*Seattle, off of an impressive road victory against the Lions return home to take on the red-hot Los Angeles Chargers coming off their bye.  Los Angeles was a PICK’em on the look ahead line for NFL Week 9, and it’s sat at or around that number to open this week, as well.

*In a crucial NFC matchup, the Rams go on the road to visit New Orleans.  Both have a shot at home-field throughout the conference, and this game will play a role in who holds the advantage.  The Rams were -1 on the look ahead lines, and that’s exactly where we sit right now.
