Local and national media predict the winner of Sunday's game between the Seattle Seahawks (4-4) and Los Angeles Rams (8-1) in Week 10 of the 2018 NFL season.
Elliot Harrison, **NFL.com**: Rams 31, Seahawks 25
Harrison: This has the potential to be a fun game, given how tough the Seahawks played the Ramsin Seattle last month, as well as the fact they beat Sean McVay's group in Los Angeles last season. While the defensive personnel isn't as stout for the visiting Seahawks this time around, that unit has played tougher than most analysts anticipated. One matchup to watch will be Russell Wilson and his receivers against what has been a wobbly Rams secondary in recent weeks. On the other side, can Seattle halt Todd Gurley from ripping off chunk runs? I mentioned in last week's Game Picks that the Seahawks were allowing too much real estate per rush. The Chargers exploited that with Melvin Gordon running wild. Well, Gurley leads the league in scrimmage yards (1,230) and touchdowns (16) -- two categories he owned last season. The only players to go back-to-back in those two stats: Jim Brown (1958 and '59) and Don Hutson (1941 and '42). Instagram went nuts over Hutson.
Brady Henderson, **ESPN.com**: Rams 31, Seahawks 24
Henderson: The Seahawks nearly knocked off the Rams in Week 5 by rushing for a season-high 190 yards and winning the turnover battle 2-0. That winning formula will be difficult to replicate in the rematch now that running back Chris Carson is looking iffy with a sore hip and right guard D.J. Fluker is dealing with a calf injury. They're arguably the two most important members of a running game that is the best shot at upsetting the Rams.
Lindsey Thiry, **ESPN.com**: Rams 34, Seahawks 24
Thiry: The Rams are coming off their first loss of the season, have a clean bill of health and will be plenty motivated to shut down the Seahawks after allowing Seattle to run all over them five weeks ago. The Rams' offense continues to fire on all cylinders behind Todd Gurley, who leads the league in rushing and touchdowns.
Pete Prisco, **CBSSports.com**: Rams 26, Seahawks 23
Prisco: The Rams suffered their first loss last week, and now must regroup against a division rival that is coming off a loss. The Seahawks will pound it on the ground against a Rams defense that has been vulnerable to the run. They will try and keep Jared Goff off the field, and it will work to keep the game close. But the Rams will win it.
Michael David-Smith, **ProFootballTalk.com**: Rams 28, Seahawks 17
MDS: The Rams can basically wrap up the NFC West with a win, and I think they'll do exactly that against a Seahawks team that is playing hard but can't quite compete with the best teams in the NFL.
Mike Florio, **ProFootballTalk.com**: Rams 31, Seahawks 21
Florio: It's the last chance for the Seahawks to position themselves for a run at the division title. Come Monday they'll be thinking about their last chance to position themselves for a run at a wild card.
Jim Moore, **710Sports.com**: Rams 34, Seahawks 27
Moore: I have a feeling we're going to see Wilson scrambling around more than he has been recently, and making plays downfield as usual. The Rams will probably win because they have the superior team, and they're playing at home, but I still feel like the Seahawks will be within striking distance at the end.
