The Rams vs Seahawks live stream begins today at 4:40 p.m. ET / 1:40 p.m. PT Saturday January 9 on FOX

The Rams vs Seahawks live stream is about to begin, and it features divisional opponents taking their rivalry to the postseason. In their two matchups this season, the home team has won each time. The Seahawks will hold that advantage for this NFL live stream, Saturday at Lumen field where they have lost just once this season.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson is coming off a career year with 40 touchdown passes and will be in pursuit of his second Super Bowl ring. Wilson has made the playoffs in eight of his nine seasons in the league with a record of 9-6 over that span. The (10-6) Rams visit the (12-4) Seahawks today as 3.5-point underdogs.

Wilson leads one of the best passing attacks in the NFL. Seattle is the only team in the league with two wide receivers that have over 1,000 yards and at least 10 touchdowns. Those WRs are second year wide receiver D.K. Metcalf and 5th year wide out Tyler Lockett. Metcalf was named to his first Pro Bowl this season.  

As good as their passing attack has been, the Seahawks’ pass defense has been awful. Seattle allowed the second most passing yards this season and a weak secondary could be exactly what the Rams need to face this week.

The Rams franchise quarterback Jared Goff missed last week’s 18-7 playoff clinching win over the Cardinals with a broken thumb on his throwing hand. Rookie John Wolford started in Goff’s place and was less than spectacular. With Goff out, Los Angeles’ defense stepped up recording a safety and a defensive touchdown on a Troy Hill 84-yard interception return. The Rams are optimistic that Goff will be ready to go come game time. LA wide receiver Robert Woods said Goff was, “slinging the ball pretty well” at practice this week.
