The Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams are playing their week 15 matchup Tuesday night due to COVID outbreaks affecting both teams. The Rams were hit first, with more than 30 players on the team ending up on logs after testing positive, while the Seahawks grappling with their own outbreak that began late last week.
At the time of writing, the Rams still have almost double the number of players on the COVID list when compared to the Seahawks. In particular, the Rams got some good news on Tuesday about one of their large EDGE rushers before facing the Hawks’ offensive line and tormenting Russell Wilson.
