SEATTLE (AP) — The last time the Los Angeles Rams visited Seattle, they were announcing themselves as the new powerhouse in the NFC West by handing the Seahawks a drubbing unlike any they had experienced in Pete Carroll's tenure. As much as the Seahawks would like to forget that day last December, a 42-7 loss to a division rival lingers. Less than a year later, the Rams make their annual trip to Seattle on Sunday looking to take control of the division just five weeks into the season.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks' situation at free safety is clear now.

His first test as a starter is a big one with the Seahawks facing the undefeated LA Rams on Sunday.
