1 and missing the playoffs. Quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald both contemplated retirement in the offseason, so it seems as if the championship window is closing with those two players as main cogs. The Cardinals had a lot of turnover on the defensive side of the ball but talent remains. This is a team that can bounce back, although key veterans must stay healthy and perform. Continue
The Los Angeles Rams don’t have high expectations in 2017, as steady progress would be a welcome sight even if it doesn’t result in a bunch of wins. Los Angeles is young at several positions and may have one of the worst offenses in the NFL this season.
While the team has low expectations, there are a couple of key pieces that will be watched closely. Quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley have yet to break out in the NFL and they hope to show that they are deserving of their high draft picks in 2017. Continue
The San Francisco 49ers finished the 2016 season undefeated against the Los Angeles Rams. Unfortunately for Trent Baalke and coach Chip Kelly, who were both fired at the beginning of this week, the ‘Niners went winless against the rest of the NFL. The team lacked talent and what talent the team did have got injured, especially on the defensive side of the ball. NaVorro Bowman, Eric Reid and Arik Amsted all suffered season ending injuries, with Bowman’s having the biggest impact as he was the heart and soul of the defense. Continue
