SEATTLE — Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams will battle in a NFC Wild-card NFL game at Lumen Field on Saturday and you can watch streaming coverage, which kicks-off at 4:40 p.m. ET.
NFC Wild-card: No. 3 Seattle Seahawks vs. No. 6 Los Angeles Rams @ 4:40 p.m. ET.
Saturday, Jan. 9, Fox | Opening line: Seahawks -4.5; O/U 42
Fox Network will provide live television broadcast, with FoxSportsGo streaming the action live for those using their streaming devices, such as Amazon Fire TV, or Firesticks. The Opening line for this encounter sees the Seahawks at 4.5 point favorites with the over/under listed at 42 points.
Seattle (12-4) comes into this matchup as the No. 3 seed after finishing behind the Green Bay Packers and the New Orleans Saints during the regular season standings.
Los Angeles (10-6), meanwhile is the sixth seed entering this weekend’s opening round of the NFC playoffs and it is yet to decide on whether starting quarterback Jared Goff or backup John Wolford will lead the offense against the Seahawks.
Goff, who injured his thumb in the second half of Seattle’s 20-9 victory over the Rams in Week 16, is apparently back in training after he missed last Sunday’s 18-7 win over Arizona.
During his absence, Wolford directed the offense and threw for 231 yards to help Los Angeles clinched a playoff berth.
“You talk to Jared and then you’d kind of just take it a day at a time,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. “I know that he’s in the mindset and the mentality of trying to prepare himself to get ready to play a game.”
Meanwhile, the Seahawks have won four straight coming into this NCF Wild-card weekend battle but split their regular-season meetings with the Rams.
Seattle won the first meeting against Los Angeles, 23-16, on Nov. 15, but the Rams returned to take the second matchup 20-9 on Dec. 27.
The Seahawks are heading into this game having won 10 straight home playoff games with their last home postseason loss coming in 2004 when they were defeated 27-20 by the Rams in a wild-card round game.
