NFL picks and predictions, Week 8: Seahawks vs. Rams 2013

Kevin Casey

The Seahawks will face off against the Rams on Monday Night Football.

The Seahawks will travel to St. Louis to take on the Rams in Week 8. Seattle is coming off 10 days of rest after defeating the Cardinals, while the Rams were dismantled at the hands of the Panthers in Week 7. During the loss to Carolina, the Rams lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford to a torn ACL. Backup Kellen Clemens will start for the Rams against the Seahawks.

With the loss of Bradford and Seattle's tough defense, the Rams are 10.5-point underdogs to the Seahawks at home. The CBS Sports panel of eight believes those numbers work for this game. The panel voted for Seattle in a clean sweep with and without spread. The Yahoo! Sports two-man crew also was totally in favor of the Seahawks.

The SB Nation crew of five also gave the Seahawks a full-slate of votes for the win. Between the three publications, the Seahawks outweighed the Rams in picks 15-0.

The Rams will host the Seahawks on Monday Night Football in Week 8 at 8:40 p.m. ET on ESPN.
