Seahawks Beat Rams 16-10, Take First Place

Jared Goff

The Seattle Seahawks tried to get cute against the Los Angeles Rams, and it didn't go so well. The Cardinals had an wonderful season in 2015, but that didn't stop the Seahawks from making the playoffs as a Wild Card team and winning their first playoff game on the road.

Many saw this game as the changing of the guard in the division.

This year, the Los Angeles Rams look like a potential playoff team.

- PFF also gave some blame for the running game troubles to Rawls and Lacy, writing: "Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls combined to average 1.47 yards after contact, a far cry from the 2.61 yards after contact Chris Carson averaged for the first four weeks of the season". If you're looking for an Arizona bright spot, that might be it - and it's not that bright.

Overall it's a tough, but very winnable game. Richardson recovered the ball at the Rams 40-yard line and returned it 20 yards.

After the game, defensive end Frank Clark said the decision was made to honor those killed in the massacre in Las Vegas last week. "If I make plays, then I get the ball". Kickoff for the contest begins at 1:05 p.m. PT in Los Angeles. For long stretches of Sunday's game, the Rams wouldn't (or couldn't) get the ball to running back Todd Gurley, who totaled 215 yards from scrimmage last week against Dallas.

That would be it for and Rams' action on the scoreboard.

Austin's touchdown came 10 plays after Cody Davis intercepted a pass by Seattle receiver Tanner McEvoy at the Rams 36-yard line.

The Rams did have chances in the final moments.


The Seahawks still needed a drop by rookie receiver Cooper Kupp in the end zone on the Rams' last possession to preserve their tenuous six-point lead. What countered that part of the game was the turnover scenario, in which the Rams gave up the ball five times and the Seahawks only turned it over twice. The two might not be locked against one another for all of Sunday night's tilt, but the matchup would be a revealing indication of Watson's aggressiveness and risk tolerance.

Like the Los Angeles Chargers, the Rams haven't done great at home this season. Now, Los Angeles leads the NFC West through the quarter-pole of the NFL season, and leads the league in scoring offense with 35.5 points per game. Wilson didn't have big numbers, but the quarterback put on a performance of vintage resourcefulness, repeatedly wriggling away from the Rams' pursuing defense to make plays.

What's Next: The Rams travel across the country to face the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, while the Seahawks will enjoy their bye week. The Panthers scored 24 straight after trailing 10-3 early in the second quarter.

San Francisco would answer.

Wilson completed nine of 11 passes for 61 yards on the touchdown drive. Gurley had 14 carries for 43 yards and only two catches for seven yards.

Just not on Sunday, and maybe never if the Rams turn the ball over five times. With that in mind, this is the first road game for the Cougs, and they're coming off an emotional game, one of the biggest victories in school history. "McVay was a high-ranking executive in the 49ers" front office, considered an unsung hero in constructing the teams that won three Super Bowls under Bill Walsh and two more under George Seifert.

"They've done a great job when they've been in there and both of them have had to play a substantial amount", Sherman said on Wednesday. The defense was on the field majority of the game but made it hard for the Rams to get anything going. The play was originally ruled a touchdown, but then reversed upon video review and was ruled a touchback.

"We all played so well on defense", Earl Thomas said.
