Tonight’s “Sunday Night Football” game is massive when it comes to the NFL playoff picture. In a game scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC, the 7-5 Rams will host the 10-2 Seahawks in Los Angeles, and the winner will give itself significant help in its effort to either make or reach a top seed in the NFC postseason.
Seattle’s win last week made it the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoff picture entering Week 14, with its win over No. 5-seeded San Francisco giving it the tiebreaker. Also a winner last week, Los Angeles is just a game behind Minnesota for the sixth and final wild-card spot in the NFC.

In both our Week 14 NFL picks against the spread and straight-up predictions, Sporting News is projecting a Rams upset victory over the Seahawks. Below are the explanations.
Pick against the spread: The Rams got well with their fine all-around offensive performance against the Cardinals. Jared Goff should carry that confidence back home, where he usually plays his best. The Seahawks are coming off a short week and typically have not done as well in Los Angeles in this rivalry during the Sean McVay era. This will become another classic game between division rivals in prime time, with Goff setting up Greg Zuerlein for the game-winning field goal that comes to fruition this time. Pick: Rams win 30-27.
Straight-up prediction: If the rematch is anything like the first Seahawks-Rams game this season, NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” viewers are in for a treat. Thanks to its get-will game in Arizona, Los Angeles is back on track just in time for a showdown that could determine whether it reaches the playoffs. For many reasons, namely Russell Wilson and a superior overall running game, Seattle should win. But that would make a division game in the NFL unpredictably predictable. Pick: Rams 30, Seahawks 24.
