The Seattle Seahawks (6-1) visit the St. Louis Rams (3-4)  for an NFC West clash on Monday Night Football. The game starts at 8:30 PM on ESPN. People in St. Louis should count themselves lucky to have an alternative sporting event to attend Monday (the World Series will be in St. Louis that night), because this is a laughable matchup. Seattle is going to absolutely steamroll the Rams, humiliate St. Louis on national television and solidify themselves as the best team in the NFC. This game could have been interesting had Sam Bradford not gotten injured. Instead, the Rams have to put Kellen Clemons under center against the Seahawks’ defense, which is the second best in the NFL. The Legion of Boom (Photo: bleacherreport.net) Clemons poses literally no threat to the Legion of Boom. None. At all. And he’s not a running threat either, so Seattle’s front seven is bound to put him on the ground several times. Clemons won’t be the only stifled offensive player, though. The Rams’ running game, averaging 70 yards a game, is going to look so bad against Seattle’s defense that I might actually pity St. Louis more than cheer for Seattle’s success. It looks even better for Seattle and bleaker for St. Louis when ball possession flips. St. Louis can’t stop the run (they allow 126 yards a game), and Marshawn Lynch, as a result, is going to have a field day. Russell Wilson may not have to throw more than 25 passes on Monday. I hope he does, because the Rams’ pass defense allows around 250 passing yards a game. Wilson’s also my fantasy quarterback, and I’d like to stay atop the standings in my league. But I digress. Percy Harvin will not be able to partake in Monday night’s festivities, unfortunately, but he’s very close to joining the potent Seattle offense. Perhaps Seattle fans will get to see the explosive receiver on the field next Sunday. Regardless, Seattle is sure to keep on rolling without Harvin in the lineup. There is simply no reason why the Seahawks shouldn’t annihilate St. Louis. In fact, if the Seahawks win by less than two touchdowns, then this game will be a disappointment for me. It sounds harsh to St. Louis, but these teams are very noticeably lopsided in terms of talent. Seattle is a team firing on all cylinders, and the Rams look doomed without Bradford at quarterback. Let’s get real: the Rams legitimately thought about bringing Brett Favre back to the NFL to lead their offense. That says it all, really. The Rams have no identity on offense, and they’ll struggle mightily against the superb Seahawks. Seattle fans will enjoy kicking off their work week by watching the Hawks dominate on the national stage once again.
