Rookie pass rusher Chris Long: The second overall pick in this year's draft got his first career sack against the Giants last week and will look to add to that this Sunday. If he is able to disrupt Seattle's rhythm passing attack, the Rams will stand a chance to get in the win column and keep Seattle out of it.
Who's lining up wide for Seattle:Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren is in his 17th season as a head coach and he says he has never experienced a situation in which the team's top six wide receivers went down, a dilemma he is currently facing. The team will look to recent acquisitions Billy McMullen, Keary Colbert and Koren Robinson to pay immediate dividends.
