Tale of the tape: Rams vs. Seahawks

Hawks holding opponents to 16 points a contest over the last six games

The last time the Los Angeles Rams played in the Pacific Northwest, they let one slip away in a 30-29 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5 last year.

Ex-Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein missed a 44-yard field goal wide right that would have won the game for Los Angeles.

Rams head coach Sean McVay returns to Lumen Field needing a win to punch L.A.’s ticket into the postseason.

The Rams (9-5) can clinch a playoff berth with a win or tie at Seattle (10-4). The can also reach the postseason with a loss or tie by the Chicago Bears or a win or tie by the Arizona Cardinals.

During McVay’s tenure, the Rams are 5-2 against the Seahawks and 2-1 at Seattle.

Seattle holds a 24-21 advantage in the all-time series.

The Seahawks are 1-point favorites.

It should be a decent day in terms of weather in Seattle on Sunday, with temperatures around 45 degrees and a slight chance of rain. So weather should not be a factor.

Bill Vinovich’s crew will officiate Sunday’s game.
