Los Angeles R at Seattle
One thing that both conferences have in common right now is that, top to bottom, both West Divisions are the toughest. The unfortunate part of that is that each good team has to play the other three teams in its division a total of six times. Last week, Seattle was able to beat a San Francisco team that is struggling with injuries. Meanwhile, Los Angeles, fresh off defeating the defending champs, had to postpone planning their Superb Owl parade after getting humbled by red-hot Arizona.
Which brings us to this game.
Both teams have potent offenses. Seattle's defense has struggled mightily this season, which should allow LA's offense to put up some big numbers. Despite struggling against Arizona, LA's defense should be able to put up a decent fight against Seattle's attack. This game has the potential to be high-scoring, and that difference of one or two possessions will be decided by LA's defense.
Winner: Los Angeles
