Rams vs Seahawks: Why Fans Should Avoid Atrocious Monday Night Game

Ryan Phillips@@RumorsandRantsContributor IIIDecember 12, 2011

It's Week 14 and the best the NFL can give us on Monday Night Football is the 2-10 St. Louis Rams against the 5-7 Seattle Seahawks. Really? I mean, this game didn't even look good during the preseason before the Seahawks fell flat and the Rams suffered through an injury-plagued season from franchise quarterback Sam Bradford.

So tonight the football-watching public gets this clunker of a game between two teams that are nowhere near playoff contention. 

How bad is it? Well St. Louis is averaging an NFL-worst 11.7 points per game, while the Seahawks are scoring just 18.0. Should be a real barn-burner in Seattle tonight.

These are just two very bad bad football teams. The Rams currently rank 30th in the NFL in total offense (284.0 yards per game), while the Seahawks rank 27th (298.5 yards per game). 

The Seahawks have managed to be decent defensively, as they rank 14th, allowing just 339.7 yards per game. But the Rams have been terrible, ranking 25th in the league, surrendering 366.2 yards per game. 

Frankly, this will just be brutal to watch.

If you want to see how Sam Bradford handles himself against an average defense while battling an ankle injury or you're interested in the development of Tarvaris Jackson and Golden Tate's budding relationship, then this will be the game for you.

If not, rent a movie, watch some cheesy Christmas specials on television, or read a book. This game will be one of the worst of the season and you'll be better off forgetting it's even on television.
