Seahawks OC Shane Waldron set to square off against Rams Week 5

By Liz Mathews

Seahawks offensive coordinator Shane Waldron will face his former team Thursday night when Seattle hosts the Los Angeles Rams in a divisional-round, prime-time standoff.

After spending four years with the Rams organization, this first game has special meaning, of course, but Waldron has no intention of letting it become a distraction.

“There’s a lot of, to state the obvious, great relationships I have with people out in L.A., but as far as the game goes, I think there’s two separate worlds I’m living in right now,” Waldron told reporters on Tuesday. “It’s a football week for me. I’m excited to be in a Thursday night game, a Thursday night setting, divisional game. Just like last week, it was an important game.

“No difference this week as we approach this one coming up quick.”

Both teams are coming off a short week for the contest in Seattle and Waldron clearly has his work cut out for him.

Kickoff is set for 5:20 p.m. PT at Lumen Field.
