Seattle rolls in to St. Louis this evening sporting their best record at this point of the season in the history of the franchise. The Seahawks dominant defense, rated second in the NFL (282.1 yards allowed per game), has led the team to a 6 and 1 record thus far. Their sold record also leads the NFC West at a half a game over the San Francisco 49ers going in to tonight's game. On the other side of the ball the Seahawks offense has also been solid, ranked 4th in the NFL in scoring (27.3 PPG).
The Rams figure to have a harder go at it this evening following the loss of starting quarterback Sam Bradford for the season. The Rams sport a 3 and 4 record and will be starting back up quarterback Kellen Clemens this week. Bradford's loss should prove to be huge for the Rams as he was having a solid season behind center leading up to his injury. St. Louis will also lean heavily on their rookie running back Zac Stacy who has had a decent if unspectacular start to the season. He will of course face one of the most solid defenses against the run in Seattle, ranked 6th in the NFL.
