Covid is raging through the NFL once again. And it has had a massive impact on one Week 15 matchup in particular.

The Los Angeles Rams placed 26 players on the Covid list last week. A number of those names were impact players, including Von Miller, Odell Beckham Jr, Jalen Ramsey and Darrell Henderson Jr. Due to the breakout, the NFL was forced to move the game from Sunday to Tuesday.

On Sunday however, the Seahawks placed six players on the Covid list. Now they could enter Tuesday shorthanded as well.

The NFL has amended it’s guidelines to allow fully vaccinated players to return faster. But whether any other players will be activated for Tuesday’s game at 7:00 pm EST from SoFi Stadium is another question.

Things were quickly shifting in favor of the Seahawks before the plug was pulled and the game rescheduled last week. With the Rams getting healthier, LA has remained home favorites.

Both teams have covered and won their last two games. LA had failed to cover in five-straight before that, while Seattle was 0-3 ATS. NFL Public Money is heavily backing the Rams and the over. LA is such

While it was mostly bad news last week, the Rams got good news over the weekend. Some key players will be back in the lineup for Tuesday’s contest.

Rams (and Jalen Ramsey) got the news around the third quarter of tonight’s Pats-Colts game. He has tested negative and is good to go for Tuesday’s game Vs Seattle. @NFLonFOX

Odell Beckham Jr and Darrell Henderson Jr were among six players activated on Saturday. On Sunday, Jalen Ramsey seemed to indicate he’d gotten the all clear. That was confirmed as well.

Provided any of the above players are vaccinated, then they just need to provide two negative tests within 24 hours. Then they can be activated for Tuesday’s game.

As it stands, postponing the game allowed for the Rams to get healthier while the Seahawks get sicker. That’s…not ideal.

The names on the above list don’t even take into account the injury report. That has been delayed too. Brian Allen, Aaron Donald and Greg Gaines were all full participants for the Rams on Saturday. That means good news for Tuesday.

OL Brandon Shell opened the week with a DNP before landing on the Covid list. DT Bryan Mone only got in one practice before being listed as DNP the rest of the way.

Seahawks vs Rams Head-to-Head

These two met back in Week 5 when the Rams won 26-17. There’s a caveat to that result however, as that was the game Russell Wilson broke his finger.

While the Seahawks QB is back, he hasn’t really looked like himself. He struggled in his first three games back, then turned in a mostly clean performance in a win over the 49ers.

Cardinals collapse against the Lions. If Rams win over Seahawks on Tuesday, they’ll be tied for first in the NFC West.

His completion percentage dipped back to 60% against the Texans, though he did toss two TDs for the third-straight game.

This list doesn’t include the playoffs last year when LA walked out of Seattle with a 30-20 win.

LA has won three-straight home games against Seattle, dating back to 2018. Since that 30-29 Seahawks win on a Thursday night in 2018, the under has hit four times in a row. But more than that, none of the games have gone over 43.

With a number of defensive players potentially MIA for this one, it could mean for a big day offensively.

Seahawks vs Rams Prediction

Despite a healthy lead in Covid-related absences, the Rams are still heavy favorites heading into Tuesday. But Covid has really hit their depth along both the offensive and defensive line, as well as their defensive backs and linebackers.

So while a Rams’ win still makes sense after getting back Ramsey, Beckham Jr and Henderson, it could still be a bit of a scramble defensively.

Matthew Stafford and the offense should be fine. Ramsey will go to work on DK Metcalf, but it’s how Russell Wilson attacks the rest of the defense that will be interesting. Even if their running backs were healthy, Seattle would be throwing a lot anyways. The streak of unders between these two stops Tuesday.

The Pick: Over 46.5 (-105); 1 unit
