Joe D'Amico's NFL MNF NFC West Game of the Year
St. Louis vs. Seattle,
12/12/2011 20:30 EDT,
Score: 13 - 30
Point Spread: -10/-106 Seattle
Tonight's winner is Seattle over St. Louis. This is my MNF NFC WEST Game of the Year.
At 5-7, Seattle is still very much alive to get to the post-season. The Hawk's have won 3 of their L4 SU, including home wins over Baltimore and Philadelphia. Seattle owns this matchup, winning 9 of the L10, including a 24-7 victory just 3 weeks ago, making them now covering the number in 8 of the L9 meetings. Seattle has a strong run defense, allowing just 103.5 YPG on the ground and only yielding 20.5 PPG overall. RB, Marshawn Lynch will tear up the 32nd ranked St Louis defense against the run. The Rams are dead-last in the NFL in scoring, averaging just 11.7 PPG. QB, Bradford is hampered by an ankle injury and his backup, AJ Feeley has a broken thumb. The units only bright spot is Steven Jackson, but the RB won't be a factor here vs. the Seattle stop unit. Since November, the Ram's have posted 20 points or less in 6 straight outings. They are 1-10 ATS their L11 game played vs. the NFC, 8-22 ATS their L30 games played against the NFC West, and 3-13 ATS their L16 games played overall. The Seahawks are 3-0-1 ATS their L4 games played on Mondays, 12-5 ATS their L17 games played as a home favorite, and 6-1 ATS their L7games played vs. the NFC. Take Seattle. Thank you.
