their running game, and both an offense and defensive line.

OverviewThe Professor walked into the class today White Marcus Peters Jersey , looked around the room, took attendance and missing were the Seattle Seahawks Legion of Boom, The Seahawks are are 2-2. Their two wins came at the expense against a weak Dallas Cowboys team and an unimpressive win against 0-4 Arizona Cardinals, who started rookie QB Josh Rosen. After four games, Seattle’s defense still ranks a respectable 10th against points allowed, 7th in yards allowed per game, 5th in passing yards allowed per game, but a deplorable 27th in rushing yards allowed per game. They play our Los Angeles Rams offense who after four games ranks 2nd in points, 1st in total yards per game, 2nd in passing yards per game and 7th in rushing yards per game.On defense, the Rams rank 5th in points per game, 9th in yards allowed per game, 15th in passing yards allowed per game and 5th in rushing yards allowed per game compared to the Seahawks’ lifeless offense which ranks 24th in points scored, 28th in yards allowed per game, 29th in passing yards allowed per game and 17th in rushing yards allowed per game.Oh Youth Todd Gurley II Jersey , how the mighty have fallen.If the Seahawks have any chance of winning this game, they have to slow down the Rams’ offense, which no one has been able to do thus far. They also must put up points against a pretty good Rams defense.Absent game changing turnovers, the likelihood of this happening is slim as the Rams remain a 7-point favorite to best the Seahawks and send the 12th Man home thinking about how their team is going to catch Los Angeles being three games out.The Seahawks are well aware of their position in the standings. They’re a team right now, needing a win in divisional rivalry game, desperately. The Rams on the other hand should approach this game as just another chance to solidify their grip on the NFC Western Division and at the the same time sticking it to a team, who finally gets to feel what its like to have the shoe on the other foot for a change.What the Rams need to do on offenseThe Rams’ offense needs to play as if the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football never ended. They need to find the advantageous matchups against the Seahawks’ secondary who are now without Pro Bowl S Earl Thomas and exploit them.Statistically, the Seahawks biggest weakness is in the run game. So Rams RB Todd Gurley needs to get over 100 yards on the ground while Head Coach Sean McVay continues to be aggressive in his playcalling. When the Rams offense is clicking, they can easily score 30 points. That should be more than enough to come out with a win.The Rams’ offensive line has to open the holes for Gurley and keep defenders off QB Jared Goff. If QB Goff has time and his wide receivers Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks have the kind of game like they did against the Vikings, forget it. This game will be a blow out.What the Rams need to do on defenseRams fans are completely focused on the Fearsome Threesome comprised of Michael Brockers, Ndamukong Suh and especially Aaron Donald turning Seattle QB Russell Wilson into a rag doll.The Rams’ defense needs to shut down any hopes of Seattle winning this game by totally shutting down what little run game the Seahawks have. Without a run game, it will force Wilson to throw the ball and that’s when the sacks and turnovers will come.Wilson is an elusive quarterback. He often runs to throw. But in order for Wilson to make plays, the Rams’ pass coverage must be tighter than a drum. When Wilson tries to escape looking to make a big play down the field, the Rams have to leave him with little or no options. This is when the Rams’ law firm of Johnathan Franklin-Myers and his associate Matt Longacre coming from off the edge must force Wilson back into the pocket lying in wait for Donald, Suh or Brockers to chew him up.It’s easy for Rams fans to fall into the trap that what happened to Wilson last year In Seattle is sure to happen again. I too would love to see that Brandin Cooks Jersey , but there were a lot of X-factors going into that game such as the schedule timing and fact that the division championship was on the line. This is not a factor in this game. And don’t forget what happened in Week 5 last year...I’m not as interested in seeing Wilson suffer as I am with the Rams winning the game, But, if both happen, then it’s double my pleasure.What the Rams need to do on special teams.Who knows what new K Cairo Santos is capable of. I’m not giving him a pass by any means. If you’re on my Rams team, I expect him to make the field goals when called upon and most importantly, do not miss any extra points.KR/PR JoJo Natson might be able to play. If so, my only concern here is catching the punts coming off a broken hand injury. Returners’ hands are first and foremost their most important tool. If JoJo muffs the first punt, I’m going to go crazy not just for the short term. It’s the long-term mental effects that will concern me.P Johnny Hekker needs to kick out of his funk—no shanks. Pretty sure I don’t have to be too concerned about that; however, you never know until the game is played.The one consistent factor the Rams have had against the Seahawks is the ability to come up with some crazy special teams play under Special Teams Coordinator John “Bones” Fassel, leaving Seattle Head Coach Pete Carroll running up and down the sidelines with that dumbfounded look on his face.Does coach Fassel have trick up his sleeve? We’ll have to wait and see.The X-factorSeattle has been a nightmare for the Rams over the years. Many students of mine come to class as the 12th man. They sit there at their desks talking about their dominance over Rams over the this last decade and their one and only Super Bowl victory. They’re very loud and relentless taking great pleasure making derogatory about the Rams.While I do my best to ignore the clamor and move forward, we reach a point in our studies called “Coaching to win the big game” mentioning the great Vince Lombardi, Chuck Noll, Don Shula and Bill Walsh. As I conclude my remarks, I say the words Pete Carroll and immediately, the Seattle contingent starts hooping and hollering. USC National Championship. Super Bowl Champions. Blah, blah. I inform these raucous bunch of students who are uninterested in actually learning the game Authentic Ramik Wilson Jersey , that Pete Carroll is on this list because this topic is about coaching to win the big game and I decided to mention Pete Carroll as being the dumbest coach in the history of football. I remind the 12th man that Instead of running the ball with Marshawn Lynch to win a second Super Bowl, Carroll and his team of geniuses decided to throw a crossing pattern into the end zone which was picked off by CB Malcolm Butler leading to the improbable result of the Patriots winning the game.When the 12th Man students leap immediately to defend their head coach. I must respectfully ask them to leave since any statements made in support of that decision receives an automatic F. They should just pick up their books and exit the classroom. No one wants to hear from them.That’s what this Sunday is all about. No one wants to hear from Seahawks fans about how great their team was or how they still own the Rams or anything close to that.It’s time to shut these guys up. The Los Angeles Rams have officially come back down to earth after a road trip to New Orleans that ended up in their first loss of the season.The offense performed well as always putting up 35 points, but it simply wasn’t enough after the first-half performance from the defense.Let’s revisit the matchups to watch:CB Marcus Peters vs WR Michael ThomasLast week’s matchup to watch:Yeah, this one wasn’t right at all. Peters was abused left right and center by Thomas. Thomas registered 12 receptions for 211 yards and a touchdown. He was converting third downs all over the field, breaking tackles to extend short catches into long ones, and even had the game-winning touchdown that effectively closed the game. Just an awful performance from the Rams’ #1 cornerback.WR Cooper Kupp vs CB P.J. WilliamsLast week’s matchup to watch:Kupp didn’t see a ton of the ball but still managed to be very productive. On only six targets, Kupp secured five receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown. He had an extremely long touchdown as well which was great to see. Kupp looked fully recovered from his concussion and knee injury from prior weeks and will continue to be relied upon going forward.OLB Dante Fowler Jr vs OT’s Terron Armstead/Ryan RamczykLast week’s matchup to watch:Fowler actually had a relatively solid performance for his first one in horns. The first half wasn’t great as he spent a lot of time on the floor and got bottled up by the two offensive tackles on separate occasions, but the light seemed to flip in the second half when Fowler registered multiple pressures and came alive. All in all, Fowler looked solid and put forth a promising first game after four days on his new team.RT Rob Havenstein vs DE Cameron JordanLast week’s matchup to watch:Hav (and the entire offensive line) had a tremendous performance. Jared Goff may have been pressured once or twice, but he wasn’t sacked one single time in the game. The Rams offense could pretty much do whatever they wanted moving the ball with ease. The offensive line had a fantastic bounce-back game after a shaky performance against Green Bay.QB Jared Goff vs Saints’ secondaryLast week’s matchup to watch:This prediction was relatively close as Goff had 391 yards and three touchdowns (one interception). Goff was pretty much marvelous outside of one mistake that turned out to be a bit costly as the interception turned into a touchdown drive for the Saints. Still, outside of a pick and maybe one missed throw later in the game to Robert Woods on first down, Goff absolutely torched the Saints defense. He had multiple pin-point accurate throws. Fantastic day from Goff and the passing offense.ILB Mark Barron/Cory Littleton vs RB Alvin KamaraLast week’s matchup to watch:This was pretty much as bad as the Thomas versus Peters battle. Alvin Kamara abused Rams defenders. They simply couldn’t cover and when they closed the gap, they couldn’t tackle at all. Kamara registered 110+ total yards and three touchdowns. These two need to be better.
