The Los Angeles Rams (3-1) are coming from a 35-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.
Here are two reasons why the Seahawks feel they are uniquely equipped to slow down running back Todd Gurley and the Rams offense that leads the National Football League in scoring. They got one of two and one they did get was the most preferred, a win.
The Seahawks did prevail, albeit barely. If the Cardinals can somehow win those division games, they will be in good shape to win the West.
"People look forward to writing us off", cornerback Richard Sherman crowed. "Our demise was greatly overstated".

Second-year defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson, who was signed by the Seahawks off the Rams' practice squad this week, said it was his observation during the month he spent with Los Angeles that "everyone respected Coach McVay". Russell Wilson bounced back from two early interceptions to finish 21 of 26 for 295 yards and two touchdowns. They gained 375 yards from scrimmage, 134 more than the victorious Seahawks. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli could create problems for Green Bay by matching him up with Bulaga, who has said he likely won't be 100% healthy even if he plays.
After he played two consecutive games without a turnover, Goff's decision-making proved costly. "It was a special day for them". Well, I guess we'll see. "But you're going to know if I'm out there because I'll be out there having fun and working hard for my team". "I just know the ball was not on target". No improvement by Seattle's line may mean no win in L.A. Before the Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII, Carroll said it took getting fired twice - and "getting kicked in the butt" - to get to where he was.
We probably should have known better, considering Jeff Fisher was in charge and Case Keenum was at quarterback. "If I'm putting my hands on the ball, I've got to make that play".
We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game.
Conversely, Wilson - under constant pressure from a harassing Rams defense - kept plays alive all afternoon with his knack for avoiding the rush. But it was ability to scamper away from pass-rushers and find a secondary receiver that was the difference. How about Gurley, who has rebounded from an very bad sophomore season to thrive in new coach Sean McVay's offense.
Wilson also made a play he'd rather have not been forced into.More news: Spain the 11th Team to Qualify for the 2018 World Cup
Seattle, which trailed 10-0, wasn't as great as it was opportunistic. It will be up to the rest of the defensive line, guys like Sheldon Richardson and Michael Bennett, to elevate their level of play to compensate for the loss of Avril. On their first possession, the Rams marched from their 35 to the Seattle 12. After a long review, the officials ruled since the ball hit the pylon, it was a touchback and Seattle received the ball at their own 20.
They had chances right to the end, though. The Rams split their two games with the Seahawks a year ago, but they didn't score a touchdown in either game.
CLEVELAND - Josh McCown came back to Cleveland and beat the team that cut him, throwing two touchdown passes and leading the surprising Jets over the winless Browns, who benched rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer and fell to 1-20 under coach Hue Jackson.
"You're expected to make those plays and my expectations are no different", Kupp said.
Carroll reached for the proverbial thesaurus in describing the low-scoring affair. It won't almost be that easy against Seattle, regardless of the players they're missing. "It was a really exciting, tough, hard-nosed, hard-fought, well-deserved win".
