Rams vs. Seahawks: The Quick Five

New, comments

It took four weeks, but the Rams finally won another game.

Scott Kane-USA TODAY Sports

The stage was set for another collapse, but the Rams pulled through with some...serious...luck. It's somewhat of a bittersweet victory, as the Rams could easily have been sitting at an incredible 5-1 record if they would have figured out their 60 minute formula a month ago.

But with over half a season to go, it's good to know the monkey is hopefully of the team's back.

red down

Alec Ogletree, OLB

Ogletree struggled to contain Russell Wilson, letting him run all over the place on the way to a record setting game. He was brought in as the rangy, sideline-to-sideline linebacker, but hasn't been performing at a high level. That Wilson touchdown run? You don't bite on the option when your only job is to contain the QB.

Green Up

Austin Davis, QB

Take notes, folks. This is exactly where you want Austin Davis to be. When he's tasked with carrying the team, mistakes are easily amplified. Leaning on the running game worked well for the Rams. Those two shovel passes? Loved it. Davis brings something to the offense that fans haven't seen in years; you can't help but root for him.

Green Up

Aaron Donald, DT

Aaron Donald made the Seahawks interior line his bitch. That's about the only way I can describe how Donald played against the Seahawks. That's exactly the performance the Rams drafted him for, and it showed.

red down

Tre Mason, RB

It's easy to look at Mason's stat line and think I'm crazy. Maybe I am - but the zebras gave Mason a get of jail free card with his fumble that was 'recovered' by Cory Harkey. Other then that, Mason played well, and he'd get an up arrow if it wasn't for that potential disaster.

Green Up

Johnny Hekker, P

Let me start off by commending John Fassel on a stellar game plan. That fake punt return? Amazing. But the game probably ends in a loss if Johnny Hekker doesn't convert the fourth down punt fake. It takes serious cojones to run a play like that - but give credit where it is due. Well done.
