It should have been the Arizona Cardinals.
Instead, the NFC West faces off in a Wild Card Weekend matchup that will likely be one of the more defensive contest.
Here is everything you need to know about the afternoon game.
Who: Los Angeles Rams (10-6) at Seattle Seahawks (12-4)
Where: Lumen Field, Seattle, Washington
When: January 9, 2021 – 2:40 p.m. Arizona Time
TV: Fox (Local Channel 10) – Joe Buck (Play-by-Play) Troy Aikman (Color Analyst) Kirstina Pink and Erin Andrews (sideline reporters)
Odds: Seahawks -3
Will it be Cardinals slayer John Wolford or will Jared Goff have enough in the tank to go?
The Seahawks offense hasn’t looked the same of late, but their defense has been stifling since week 10, allowing only 16 points per game.
The Rams defense meanwhile is the best scoring defense in the NFL.
It’ll be another NFC West fight, who are you taking?
