Seahawks vs. Rams

The Seattle Seahawks and the St. Louis Rams start the season off with an NFC West matchup.  The Seahawks have bolstered their offense with tight end Jimmy Graham joining quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch.  While the Rams have a new starting QB in Nick Foles.

Both teams are good defensively but the Seahawks will be missing starting strong safety Kam Chancellor who is holding out.  However, I still think the Seahawks are too strong for the Rams.  The extra fire power on offense will help the Seahawks slide past the Rams on the road.   NFL Picks
