A path seems to be carving out nicely for the Rams, who have to win at least three, probably four, of their last seven games to win the NFC West (not easy, given that they have the NFL's second-hardest remaining schedule). The Rams already held a one-game lead over the Seahawks, and now Seattle will be without both SS Kam Chancellor and CB Richard Sherman the rest of this year. The Rams, NFL leaders in point differential, remain completely healthy. It's as important as anything.

The Seahawks list left tackle Duane Brown (ankle) and defensive tackle Jarran Reed (hamstring) as questionable for Monday night's game vs. Atlanta. As expected, strong safety Kam Chancellor (neck) has been ruled out. Also out are linebacker Michael Wilhoite (calf) and left guard Luke Joeckel (knee).

After discussions among the coaching staff the Broncos have decided to make Paxton Lynch the No. 2 quarterback for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. It means Brock Osweiler will start as scheduled and Trevor Siemian will have gone from starter to a gameday inactive in three weeks. It will be first time Lynch, who suffered a right shoulder injury in the preseason, has been in uniform for a game this season. Coach Vance Joseph said Friday the determining factor for Lynch to be in uniform would be Lynch's performance in practice this past week when he had worked as the No. 2.

Don't expect the NFL to hand down any immediate discipline after referee Ron Torbert's crew failed to enforce the "Holy Roller" rule Thursday night at Heinz Field. The league sometimes issues discipline in cases of mis-application of rules. But when asked about that possibility, an NFL spokesman said: "Like players and coaches, officials are evaluated on every play of every game, and held accountable. NFL Senior Vice President of Officiating Alberto Riveron and his staff undertake a detailed video review of every game each week, analyzing the performance of every official, both for the calls that are made and those that are not. That review results in a grade of the official which plays a major role in determining how to help the officials improve their performance as well as decide which officials will officiate in the playoffs. This is the process that will be followed in this situation."

The Broncos signed tight end Austin Traylor from their practice squad on Saturday and waived tight end A.J. Derby injured (shoulder). Derby, who was acquired in a trade with the New England Patriots last season, had not practiced this week. The Broncos had surrendered a fifth-round pick for Derby a little over a year ago. Derby was tied for the team lead in touchdown catches with two. Tight end Jeff Heuerman (knee) also did not practice this week.

Since 2014, Kam Chancellor has missed nine games due to injury and two more while he was holding out. The Seahawks are 6-4-1 in those games, allowing an average of just over 20 points. So they've played -- and have won some games -- without him. But since 2011, they've never been without any more than one of Chancellor, Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas at the same time. "We haven't been in this territory before," defensive coordinator Kris Richard said yesterday about possibly being without Chancellor in addition to Sherman, who's out for the season.

Ravens have activated RB Danny Woodhead. All signs have been pointing to his return this week. PPR leagues rejoice.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert recently had a procedure done to remove a cyst on his knee, a source told ESPN's Dan Graziano. Eifert is already out for the year after having back surgery. He is in the final year of his rookie contract and could be headed for unrestricted free agency after the season.
