Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio is taking the Rams to spoil the Seahawks season in Week 18 with a final score of 24-20. "Between Bobby Wagner returning to Seattle, Baker Mayfield making a closing argument for a starting job, and Sean McVay possibly eyeing a ticket to TV, the Rams pull the upset against a Seattle team that seems miffed by not having Lions-Packers play at the same time."

The Bleacher Report Staff panel came to a final consensus that the Seahawks will defeat the Rams at home in a tight 24-21 game in Week 18. "The Seahawks will be fully invested in this game because they can clinch the No. 7 seed in the NFC playoff picture with a win plus a Green Bay Packers loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday night. If wideout Tyler Lockett plays through a leg injury, Seattle could find a lot of success throwing against the Rams' 22nd-ranked pass defense."

Around The NFL Editor Gregg Rosenthal is taking Seattle to beat Los Angeles 27-24 in Week 18 to up the teams chances in making the playoffs. "With Kenneth Walker III running well again and Al Woods' return helping to key another good stretch by the Seahawks defense, the 12s should go home happy."

Pro Football Talk's Michael Davis Smith is going against his colleague Mike Florio and is predicting the Seahawks win over the Rams 21-14 in Week 18. "The Seahawks are still in wild card contention, and they're going to handle their half of the job with a win over the Rams."

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports NFL is backing the Seahawks to score a lot of points and beat the Rams 27-20 in Week 18. "The Seahawks need to win this and hope the Lions beat the Packers to get into the playoffs. The Seattle defense played well last week against the Jets, which I think that will carry over here against a Rams offense that struggled against the Chargers. Geno Smith will also have a good day. "

Bill Bender of The Sporting News doesn't like Baker Mayfield's play on the road therefore he likes the Seattle beating Los Angeles at home in Week 18. "This is a precarious position for the Seahawks. Seattle needs to win first and hope the Lions pull off the upset on the road against the Packers. Seattle is 4-4 S/U at home this season, and Baker Mayfield's two road starts have not gone well. He averages 121.5 passing yards in those two starts."

NFL On NBC's Chris Simms predicted on his radio show that the Seahawks will defeat the Rams in their final regular season game. "I have the Seahawks to win but I do think the Rams hang around on this one, I'm going to go 24-20 Seattle."
