The past week has not been a stellar one for the NFL, with arrest warrants and substance abuse violations dominating the off season news. Here’s a look at the latest developments around the NFC.
Jeff Fisher has the Rams on the cusp of their first winning season since 2003. That said, he realizes how tough it will be to beat a Seattle team that has scored 150 points the past three weeks and possesses the No. 1 scoring defense in the league. A fake field goal is not likely to be enough this time.
The banged-up 49ers play four of the final six on the road, the reeling Cardinals seem poised to lose their sixth in a row and the Rams have a tough schedule that seemingly will preclude them from competing. The NFC West figures to come down to Seattle and San Francisco on Dec. 23.
Arizona, which appears to be fading after a surprising 4-0 start, goes to Minnesota, which is 3-0 at home. St. Louis is 3-0 at home but faces the potent Packers. Both games could potentially impact where Seattle sits in the division.
Jeff Fisher can’t like his team’s chances against NFC defensive player of the week Chris Clemons and the Seahawks’ No. 1 scoring defense.
The Seahawks play the Rams tonight at CenturyLink Field. Buckle up and pack your patience.
