Seattle Seahawks (2-2) hosts the Los Angeles Rams (3-1) in the NFC West Division Playoff Thursday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL from 13.20 early Friday morning.
Seattle Seahawks, accustomed to being the best in the NFC West for so long, are in danger of slipping out of arguably the NFL’s toughest division.
However, Seahawks are encouraged by the fact that they beat the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday in a 28-21 win from Levy Stadium. According to Jamal Adams, the security team has regained their “swagger.”
That being said, Seattle’s defense has generated the most concern over four games this season, finishing last in legal yards per game (444.5), and even in this win over nines they were down 457 yards to 234 – a rookie introduction. quarterback Trey Lance with Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury slowing down San Francisco.
Pete Schrager said Good morning football (12pm, Sky Sports NFL weekdays): “Adams said, ‘We got our swagger back,’ but I watched this game and didn’t feel like it was Sehawks’ defense in the old days.
“They beat rookie Trey Lance in his first game after being thrown.
“This Sehahawks defense is best shown tonight because they were thrilled for the first three weeks. They won last week, but have they regained their swagger?
“This is a challenge for Adams and his defense. I think that on [Rams quarterback] Matthew Stafford is in this game and I have a feeling the Rams are unhappy with how things went last Sunday. [in defeat] against Arizona.
“They will have a game plan. Has Seahawks got enough to stop them? Does this defense have a ridge?
“I have no doubt that Russell Wilson will score a few points and they will score with DC Metcalfe and Tyler Lockett – they always do that – but the defense has something to show me.
