The last meeting between these two teams saw Seattle come out on top 30-29 in a thriller as Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein missed a potentially game-winning field goal, but Los Angeles could get their revenge this time.
The significance of that missed kick can be seen by how each side have performed since. The Seahawks have won five of their six games and are currently the second seeds in the NFC, while the Rams have gone 4-3 and face a tall order to reach the playoffs.
It has been a head-scratching season for last year’s Super Bowl runners-up, who have blown hot and cold on offence, but showed signs of returning to form in their easy win over Arizona.
Quarterback Jared Goff threw for 424 passing yards and a touchdown, while running back Todd Gurley had 115 total yards and a score.
Since Seattle lost to Baltimore in October they have won all five games but each of them has been within one score, suggesting they could be there for the taking.

The Seahawks have the fourth-worst passing defence in the league and if Goff can get into a rhythm, the stacked Rams offence could keep their post-season hopes alive.
