NFL Thursday Night Football Schedule 2019: Where to Watch Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks, TV Channel, Live Stream, Odds

An all-NFC West rivalry kicks off Week 5 of the NFL season when the Seattle Seahawks host the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football.

Both teams sit at 3-1 but arrive into Week 5 in contrasting moods.

Jared Goff set career highs in attempts, completions and passing yards last week, with 68, 45 and 517 respectively, as the Rams put up 40 points against Tampa Bay.

Goff's effort, however, was ultimately futile as Los Angeles allowed 55 points, more than they had in the first three games combined.

The Rams quarterback also threw three interceptions for only the second time in his career and admitted the defending NFC champions had to improve.

"They [Tampa Bay] did a great job applying that pressure and keeping it on all day," he was quoted as saying by The Associated Press. "It's frustrating. It's something we need to get fixed quickly."

Goff is 9-0 in his past starts against NFC West teams, but that record will be sorely tested against the Seahawks.

Seattle improved to 3-1 after winning 27-10 in Arizona against the Cardinals, with its defense conceding its fewest point tally for the season thus far.

Russell Wilson completed 78.6 percent of his passes, finishing with 240 yards and one touchdown. Wilson leads the NFC quarterbacks so far this season with a 118.7 rating and relishes playing against the Rams.

The 30-year-old has thrown for at least three touchdowns in his last two games against the NFC champions, finishing both with a rating higher than 120.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Seahawks will again be looking for a major effort from Jadeveon Clowney. The first overall pick of the 2014 draft had a 27-yard defensive touchdown in the win over the Cardinals.

The defensive end arrived in Seattle just before the beginning of the season and looks to have improved an already outstanding defensive unit.

Clowney, however, insisted there was plenty of room for improvement.

"We're still trying to learn, getting better," he was quoted as saying by ESPN.

"That's the name of the game—not peaking right now. It's improving each and every week. I'm feeling better and getting better. Other guys say they're feeling better. We're coming together as a unit."

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Thursday.
