After a much talked about Monday night game against the Green Bay Packers the Seattle Seahawks travel to St. Louis to face a Rams team that has had an inconsistent start to the season.
The Seahawks will face a Rams offensive line that has had a different combination of players in each of the team's first three games. To make the situation worse the Rams will be without center Scott Wells who is recovering from a broken foot. They will also miss tackle Rodger Saffold who is expected to be out several weeks with a knee injury.
St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford was sacked a season-high six times in the 23-6 loss at Chicago last Sunday. The Rams did only allow two sacks a week earlier against the Redskins so it is toss up as to how the offensive line will play today against a solid Seahawk defense.
"We're going to have another week to work together and we'll continue to do the same things that we've been doing with these guys," said Coach Jeff Fisher during a press conference.
The Seahawks have one of the top defenses in the league. Seattle is allowing just 58-rushing yards per game and the most yards any quarterback has managed to throw against them was Tony Romo's 247.
But Rams receiver Danny Amendola could cause problems for the Seahawks' secondary. Amendola has 25 receptions, second best in the league and has 296 receiving yards which is tied for third.
With a shaky and porous offensive line Bradford may not have time to find him. With the lack of protection Bradford has been forced to throw quick and short with 87 of his 95 passing attempts so far this year being less than 20 yards.
Defense will decide the winner of this game and Seattle's is just better. They have recorded ten sacks and four turnovers already this season.
Kick-off for the game is at 1:00 p.m. and can be watched online here.
