This is arguably the most important game for the Seahawks this season
The Seattle Seahawks have a huge game coming up against their longtime rival in the Los Angeles Rams for their Week 16 matchup. This week is arguably the most important game on their schedule for the Seahawks for a variety of reasons.
To set things straight, a Seahawks win would equate to them clinching the NFC West division. Luckily for the Seahawks, the Rams lost last week to the lowly New York Jets that gave the Jets their first win of the season. The loss not only knocked the Rams to the second seed in the division but also put them back a bit as it makes it harder for them to clinch the division.
The Seahawks head into this game with a 10-4 record while the Rams are at 9-5. If the Seahawks win this game, it would be mathematically impossible for the Rams to clinch the division with only one contest left after this week.
If the Seahawks lose this week to the Rams though, it can be either team’s division in Week 17. Next week, the Seahawks take on another division rival in the San Francisco 49ers while the Rams play the other team in the division in the Arizona Cardinals.
If the Seahawks win this week though, next week won’t be relevant as they would have already clinched the division with a win over the Rams.
Let’s get the win this week. Here’s who to watch for in the Seahawks Week 16 matchup against the Rams.
