OK. It might be premature for such a bold proclamation.
The Seahawks are now one game behind the Rams for first place in the NFC West.
Both teams want this game pretty bad, but the Seahawks need it. Take the 2 1/2 points that Seattle is getting. These are some of the best defenses in the league and will really test this young defense. Goff, who completed 54.6 percent of his passes and managed five TDs and seven interceptions in seven games under Jeff Fisher last season, is completing 66.7 percent of his passes with seven TDs and one pick for McVay. The defense got into the act when Bobby Wagner ran a fumble 21 yards back for a score, before Wilson closed out the onslaught with a 27-yard pass to McKissic.
The Seattle Seahawks have struggled against the Los Angeles Rams in recent seasons, but those struggles seem to intensify when they play the Rams on the road.
But in a game in which its defense played stellar, the offense at least made the one big drive it needed, a 75-yard touchdown march late in the first half when the Rams were threatening to take control.
A loss to the Los Angeles Rams does not make winning the NFC West an impossible proposition for the Seattle Seahawks.
Prior to Sunday, the last time the Seahawks won in this venue was when they beat the Los Angeles Raiders on September 11, 1994, back when they were both AFC West teams.
Todd Gurley rumbled to the end zone for what the referees initially ruled a touchdown run, but after a lengthy review it was determined Thomas has knocked the ball out, and it went into and out of the end zone to give the Seahawks a touchback with 9:20 left in the first quarter.
So while it's early, this certainly looks like the game that will decide the direction of the entire division. The Seahawks defense has had early season issues containing running backs like Carlos Hyde and DeMarco Murray. "I was thinking about it". The Rams have not lost in three tries against the Seahawks at the Coliseum: in 1976, "79 and a year ago. You see why Seattle has been so good for so long defensively". First and foremost, they have the No. 1 scoring offense in the league. He's carried the ball five times for all of 4 yards in the two games he was active and then was unexpectedly scratched last week.
And now, he's back in a prominent role with perhaps a chance to claim his place again as Seattle's primary ball carrier.
The Rams win if ... Watkins was the target of four of Jared Goff's passes. Seriously, it might be that simple.
The Seahawks defensive line, who sat against the Colts, all stood with interlocked arms on Sunday.
