The Seahawks made a move at the trade deadline to acquire interior defensive lineman Leonard Williams. Did they give up too much considering some of the other moves made around the league for defensive line? We contrast the move with the 49ers acquisition of Chase Young. The move may have come at the perfect time after watching the Browns attack the middle of the field in both the run and the screen game. The defense came up big when they needed to though thanks to the (intentional?) head assist from Jamal Adams.
Which Baltimore Ravens team will the Seahawks face this week? One that dominated the Lions just a couple weeks ago? The one that looked like they barely needed to try hard on offense against the Cardinals? Or will they finally be worn down after multiple road trips in the last few weeks? It's going to be another big test for the defense to face off against Lamar, Gus Edwards and tight end Mark Andrews.
The Rams are continuing to make their way to the bottom of the NFC West after a big loss to the Cowboys and there is uncertainty around Matt Stafford moving forward with a thumb injury. But even with those concerns, Adam still likes the Rams to beat the Packers this upcoming weekend in our picks segment. A couple of national reporters need to do better based on a couple of articles written this past week. Better at life honors go out to a group for continuing to operate as usual and an NFL player giving the stiff arm to his former team.
