Rams Defense Faces Challenge Against Seahawks
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams' next opponent is on a nearly unprecedented scoring run.
The Seattle Seahawks have averaged 50 points per game in the past three weeks and play host to the Rams on Sunday in the regular-season finale.
The 150 points are the most since the Los Angeles Rams of 1950 in a three-game span and this week the Rams must find a way to keep Seattle from continuing to pile up points.
Defensive end Chris Long dismissed the idea the Seattle offense is the best in the league, right now.
Instead, he contends it is the "best on the planet" and the Rams must slow down the Seahawks.
St. Louis is coming off its fourth victory in five games on the strength of five turnovers at Tampa Bay, including four interceptions.
The Rams have 17 on the season, ninth best in the league, but are second worst in fumble recoveries with just four.
That's partly why they're not counting on getting turnovers against the Seahawks.
