As noted earlier in the week, NFL experts at SB Nation, Fox Sports, CBS Sports, ESPN and NFL.com all gave minimal thought to moving the St. Louis Rams up in their Week 11 NFL Power Rankings. For Sunday's matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, the expert panels at CBS Sports and Yahoo! have actually shown some confidence in the Rams.
The five-man panel at CBS Sports has a 4-1 split in favor of the Rams, with Dave Richard being the lone dissenter in the group. Richard is the second-most accurate prognosticator on the panel. The three-man panel at Yahoo! is split 2-1 in favor of the Rams, but the most accurate pundit on the panel, Mike Silver, has gone with the Seahawks.
It may be that the experts are more unimpressed with the Seahawks that they are impressed with the Rams, but the Rams have shown some improvement in the recent weeks. The good news for Rams fans is that the Seahawks have been terrible on the road so far this season (1-4).
