Jeremy Lane likely out for Seahawks vs. Rams

Goff, a second-year player out of Cal who was the first overall pick in the 2010 draft, is second in the National Football League in passer rating with seven touchdowns and one interception.

When Goff takes the field Sunday against Sherman and the Seahawks, he'll do so a changed man while leading a Rams team that's undergone a remarkable transformation over the a year ago and won three of their first four games.

OK. It might be premature for such a bold proclamation. Come Sunday, he'll be trying to stop one.

The Los Angeles Rams fooled a lot of fans last September and early October, starting 3-1 with Jeff Fisher in charge and Case Keenum at quarterback.

Now, the two teams will meet for the first time since the Rams' meteoric rise began, and the Seahawks will be traveling to Los Angeles to see if they can put a dent in the Rams' divisional lead before it's too late. A second-year vet out of Texas Tech, Jackson played in three games for the Raiders last season. He's working in an offense perfectly suited to accentuate his skill set, and the Rams have unleashed Todd Gurley in a way that's made him a Player of the Year candidate. They have developed a solid run game and Jared Goff has shown why he was the first overall pick past year.

As of late, the battle for the NFC West is between the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle, but both teams run into trouble against the Rams, who now sit atop the NFC West standings. Or how he vainly looked up field for open receivers - there were none - before taking off running down the sideline.

Jefferson played three games for Seattle a year ago, suffering a broken thumb early in the season and then an ACL injury in practice in October that knocked him out for the rest of the season.

This game is projected to be a close one, which makes sense considering how talented these two offenses are.

And now? Now there's the distinct possibility that the Rams might actually be good.

If Seattle can win on the road for the first time this season, they will be leaders in the clubhouse.

Los Angeles is off to an excellent start under the direction of first-year head coach Sean McVay.

So while it's early, this certainly looks like the game that will decide the direction of the entire division. The difference is going to be turnovers as the Seahawks will do just enough to win that key statistic and escape with a come-from-behind win over the Rams. "But I think he's making great progress". Not only that, but the Rams defensive line has tended to manhandle Seattle up front. However, the Rams only give up 26.3 points per game. If some people aren't sure about how long they can keep up this run of form, they may wish to use a tipping website such as Oddschecker and take advantage of some of the free bets on offer to minimize their risk.

The Rams have surprisingly jumped to the fifth ranked passing attack. Win, and Seattle enters its bye week in a tie for first and knowing the Rams still have to come to Seattle on December 17. Goff has had plenty of time on his passes to get the ball out. Seriously, it might be that simple.

Jared Goff has been extremely accurate in that part of the field, completing 70 percent of his passes with six touchdowns and no picks, but executing the offense down there is crucial. The Seahawks will still be hard to slay, but that offensive line in Seattle is such a mess that they're more vulnerable than ever.
