WHAT'S GONE RIGHT?

In this Week's edition of ESPN's NFL Power Rankings, NFL Nation reporters took a look at what's gone right and what's gone wrong, reflecting on preseason power rankings.

Here's is Lindsey Thiry's take on the Rams:

The Rams were expected to have a big season after they added three All-Pros in Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters and Ndamukong Suh on defense, and the offense added speedy receiver Brandin Cooks. At 8-1, it's safe to say the Rams have exceeded expectations, especially on offense. Todd Gurley II is making a strong case for MVP, as he leads the league in rushing yards and touchdowns, and the addition of Cooks has provided a consistent deep-ball threat for Jared Goff.

GOFF'S DAY IN NEW ORLEANS

Quarterback Jared Goff's play was a bright spot in the Rams' Week 9's loss to the Saints. Pro Football Focus tweeted out just how good Goff was against Brees on Sunday's marquee game.

Goff has now completed 70 percent of passes in six games this season. Sunday's 391 yards through the air was Goff's second-highest total of the season behind Week 4's 465-yard performance against the Vikings.

WEEK 10 EARLY ODDS

The Rams are yet to lose back-to-back games under head coach Sean McVay and are expected to continue that trend this weekend against the Seahawks. The Rams are currently 9.5-point favorites over quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seahawks — which is is the largest spread Seattle has faced with Wilson.

Here's what CBSsports.com's John Breech had to say about Sunday's matchup:

This game will mark the largest point spread that the Seahawks have ever faced in Russell Wilson's career. Since his rookie year in 2012, the Seahawks have been an underdog of 7.5 points a total of three times and they've covered in all three games (1-2 straight-up). One of those games came earlier this year when the Seahawks covered as a 7.5-point underdog in a 33-31 home loss to the Rams. The 7.5-point spread is the largest number Wilson has ever faced. Although the Rams have been nearly unbeatable this season, they're just 4-5 ATS. However, they are 2-0 ATS under Sean McVay when favored by nine or more points.
