Rams weirdly pound Seahawks in Seattle...? Head on a swivel, boys.

QB play.

Division rivals will always be tough.

O-Line play will determine this game. Can we protect Purdy and run the ball?

The Rams and Seahawks game didn't go as any of us would have thought. I'm not quite sure how the Rams were able to manufacture points. But what was obvious was the Donald is back from injury and still a menace. But we know who will show up to Levi's South. This will be a defacto home game with white jerseys. And we have momentum and confidence. But you can argue they have confidence too. Should be a good game, but we're probably still a +7 or maybe a +6.5 hook favorite.
The Rams rookie WR Puka Nacus look like a late rd steal yesterday in his debut. If this guy is good and teams with Kupp when he comes off IR, McVay's bunch will be a problem all season long. CB after is the defense most obvious weakness so they can be had against the better WRs in this league.

Why are people surprised the Rams won? You could see it a mile away that Seattle might take a step back. Genie Smith mediocre and over achieved last year. Stafford is still great and exposed them
Need to protect Purdy, cause Donald looks like his old self, I hope we can block him long enough to find BA, Deebo, Kittle, Jauan, CMC, etc..... And our defense dominate like they did yesterday, gonna be a good game, but gotta get after Stafford, no Kupp, but Tutu Atwell, Van Jefferson, and Nacua look good at WR for them, and Higbee is a good TE.

Honestly the Rams always have Seattles number.

There is truth to this. I always say division rivals know each other. Which is why the cardinals will never be a gimme because they know us etc. You have to come prepared for these games. Seattle looked flat and their o-line wasn't great yesterday, but its a long season.

Hopefully Brock doesn't squeal like Geno and the rest of us seeing Donald coming unblocked

Iirc, seattle lost two starters on the offensive line.

Seattle also has to play the lions on the road during week 2.

Don't want to overstate but a win against Rams puts the other NFC West teams in an early hole.

No surprise. Rams always seem to have the seahawks number.

Rams are going to be tougher than people think.

That said 9ers should be able to win this one.

McVay knows how to attack the Oline and very familiar with what KS tries to do.

Look for Deebo and Kittle to have a big day.
