The Rams vs Seahawks live stream is coming up soon, and it catches these NFC West rivals coming off very different week four experiences. Los Angeles suffered their first loss of the season as Seattle took down San Francisco on the road. The Rams look to bounce back while the Seahawks look to build momentum in this NFL live stream.

The Rams (3-1) enter this game after what some might call a “let down game” as they beat Tom Brady and the Buccaneers 34-24 in week 3, only to get blown out by Kyler Murray and the Cardinals last week. The Cardinals handed the Rams a 37-20 loss at home. The game wasn’t even as close as that score would indicate as Arizona outscored L.A. 27-3 in the second and third quarters to pull away with the win.

Matthew Stafford had his worst game of the season completing just 26-of-41 for 280 yards with a touchdown and an interception for a passer rating of 89.5. It’s the first time he put up a rating lower than 101 as a Ram. "This is a prove-it [game],” Stafford said after the loss, "and you've got to go out there and [prove it] every time.”

Rams Inactives: Bryce Perkins (QB), Chris Garrett (OLB), Alaric Jackson (OT), Brycen Hopkins (TE), Bobby Brown (DL)

Seahawks Inactives: Johns Reid (CB), Chris Carson (RB), Jake Curhan (OT), Stone Forsythe (OT), Robert Nkemdiche (DT)

The Seahawks (2-2) had a much different week four compared to the Rams. Seattle was able to win their matchup with an NFC West division rival, beating the 49ers 28-21. Russell Wilson threw for 149 yards and two touchdowns while running for another. Wilson’s rushing touchdown came at the 5:32 mark of the third quarter, then after Seattle recovered a 49er fumble on the ensuing kickoff, Wilson miraculously escaped a sack to find Freddie Swain 13 yards down field for the Seahawks’ second touchdown in a minute and four seconds of game time.

Seattle features a couple of league leaders. Wilson has the highest passer rating in all of football with a 129.9 rating and he’s last starter standing yet to throw an interception this season. Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner leads the NFL in tackles with 54. On the other end of the spectrum, Wagner will also look to help his defense which is ranked as the worst in total yards allowed this season, find a way to prevent the Rams from having a bounce back game.

The Rams are 2.5-point road favorites over the Seahawks. The over/under is 54.5 points.

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS, and has RedZone in the Sports Extra add-on). You can get CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $65 per month.

Fubo.TV:a 7-day free trial

Sling TV

If you can stand to miss CBS games, Sling TV provides a middle ground. The $50 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has FOX and NFL Network for this game, as well as local NBC affiliates, and ESPN.

Amazon Prime subscribers get free access to the Rams vs Seahawks game as part of Thursday Night Football on Prime Video without ever needing to pay extra.

NFL Sunday Ticket: Rams vs Seahawks is not one of the games that DirecTV subscribers can watch via NFL Sunday Ticket.

You can also get NFL Sunday Ticket as a stand-alone service — but only if you live in an area that doesn't get DirecTV service.
