NFL Week 17 and we will see the St Louis Rams travel to the west coast to take on the Seattle Seahawks. The game is scheduled for a 4:25 PM (Eastern) start time and it will be televised live on FOX. Currently the odds for the game have Seattle favored by 11 points, while the total sits at 42.5. Check out Sportsbook Spy to find out what side the Public is taking on all today's games.
Free Analysis: St. Louis, winner of four of five following last Sunday's 28-13 victory at Tampa Bay, will miss the playoffs for the eighth straight season, but the team arrives at CenturyLink Field with a chance for its first four-game road winning streak since going 8-0 in 2001. The Rams (7-7-1) can also post their first winning record since going 12-4 nine years ago. St. Louis, 4-0-1 against West rivals, defeated Seattle 19-13 on Sept. 30. We're going to finish up strong," said Fisher, who took over a team that had two wins last season and 15 total in the previous five. “This is a chance to finish out on a winning note and a chance to be undefeated in the division. If we're able to do that, I'd say then we can jump into the offseason with optimism for next year." The defense has been solid all season, and the offense has shown flashes, though too few. Quarterback Sam Bradford continues to make too many costly mistakes but has passed for 3,450 yards with 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. It's uncertain if running back Steven Jackson will return to St. Louis - he has a player option to get out of his contract at season's end. If it is his last game in a Rams uniform, he could end it in style with an eighth consecutive 1,000-yard season. He is 10 yards shy of that mark. St. Louis could put plenty of pressure on Wilson as it tied for third in the league with 46 sacks after recording five last Sunday. The Rams also had four INTs in that victory. That effort was highlighted by Janoris Jenkins' third returned pick for a TD, which tied him for the NFL rookie record and leaves him one shy of equaling the league's single-season mark.
Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson threw a season-high four touchdowns in last Sunday's 42-13 victory over San Francisco, but the Seahawks (10-5) still trail the 49ers for the West lead. Seattle has clinched a wild-card spot, but the only way it will win the division for the first time since finishing in a 7-9 tie with St. Louis in 2010 is to record its eighth consecutive home win over the Rams, and for Arizona, loser of 10 of 11, to defeat San Francisco on Sunday. The Seahawks will face a Rams defense that's limited four of its last five opponents to 17 points or fewer, but Seattle has scored 150 over its last three contests. It's the most points scored by an NFL team during a three-game span since the Los Angeles Rams tallied 163 from Oct. 22-Nov. 5, 1950. "I can't remember a team that's averaging 50 points a game over three consecutive weeks. So that's very impressive," said Rams coach Jeff Fisher, who is one win shy of 150. Wilson has thrown for eight scores and rushed for three more during the winning streak. He needs one TD pass to tie Peyton Manning's rookie record of 26. Marshawn Lynch, who ran for 118 yards and a score in the Sept. 30 defeat, needs 10 yards to become the third Seattle back - and first since Shaun Alexander set a franchise-high with 1,880 in 2005 - to reach 1,500.
Free Pick: I am going with the over here. This Seahawk offense has been unstoppable of late and If San Fran couldn’t stop them then I don’t think the Rams will be able to either. This is the last game of the year for the rams and I expect them to go all out on offense to win this one. I look for around 50 points in this one.
