Seahawks Beat Rams 16-10, Take First Place

As he acknowledged a few days later, John McVay is actually Sean's grandfather. His 596 total yards from scrimmage are topped only by Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Kareem Hunt.

Reality returned to the Coliseum on Sunday afternoon. We'll have to see how Russell Wilson and the Seahawks' offense performs this Sunday. The Rams defense struggled to contain Dallas but forced two turnovers and stopped a crucial two-point conversion attempt late in the contest. "We've been hoping to get that done". He finished with a mere 43 yards on 14 carries-the biggest Rams run came from wide receiver Tavon Austin out of the backfield for a 27-yard touchdown in the first half. Rick Mirer threw three touchdowns passes for Seattle that day. The second bounced off the hands of diving rookie Cooper Kupp. Goff then threw a deep pass incomplete to Gurley on the far sideline, then just barely missed his connection with Kupp and went to him again on fourth down, but Seattle had it well defended the second time.

If anything, though, that points to progress.

So excuse the Seahawks (2-2) if they don't recognize this revitalized L.A. unit. But we know we're good, too. "This was the No. 1 offense and I think we did a great job".

It's not as though the dam broke on the Rams. With the loss, they now drop to 1-2 on the year during games played at home, and they need to work on that to have things pan out in the long term.

Knowing the red zone offense was an issue, the Rams made a decision to go with a different approach around the goal line: Take the ball out of Todd Gurley's hands.

McVay clearly lost the battle of the minds against Seattle's Pete Carroll, long considered a defensive wizard.

The Rams then marched down the field for a touchdown.

The next time Austin touched the ball, he muffed a punt, which Neiko Thorpe recovered for the Seahawks at the Rams 30-yard line. More than the standings though, it could be a psychological mountain to climb, considering how Seattle has dominated this division since the beginning of the decade. It's a bit baffling.

Another development was that the Seahawks defense is not past tense.

Watch Steve Raible's Scouting Report on Saturday at 7 p.m. for a complete preview of Sunday's game against the Rams. The ball shot forward, tipping the pylon as it went. Unfortunately, the Rams could only muster 10 points, including going 0-for-4 in those trips into the Seattle red zone.

"It was nothing that Todd wasn't doing", McVay said. Even when our back was against the wall early, we still stood up in the red zone. Walsh kicked his third field goal four plays later.

No such luck this time. In last week's win over the Cowboys, Zuerlein was a ideal 7/7 on field goals, while Hekker now ranks 7th in the National Football League with an average of 47.8 yards per punt.

Though Newton is completing a career-high 65.2% of his passes, he has thrown just five touchdowns against five interceptions with a quarterback rating (48.3) that almost mirrors last year's output. Sammy Watkins was invisible.

It was the defense that secured a rare road win against the Rams. Johnson had run from the LA 12 to the Seattle 19, but the Seahawks defense held the Rams to two yards on three downs, making them accept three points instead of six. Kittle had five catches for 73 yards on the drive. "We'll give him all the way to game time, but it's going to be hard for him to make it back this week".
