The Seattle Seahawks (10-4) host the Los Angeles Rams (9-5) at Lumen Field in Seattle for Week 16 of the 2020 season. Kickoff is at 1:25 p.m. PT on Sunday, December 27.
The Seahawks sit in first place in the NFC West and currently hold the third seed in the NFC. With a win on Sunday, they would clinch the NFC West title for the first time since 2016. The Rams are currently the fifth seed in the NFC. A win for L.A. would not only clinch a playoff berth (a tie would do the same), it would also put them back in the driver's seat for the division, as they would hold the head-to-head tiebreaker after winning both games vs. Seattle this season. Needless to say, both teams have plenty to play for this weekend.

A handful of facts to impress your friends when discussing the game from a safe, preferably virtual distance.
- A total of seven Seahawks were named to the Pro Bowl earlier this week: Russell Wilson, DK Metcalf, Bobby Wagner, Jamal Adams, Quandre Diggs, Nick Bellore and Tyler Ott. The number ties a franchise record (1984, 2005, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017), and is tied for the most in the league this year with Baltimore, Kansas City and Green Bay.
- Jason Myers has made a franchise-record 31 field goals in a row dating back to 2019.
- Seattle has scored 413 points this season, and with two games left to play, has a chance to set a franchise record. Here are the top three scoring teams in Seahawks history:
- 2005: 452
- 2018: 428
- 2015: 423
- DK Metcalf needs 65 yards to break Steve Largent's 1985 record for most yards in a single season with 1,288.
- Tyler Lockett needs 10 receptions to set the franchise record with 95 in a single season.
- Russell Wilson needs three touchdowns to pass Dan Marino for second place for the most passing touchdowns in a player's first nine seasons in NFL history with 267.
- With 27 pass attempts in Week 15, Russell Wilson passed Matt Hasselbeck for most in franchise history with 4,267. He now ranks first in Seattle history in every major passing category.
- Seahawks vs. Rams head-to-head:
- All-Time: 24-20 regular season, 0-1 postseason
- Most Recent: November 15, 2020 - The Rams won the first matchup of the 2020 season in L.A., 23-16. The Seahawks' sole touchdown came on a 13-yard rush from Alex Collins, who had been signed earlier in the month to add depth to a running backs group depleted by injuries. While highlights were few and far between during the Week 10 matchup, one came as time expired to end the first half, as Jason Myers nailed a 61-yard field goal, the longest in franchise history.
