Off ESPN.comThere have been 17 wild-card games in which the teams were divisional opponents who faced each other twice during the season. In nine of those cases, the franchises split the regular-season series. Eight times, one team had swept the season series, and five of those teams went on to win the third matchup, pretty much debunking the popular notion that it is next to impossible to defeat a team three times in the same season. Pittsburgh, which defeated Cleveland three times in 2002, is the last team to compete the trifecta.For the record, all four active NFC teams this weekend are coached by a Mike.

I wonder how many times the team that has won the first two matchups had to go on the road for the third matchup? Probably not very often.

If you need any less incentive to watch this game, you'll be happy to know that the ESPN "watch his feet" broadcast team is doing this game.

I really like Seattle here.Alexander controls the clock and exposes a poor D-line of the Rams.Seattle starts to put it together and could be dan, that they need to run and keep their own D off the field.Seattle 27St Louis 17

:rotflmao: Those idiots deserve this game.As for me, I'll take St. Louis, with Stephen Jackson having a large impact -- pending weather, of course, which could be favoring Seattle. Either team has one more game, max.

:yawn: Only two teams in NFL history made the playoffs after surrendering more points than they scored in the regular season. The NFC sends two such teams to the playoffs this year, 8-8 St. Louis (319 PF, 393 PA) and 9-7 Seattle (371 PF, 373 PA). :yucky: :X

If Seattle has any type of defense and stops the Falcons from their TD drive at the end of the game, the 04 Falcons would have allowed more points than they scored.

ANd then Seattle would not have, so the point is the same, lol....

And to think two weeks ago you could have wagered on the super bowl @ AFC -4 (-105). It's now up to AFC -6.5 (at -115) and showing no signs of slowing down.

Anyone know if this matchup breaks any records for fewest combined wins between two wild-card game opponents (17 total, in a 16-game schedule)?I honestly can't remember a 9-7 ever facing an 8-8 in the playoffs. The closest I can find is Washington (10-6) vs. Detroit (8-8) in 1999, and Indy (9-7) vs. San Diego (9-7) in 1995.

Wow I thought I'd be in the minority backing the Rams but I guess not. Talk about two teams that inspire zero confidence.As poorly as the Rams are coached it's the Seahawks who currently appear to be a team that wants to be eliminated. The NFL should let Carolina play Buffalo during the same time slot so there's actually a game featuring players and coaches who give a damn.

Snow is falling here in the Puget Sound. Looks like its going to be here through the weekend. Could be the most we've had in several years.

I'm hoping the Seahawks blow the rams right out of the stadium. I gotta admit though, Jackson scares the crap out of me. I hope they go with Faulk and not Jackson.

Bulger threw for something like 720 yards and Alexander ran for 'bout two fitty. Winner is the defensive team that makes ONE play. Even more frightening is the Rams Special Teams.Taking the Rams. I still don't think there's a team in the league they can't beat if they keep out the big mistake.Edit to Add: "big mistake" did not refer to Martz.

their points scored & allowed.

----------

Seahawks (11th offense, 21st defense) 11+21 = 32

Rams (21st offense, 23rd defense) 21+23 = 44

Translation: neither of these teams will win the super bowl.

Offensive/Defensive Efficienies:

-----------

O:Seahawks 5536 yards, 343 points = 16.14

D:Seahawks 5267 yards, 347 points = 15.18

O:Rams 5514 yards, 287 points = 19.21

D:Rams 5353 yards, 392 points = 13.66*

*includes week 17

Translation: The Rams have the distinction of having the worst offensive and defensive efficiency among all playoff teams. The Seahawks are better on both sides of the ball in this category.

----------

Ints-Ints Thrown

----------

Seahawks 22-17 = +5

Rams 6-20 = -14

The Rams also have the worst ratio among all playoff teams in this category as well.

Since these are division rivals, let's also look at that.

Amazingly, the Rams swept the season series 2-0.

The Rams lead 4-2 in this series since they became division rivals.

Despite the fact that the Seahawks have the all the superior numbers, they clearly seem to have matchup problems with the Rams.

Pick: Rams

Well there's gotta be at least one underdog winner on wildcard weekend, and I think this is it. To me Seattle are a bunch of dogs, and St Louis has their number this year. Can you say another come from behind victory?? Yep. Take the Rams.

Under the assumption that all four home teams aren't going to win (although this year it looks more likely than any in recent memory), I voted for St. Louis. Just not sure SEA has pulled it together enough to think they're a real threat. However, neither team plays good D and they know each other so well, this is very much a crap shoot.

 
Here's your one upset game of the week. I like the way the Rams fought back last week vs. Jets. I haven't seen that fight from the Seahawks all year.

Is S. Jackson playing in this game?? If so then, then i think the Rams take this game. I don't think Marshall will scare anyone and Jackson is the man that no one wants to see on the Seattle D. DaTruth

Is this the early game on Sunday?

I'm surprised so few people have mentioned the weather as a factor in the game. To me, along with home-field advantage, it's enough to help me go with Seattle.

This is the early game on Saturday...followed by NYJ/SD...Sunday, DEN/IND followed by MIN/GB.The weather is news to me, and while I know the Rams are a dome team, I don't normally associate Seattle as a cold weather team...they were a dome team until a few years ago. How does bad weather actually help Seattle? I'm not being sarcastic, I just don't really know.

Seattle is use to the wet and cold and I am sure they probably have practiced in it. The Rams are a dome team and have not played in adverse weather conditions in over a month.Week :

17 at home in dome vs Jets

16 at home in dome vs Eagles

15 at Arizona sunny and warm.

14 at Carolina

13 at home in dome vs 49'ers

12 at Greren Bay 45-17 got smacked around

Rams have not had a adverse game in the elements in over six weeks, and when they did they got killed.

I am guessing weather plays a factor and Seattle wins this one.

St.L is who I'm going with here. As a matter of fact I've been trying to figure out all week just why Sea is even favored in this one. :confused:

The latest I heard, Robinson practiced, but his role for the game was not yet determined. I personally think he will play, but he will not play a big role in the game.Any news on Wistrom playing in the game?

ESPN had some chick on the sideline said Robinson will suit up, most likely won't start. Dunno if that's just the opening play or longterm. Look for lots of PT for Rice.Winstrom is OUT.

According to the media and basically everywhere else, the last rights have been read and Seattle has been buried. They have nothing to lose! I look for them to play inspired ball.Seahawks 38 - Rams 31

I live in Seattle and the weather is best we've had all week (even though it was supposed to dump some snow last night). Forty degrees and sunny right now with a few clouds. A little windy, but more or less great football weather. BTW, the Seahawks keep the field covered with a big tent in the days leading up to a game so the field should be dry as well.

Faulk in the backfield, S Jackson in motion, 10 yard pass to Faulk. yikes!could this be the future for both these guys next year?
