Seahawks never establish a rhythm in Los Angeles, lose to the Rams 23-16.
As expected, this Week 10 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams was a close one. In the last three years, outside of 1 game, their games typically always come down to the wire. While this one didn’t necessarily come down to the last drive or last play, it was close throughout.
Although the Los Angeles Rams pretty much held a lead throughout the entirety of the game, the Seahawks had their chances at tying the game, or even, taking the lead. The plays just didn’t come to fruition and a large portion of that was due to another bad game by quarterback Russell Wilson.
But, all the blame can’t be put on Russell Wilson as the Seattle defense couldn’t get a single stop in the first quarter of the game. Regardless, they win as a team and lose as a team. It was another sloppy performance on the road in a crucial divisional game.
Losing this game and the Cardinals winning means there is a new first-place team in the NFC West. The good news is, despite the loss to the Rams and despite falling to a divisional record of 1-2, everything the Seahawks want is still in front of them.
As always, here are five takeaways from the Seattle Seahawks second straight defeat where we hope it doesn’t turn into three straights defeats. (And to be fair, it easily could as the Cardinals are going into week 11 with a lot of momentum.)
