NFL Power Rankings Week 18 2022, Seattle Seahawks VS Los Angeles Rams
Seattle Seahawks Form
The Seattle Seahawks improved their regular season record to 8-8 last week by beating the New York Jets 23-6. They’ve gone 5-5 in their past ten matches and 2-3 in the last five at home.
The Seattle Seahawks rank ninth in the NFL’s offensive rankings, averaging 24.3 points this season and 22.5 points at the Lumen Field. The defense, however, has lagged behind compared to most of the league’s defensive lines, allowing 24.1 points per game this year,.
2021 was a year of doom and gloom for the Seattle Seahawks. A 7-10 record left the home team fourth in the NFC West and out of the playoffs. However, they entered this season billed as an early postseason threat, and judging by their 8-8 start this time around, they’re on target to do just that.
Los Angeles Rams Form
The Los Angeles Rams aren’t in the best of shape at the moment after slipping to a 31-10 defeat to the Los Angeles Chargers last time out. To add insult to injury, they’ve lost their last six road matches. Their overall record for the last ten games is 2-8.
The Los Angeles Rams’ offense has been in a slump this season; from ranking seventh in the league last year with 27.0 points per game, it has only put up 18.2 points in the current one. A middle-of-the-pack defense is what the Los Angeles Rams have to offer ahead of their latest road trip, with 22.8 points allowed across 16 matches so far.
The Los Angeles Rams will not be making the playoffs this season. While they were expected to struggle, being winless at 5-11 means there is little hope left for them this year. The best they can do now is focus on getting a strong pick in next year’s draft order.
