The Los Angeles Rams won in a close battle against the Seattle Seahawks. In what turned out to be a shootout, the Rams won with a gutsy 4th down call on their half of the field. This game propels the Rams to a 5-0 record while the Seahawks drop to 2-3.
These foes will meet again but lets take a look at how the Seahawks players played against the Rams.
QB Russell Wilson
Wilson had his best game of the season against the Rams. With a 88.3 QBR on 13/21 passing, Wilson threw for three touchdowns while spreading the ball to six different receivers. If there’s something positive the Seahawks can take from this loss, it’s that the offense got going.

WR Tyler Lockett
Lockett played well and was the game leader for receiving yards. With three receptions for 98 yards and a touchdown, Lockett again proved to be Wilson’s favorite target, with a team high five targets.

Deep play-action shot. Completely torches the #Rams defense on his post route. Wide open TD. #Seahawks #LARvsSEApic.twitter.com/1lh7Skg7nx
Lockett also contributed in the run game with a six yard rush while showing great explosiveness with a 42 yard kickoff return.
LB Bobby Wagner
Wagner was all over the field with his 8 tackles. Wagner helped to limit Rams RB Todd Gurley to 77 yards rushing. Wagner didn’t have any turnovers but lead the defense in limiting Todd Gurley to a 3.5 rushing average.
CB Shaquill Griffin
Griffin had a decent game for the Seahawks with four total tackles, including a half tackle for loss. With Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp dealing with concussion symptons, the Rams relied a lot on Robert Woods. Griffin had a good first half but things got a bit away as Woods really impressed in the second half.
S Bradley McDougald
McDougald had a very strong game. All over the field, McDougald lead the game with 10 total tackles including a half tackle for loss. Asked to cover the middle of the field while also coming into the box to stop Gurley, McDougald made plays in all three levels of the defense.
