    It's ON! WHere's Butters, because someone's about to get SERVED!


    Seattle at St. LouisWhen: 1:00 PM ET
    Watch: FOX
    Preview


    After breaking down film of both teams, Scouts Inc. offers 10 insights on this week's Seahawks-Rams matchup.


    1. Seattle needs to learn to win on the road: The Seahawks had one road win in 2009 (at St. Louis). They're 0-1 on the road this year, with seven more games away from Qwest -- if the Seahawks can win a few of them, they can contend in a weak NFC West.
    2. Seattle's special teams are, well, special: Golden Tate and Leon Washington are killing opponents on kick and punt returns. If they can keep that up, getting good field position against a still-young Rams team will lead to success.
    3. Protect the pocket: The Rams' pass rush isn't dynamic, but Seattle QB Matt Hasselbeck can be injury-prone. When he has time to make decisions, he's an elite QB. The 'Hawks absolutely have to keep him upright.
    4. Create turnovers: The Seahawks have four INTs and three fumble recoveries this year. That's Pete Carroll defense at its finest. The problem? They've thrown five INTs and fumbled twice. They need to win the turnover battle to win on the road. The Rams may have some juice after that win over the Washington Redskins.
    5. Matchup to watch -- Seattle TE John Carlson vs. St. Louis MLB James Laurinaitis: The Rams love to play a lot of zone coverage, which leaves Laurinaitis in the short middle of the field, an area that Carlson loves to roam. Carlson is one of Matt Hasselbeck's favorite targets, especially when he needs the clutch first-down catch.
    6. Spread the wealth, Sam Bradford: Last week, he won his first NFL game. One big reason why? He hit nine different receivers. As he learns to spread it out, CBs won't know where to jump. That's a big advantage for any QB, especially a rookie.
    7. Control the line of scrimmage: The Rams' O-line looked good last week. They opened up a bunch of holes for Steven Jackson and Kenneth Darby, and gave Bradford time. The Seattle D-line is much improved since 2009. The trench battle here will be key.
    8. Take some shots downfield: Seattle is 30th in the NFL at pass defense, allowing seven yards per attempt. The Rams' WRs aren't reminding anyone of Randy Moss, but Bradford has an arm. They'd do well to take a couple of post shots.
    9. Pressure the pocket: Rams' head coach Steve Spagnuolo made a name for himself when he was the defensive coordinator with the New York Giants as a huge blitz guy. Against the INT-prone Hasselbeck, it's probably time that the Rams started to bring a heavy pressure package.
    10. Matchup to watch -- St. Louis OC Jason Brown vs. Seattle DT Colin Cole: This should be an old fashioned, blood-and-guts battle that could be a lot of fun to watch. These guys are both just huge and control space along the line.

    That's right! Josh brown used to stick it to us twice a year.

    I think we just need to contain their special team's and not give up any huge returns and we should win.
