St. Louis Rams Vs. Seattle Seahawks Will Air Sunday Night On NBC

The St. Louis Rams and the Seattle Seahawks will play, next Sunday, for the NFC West title—and according to the Associated Press that game will take place at 7:20 on NBC's Sunday Night Football, the Rams' first nationally televised game all season. Unclear in the early press is whether NBC plans on doing this because they think it'll be an exciting game or because they think the NFC West title being contested by a team with nine losses is kind of hilarious.

The Rams are coming off a convincing 25-17 win against the San Francisco 49ers, one in which Sam Bradford allayed concerns about a possible late season slump and the Rams' receiving corps allayed concerns that Danario Alexander was a myth propagated by one of those Prophesies of Nostradamus docu-dramas on the History Channel. The Seahawks lost convincingly to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who got 164 yards on just 18 carries from LeGarrette Blount. Fantasy football players and hubris-jinx non-believers take note: Josh Freeman was 21-for-26 with 237 yards and five touchdowns.

The St. Louis Rams had a nice run on the road after Thanksgiving, but it was against the pre-Tim Tebow Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals, the only team even the most hardened Tim Tebow hater would admit has a worse quarterback situation. Their 23-20 loss to the 49ers in San Francisco, a real heartbreaker, is what they'll be looking to avoid in primetime.
