The Seattle Seahawks traveled to St. Louis to take on the Rams on Sunday. It was a tough, physical battle, and 60 minutes wasn’t enough to decide the game.
Unfortunately, the Rams made more plays at the end of regulation and in overtime and stole a win from Seattle. This one stings, because the Seahawks had the lead late in the fourth quarter and couldn’t finished the deal.
Here are five takeaways from this painful loss:
Tyler Lockett is the truth

Rookie Tyler Lockett wasted no time putting the NFL on notice that he will be a force to be reckoned with. Lockett took the first punt of by the Rams and returned it 58 yard touchdown.
Lockett didn’t stop there either. He also got himself involved in the offense. His 4 catches for 34 yards don’t sound like much, but all of them came at critical points for the Seahawks. That’s great production for a rookie in his first game playing in a passing offense that struggled for most of the game.
Lockett needs to see more snaps in the offense going forward.
