Seattle Seahawks gear up for crunch NFC West showdown

After a brilliant start to their 2020 NFL campaign, the Seattle Seahawks are battling hard to seal a playoff spot ahead of their NFC counterparts. Quarterback Russell Wilson, along with wide receivers Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, have all been impressive all season. But now coach Carroll needs a combined team effort to get through two crucial fixtures in the coming weeks.

The Seahawks are unbeaten in their last two league encounters. A win on Sunday will put them in pole position to win the NFC West. But the question is can they pull through when it matters the most? We’ll have to wait and see.

Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey fired up for the Los Angeles Rams

Sean McVay’s Los Angeles Rams are having a strong outing in the NFL this year. Not many expected them to challenge for the NFC West title in a division that also consists of teams like Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers. Franchise quarterback Jared Goff along with wide receivers Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods will be key for the Rams on Sunday against the Seahawks.

But the major emphasis to pull off a win will rely on the shoulders of defensive stars, DE Aaron Donald and CB Jalen Ramsey. If the duo manage to keep the likes of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett away from the Endzone, the Rams might just sneak away with the NFC West title.
