The scoreboard: Only Cincinnati has scored fewer points than the Rams this season, but they have a chance to put points on the board through the air against the league's worst pass defense. QB Marc Bulger has put together his best games in the friendly confines of the Edward Jones Dome this season.

Seattle's slew of yardage: Last week, without their starting QB and a patchwork offensive line, the Seahawks gained 339 yards on the Patriots. If Seneca Wallace continues to be efficient and mistake-free, Seattle could get into a rhythm against the third-worst defense in the league.
