The Rams' potential game-winning touchdown went off Cooper Kupp's hands

The Rams are 3-1 on the season with their biggest victory coming over the Dallas Cowboys. None of them connected, though the second one - to rookie Cooper Kupp out of Eastern Washington - was tantalizingly close.

"I thought we made him ... scatter the ball around a little bit in the second half", Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.

The Seahawks did prevail, albeit barely. "Our demise was greatly overstated".

Austin's touchdown came 10 plays after Cody Davis intercepted a pass by Seattle receiver Tanner McEvoy at the Rams 36-yard line. That said, it seems to only happen in a weak NFC West that can't get anything done offensively and it happened again in Week 5 for the Seahawks when Blair Walsh went 3-for-3 on the day to help give the team the win.

What's Next: The Rams travel across the country to face the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, while the Seahawks will enjoy their bye week. This is one reason when Seattle blows a team out they look so magnificent. The Seahawks have the potential to win the Super Bowl this year, which has been the case during every year of the Russell Wilson era. Russell Wilson completed 21 of 26 passes for 295 yards and two touchdowns against two interceptions, and ran for 38 yards and a touchdown in four carries.

There wasn't much room for them to run because the Rams' defensive line often was breaking into the backfield.

After he played two consecutive games without a turnover, Goff's decision-making proved costly.

"I'll get it right and I will take them to the house", Johnson said. "They were fantastically composed and poised". You could see some throws were getting away. You're constantly reminded to never bet with your heart, and bet with your head, but whoever said that doesn't know me very well. "I just know the ball was not on target". "We've been hoping to get that done". the top scoring team in the league at 35.5 points per game. The Rams have scored 35 or more points in three of their four games this season.

The Rams (3-1) have found their offense under new coach Sean McVay.

Thomas made enormous plays early and late.

Wilson also made a play he'd rather have not been forced into. Expected to be sunny and get up to 79 degrees in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for kickoff against the Rams, for the NFC West lead. It will be up to the rest of the defensive line, guys like Sheldon Richardson and Michael Bennett, to elevate their level of play to compensate for the loss of Avril.

Frank Clark is a beast, young reader. Their offense has looked extremely strong, and probably stronger than any other team so far this season. Last Sunday Zuerlein was a ideal 7-for-7 on field goals and scored 23 of the Rams' 35 points all on his own. "When the Seahawks rushed 4 players or less, they held Goff to a mere 40.8 passer rating". And though the group ranks fourth against the pass, it likely won't be able to take Goff for granted as in past matchups by loading up the box.

"It would have been an incredible catch if he'd come up with it", Goff said. It would have been a lot more if not for his ability to scramble out of trouble. While it wasn't the easiest catch to make, it was certainly one Kupp should've had and will leave a sour taste in the Rams' mouths.

Carroll reached for the proverbial thesaurus in describing the low-scoring affair. That play resulted in a fumble into the pylon, resulting in a change of possession with the ball going back to Seattle. "It was a really exciting, tough, hard-nosed, hard-fought, well-deserved win".

The defense that has been so dominant over the last half decade has yet to show up this season, even though, arguably, this is the most talent the Seahawks have had on the roster since 2014. "They did, and we make no excuses".
