The Seattle Seahawks made a huge trade Friday, sending wideout Percy Harvin to the NY Jets for a mid-round 2015 draft pick. That leaves us to watch Seahawks vs Rams online free live streaming today to see if Seattle leans even more on Marshawn Lynch. Against the 1-4 St. Louis Rams, that could pay off for the suddenly vulnerable Seahawks.
Seattle (3-2) has been proved beatable through five games, highlighted by last week’s 23-30 loss at home to the Dallas Cowboys. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson passed for 126 yards, 53 of those on a single first-quarter pass to receiver Jermaine Kearse. Wide receiver Percy Harvin had three receptions but netted zero total yards.
It wasn’t that performance that compelled Harvin’s trade to the NY Jets, but rumors of locker room discord and even physical confrontations with the offense. Without Harvin in today’s Rams game, the Seattle Seahawks will rely much more on running back Marshawn Lynch, who had 61 yards last week against the Cowboys.
The St. Louis Rams (1-4) are the right team for Seattle to go that route. Through five games the Rams defense is allowing nearly 140 yards per game, 26th in the league, and allowing 30 points. Without Harvin, and with Lynch and QB Russell Wilson both legitimate rushing threats, look for Seattle’s second-ranked ground game to be the focus as you watch Seahawks vs Rams online free live today.
As for the Rams, quarterback Austin Davis hopes Seattle’s suddenly human secondary allows him to improve after a rough Monday Night game. Seattle has a great run defense, but against the pass this season the Seahawks are allowing 252.2 passing yards per game, 19th in the league.
Davis played well in his first three starts. Though the Rams won only one of those games, Davis passed for 937 yards and six touchdowns with just two interceptions. Last Monday against the 49ers, Davis finished 21-of-42 for 236 yards, one touchdown and an interception. If Seattle’s “Legion of Boom” isn’t clicking today, the Seahawks game could give him a chance to put Monday’s 49ers game behind him.
