Mike Randle: Under 49

The Rams’ brutal defensive performance against Tampa Bay was a likely anomaly, having to adjust for short fields with Jared Goff’s four turnovers. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ group still ranks sixth-best in opponents’ completion percentage and ninth-best in rushing yards allowed per game.

Seattle’s defense has been even better against the run allowing only 79.5 yards per game, sixth-best in the league. The Seahawks have also improved each week against the pass, allowing only 10.7 yards per pass completion.

Seattle offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer will continue to feature a run-first offense that ranks sixth-slowest in the NFL, averaging 29.1 seconds per play. Last week’s game an exception, Thursday night games typically are ugly, lower-scoring battles. In addition, Goff’s 43.4% average fantasy point production in road games also leans me toward the under.
