The Rams were left with a sour taste in their mouths last week when they were crushed by the Seahawks on the road, 20-9. It dropped their record to 9-6 and put them in danger of missing the playoffs.
But by beating the Cardinals on Sunday, the Rams set up a third meeting with the Seahawks – their second in a three-week span. As the No. 6 seed, the Rams will visit the Seahawks on Wild Card Weekend to open the playoffs, squaring off on Saturday afternoon.
They split the season series 1-1, and Aaron Donald is excited to face the Rams’ division rival for a third time next weekend in a win-or-go-home rubber match.
After L.A.’s win over Arizona, Donald said facing the Seahawks is “exactly what we wanted.”
Donald has always played well against the Seahawks, so it’s no surprise that he wants another shot at them. Seattle clinched the NFC West by beating the Rams last weekend, but L.A. will try to avenge that loss by eliminating its rival from the postseason with a win.
Kickoff is set for 4:40 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon on FOX.
