Ahead of the season, there were many questions about whether veteran Geno Smith could adequately replace Russell Wilson. No longer. In an offense designed by former Rams assistant Shane Waldron, Smith has completed 73% of his passes, 19 for touchdowns, with five interceptions.
DK Metcalf has 59 best receptions, four for touchdowns, and Tyler Lockett has 57 catches, six for touchdowns. Receiver Marquise Goodwin and tight ends Noah Fant and Will Dissly are also a threat. Rookie running back Kenneth Walker has rushed for 613 yards and nine touchdowns.
For the first time in nine seasons, Rams defenseman Aaron Donald will not play because of an injury. Donald suffered a sprained ankle against the Chiefs. Greg Gaines, Marquise Copeland, Jonah Williams and Bobby Brown will try to fill the gap.
Linebacker Bobby Wagner played 10 seasons for the Seahawks before being released in March. Wagner has a team-best of 90 tackles and three sacks.
Inside linebacker Ernest Jones is a question and outside linebacker Terrell Lewis is out with a back problem. Cornerback Troy Hill is doubtful with a groin injury, so rookies Derion Kendrick and Cobie Durant could have extended chances.
