Last season they finished with a dismal 4-12 record which was the fifth worst in the league. If they can keep the defense from getting exhausted out by the Seahawks' fast paced style, they should have a very good chance of winning. There is another factor looming large as the two NFC West rivals matchup - the division could be at stake on Sunday afternoon. Many fans and media members are calling the Seahawks reign of terror in the NFC West over, but they aren't paying attention. It does not matter that there is still 75 percent of the football season remaining.

When the Seahawks take the field Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles they will take on a 3-1 Los Angeles Rams team that has proved to be a hard opponent for Pete Carroll led teams in the past.

Offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur called the upcoming game against the Seahawks "a great measuring stick for our offense and a big-time challenge".

The Seahawks started the season by losing their first two away games and winning their first two home games. The Rams cannot only take complete control of the NFC West with a win, they can propel themselves up to the upper eschalon of NFC teams. Seahawks had NFL's top offense for past two games, racking up 910 yards vs. Tennessee and Indy.

But whether the Rams are 3-1, or 1-3, those who make such decisions look like they didn't think this through.

As for the offensive play-calling, the Seahawks would love to show more balance if they had the blocking up front to facilitate it. Seattle has throttled Gurley in three games against him.

The Rams have dominated the Seahawks in head-to-head matchups in years past due to their defensive line.

"There will be some things that will be a little bit different this week, " said Carroll, according to the Seattle Times. Joyner was unable to practice at all this week and was listed as doubtful on the official injury report released by the club on Friday. Several outlets reported the Seahawks' left tackle had suffered a bruised heart, but coach Pete Carroll said Monday that was "made up".

The Rams want to go for the jugular early then force the Seahawks to operate from behind against an improving Rams defense in a loud, intimidating setting of the Coliseum. He burst onto the scene in 2015 as an undrafted rookie stepping in when Marshawn Lynch was injured and electrified Seattle's run game. The Rams need to be able to contain Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, and prevent him from scrambling, so stopping Seattle's running game will be huge. The Seahawks have the potential to win the Super Bowl this year, which has been the case during every year of the Russell Wilson era.

The Seahawks succeeded in avenging their 9-3 defeat to the Rams earlier in the 2016 season.

Showcase the playground: In the likely event Donald and the Rams burst through Seattle's line, Wilson will have to escape, elude and make his improvisational plays to bail out the offense.

The Rams have surprisingly jumped to the fifth ranked passing attack. And McKissic flashed speed that's been missing from the run game with his 30-yard TD.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Seahawks CB Justin Coleman.
