The Rams are better this year than last, particularly on defense, but a porous o-line and a distinct lack of reliable receivers not named Amendola should prove fatal for St. Louis' offense.  Leroy Hill is questionable for the game with a calf injury, but his possible absence is more than made up for by Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold being ruled out for the game.  I'm looking forward to seeing how often Bradford gets hit on his blindside by Clemons.

For Seattle, the starting lineup has changed once again (what else is new?), with James Carpenter playing at left guard and McQuistan likely sliding over to fill in at right guard for an injured John Moffitt.  The news isn't all bad though, as both Doug Baldwin and Breno Giacomini are listed as probable (there was some doubt earlier in the week as to whether Giacomini would be able to play).  Rams CB Cortland Finnegan and DEs Chris Long and Robert Quinn will likely cause some problems, but keep an eye out for first round pick DT Michael Brockers.  He missed the first three games of the season with an ankle sprain, but the coaches in St. Louis are expecting great things from him.  Assuming he lives up to everyone's expectations, he could be a headache for the Seahawks o-line for years to come.
