'Thursday Night Football' live stream: Watch Rams vs. Seahawks online - SBNation.com
This Thursday Night Football matchup gives us two division rivals who couldn’t be further apart as franchises with the Los Angeles Rams heading to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. Yet this may be the week that gap begins to narrow — however small those steps are.

The dominant storyline once the game starts will come down to the Rams’ last-in-the-league offense versus Seattle’s top 10 defense, which is giving up the third-fewest points per game in the league (17.8). More specifically, going up against the Seahawks’ secondary is a lot to ask of any quarterback, let alone a rookie in Jared Goff (65.3 QB rating) who is making his first trip to CenturyLink Field.

That’s to say nothing of the playoff implications this game has for the Seahawks. After getting embarrassed in Green Bay last week, Seattle is out of the No. 2 seed in the NFC. A win on Thursday night could go a long way for a team that has one of the easier remaining schedules in the league.
