Despite 16-10 Loss to Seahawks, Rams Prove They're True Contenders

10 October, 2017, 00:40 | Author: Greg Wolfe
  • Since 2010 the Seahawks are 8-6 against the Rams

Los Angeles had to settle for a field goal. But that was years ago.

Defensive end Michael Bennett, who pledged to sit during the national anthem for the entirety of the 2017 NFL season to protest social injustices, also joined his teammates in standing on Sunday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

"You can't get the ball every time", Gurley said after the game. Many have speculated that low attendance at National Football League games and slumping ratings could be a direct result the anthem protests. They face the Seahawks, Jaguars, Cardinals, and Giants through the next quarter of the season.

- The snap counts make clear a really big key to this game, that the Seahawks were able to contain the Rams' running game while still being in a nickel or dime defense for all but six plays - Wilhoite was in for just six snaps, the only six on which the Seahawks were in a base defense. Jared Goff did throw two touchdowns, including the go-ahead 52-yard score in the third quarter to Todd Gurley, who totaled 215 yards of offense. "We just weren't finishing drives". On special teams, I'd take Greg Zeurlien and Johnny Hekker over Blair Walsh and Jon Ryan. Russell Wilson has been sacked 10 times and he's avoided a couple dozen more with his quick feet.

Rookie receiver Cooper Kupp had a fantastic game, catching five passes for 60 yards and scoring a touchdown. They are on 3-1 compared to the Seahawks' even 2-2, and if the Rams can claim the win here today they will pull out into a commanding lead over Seattle as the season moves into the long middle stretch.

Seattle will return from the bye week with a game in NY against the Giants on Sunday, Oct. 22 at 1:25 p.m.

The best things the Seahawks have going for them is a weak division, a still-sturdy defense and quarterback Russell Wilson.

The teams traded turnovers early in the second quarter, with the Rams cashing theirs in for a field goal. The Rams settled for a field goal and a 10-0 lead, and they never scored again. That allowed Seattle to use Graham outside more. After taking a handoff and cutting to the right, Austin set up safety Kam Chancellor with a stutter-step and bolted past him for the score. After a long review, the officials ruled since the ball hit the pylon, it was a touchback and Seattle received the ball at their own 20.

But, I don't see it turning around this year like it has in the past.

Asked on Friday about the biggest challenge for first-timers, Carroll said it's figuring out what you believe in as a coach, "because you're going to get challenged so many times and asked so many [times] to come up with so many statements and principles in your approach that you really can't predict. This is the No. 1 offense, and we did a great job". He still talks of his determination and desire to help his team improve and ultimately win.

The Rams have dominated the Seahawks in head-to-head matchups in years past due to their defensive line.

NOTES: The Seahawks signed DE Brandon Jackson from the practice squad and waived LB Justin March-Lillard on Saturday.

With Pro Bowl defensive end Cliff Avril out indefinitely with neck and spine issues and fellow lineman Quinton Jefferson out for at least a month with a broken hand, the Seahawks used defensive end Branden Jackson on 21 snaps Sunday. The Rams had a fifth turnover on a muffed punt fair catch by Tevon Austin.
