- DK Metcalf finds himself back on the injury list for Week 5.
The Los Angeles Rams versus the Seattle Seahawks is shaping up to be quite entertaining. The Rams, fresh off a loss to the Arizona Cardinals, can’t wait to take the field in Week 5. The trouble is, they’re facing a team searching for wins as well. In a battle for the number two position, the Rams prepare to face the Seahawks.
Seattle comes off a win of their own against another member of the NFC West. After two straight losses, they finally claimed a win and look to continue the stretch.

The Rams are ready to bounce back after the Week 4 loss
Seeing Matthew Stafford and the Rams lose in that manner must’ve been tough on the team. They fought as hard as they could, but couldn’t find a way to defeat the Cardinals. As they prepare to face the Seahawks, only one thing is on their mind, a road win. They need to re-establish themselves as the best in the west and can do so against Seattle.
The key for the Rams here is limiting Russell Wilson’s moves in the pocket. If they can do that, they’ll be in good shape. With Aaron Donald on the defensive line, it shouldn’t be much trouble either. However, they can’t get ahead of themselves too early, especially against Seattle.
The Seahawks plan to search for their first home win
It’s been a strange start to the season for the Seahawks. They began with a huge win over the Indianapolis Colts but then lost two straight games. They picked it back up on the road against the San Francisco 49ers, but have yet to claim a home victory.

Sunday gives them a chance to get a win at home versus one of the best teams in the NFC. Unfortunately for them, this won’t be an easy task for them to accomplish. Finding a way to stop the interior rush of the Rams is paramount. They’ll also need to limit the production of the Rams wide receiving corps.
