Los Angeles Rams Can't Get It Done Versus Seattle

Are the Rams the Real Deal? Rampaging Rams set their sights on the playoffs
Elias Hubbard | 10 October, 2017, 00:39

After their disappointing 16-10 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, the Rams now rank 24th in that department with a 47.8 percent touchdown rate. Russell Wilson started the streak off with a 23-yard scramble for the tie-breaking touchdown in the third quarter.

Stat of the Game: San Francisco is 0-5 for the first time since 2010 and are now 7-30 since the beginning of the 2015 season. Limiting explosive plays from Gurley will go a long ways towards a Seahawks win on Sunday. "I think people look forward to writing us off, and I think our demise was greatly overstated". He recovered the first, but Seattle recovered the second to give the visitors an extra possession in L.A. territory.

Similar to that game, it was a defensive battle throughout as neither team could score more than one touchdown in the game. They won their next two games, and the NFL world was sure that they were about to wreck the league.

Instead, quarterback Jared Goff has shed a shaky rookie season and is directing a multi-pronged attack that has collected an NFL-high 142 points.

The Seahawks defense bent - a lot - but didn't break. "Our demise was greatly exaggerated".

Mark Twain could not have said it better. Rams rookie John Johnson intercepted his pass in the second quarter and returned it 69 yards, but Wilson made a possible touchdown-saving tackle.

"We've seen the Rams and they have been explosive on offense and has really controlled the ball", Carroll said. Coming into the game, Sherman had 2 stops total for the season, and Griffin had zero. But Goff, under pressure, missed both throws. For some reason, the Rams went back to Austin in the second quarter, and he fumbled. We had some effect on him. Now they are going to get five and six from coordinator Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme.

Then in two weeks, the Rams will be back in the division with a game at The Coliseum against the Arizona Cardinals.

Still, the Rams had a 10-point lead in the first half and, in spite of all their miscues, were one positive play for victory. Stopping Todd Gurley early will be key- watch for the defensive line and Bobby Wagner to key in on him, and force them to rely on Goff beating the secondary.

Overall it's a tough, but very winnable game. "He's one of the best players in this league, and it's because of that ability to extend plays with his feet, keep his eyes down the field and make some off-schedule throws". Wilson flipped the ball out to Tanner McEvoy, who attempted to hit a streaking J.D. McKissic downfield.

Will the Seahawks pull off a small upset versus the Rams when the NFC West rivals clash at 4:05PM ET on Sunday?

"That was a phenomenal play", Carroll said. Out of nowhere, Russell kicks it into high gear and turns him. "Good, little form tackle, tried to wrap him up and get him down to the ground".

Fantasy fallout: Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls had similar workloads, somewhat of a surprise given how several comments from coach Pete Carroll last week gave the impression that Rawls would be Seattle's primary ball carrier following Chris Carson's season-ending leg/ankle injuries. "I'm never going to make excuses".

That's 11 fewer than he averaged in the first four games. The Rams (3-2) were the shiny new object everyone one was drawn to with a revved-up offense led by Goff and enthusiastic new head coach Sean McVay. But they have yet to learn the ways of navigating the tightrope.
