The Los Angeles Rams improved to 5-0 on the season with a 33-31 nail-biter against the Seattle Seahawks (2-3) in Week 5. Here are seven stats from Sunday:
- The Rams improved to 5-0 on the season with the win in Seattle on Sunday. The Rams are now 10-1 in games played outside the Coliseum under Sean McVay.
- Dating back to the 2017 season, the Rams have now won five consecutive road games. This stretch marks the sixth time in franchise history that a Rams team has won five straight road contests. The last time it was accomplished was in 2001, when the Rams won all eight of their road games.
- With the Monday night game yet to be played, Todd Gurley leads the NFL in rushing touchdowns through Week 5. He tallied two 2-yard rushing touchdowns and one 5-yard rushing score on Sunday. He has now scored a touchdown in eight consecutive regular season games.
- Robert Woods lead the offense in yardage on Sunday, tallying 92 yards on five receptions and added the longest run of the game (56 yards).
- Yesterday’s contest marked the 100th career start for starting guard Rodger Saffold. Since entering the league, Saffold has played four different positions along the offensive line: 44 starts at left guard, 38 at left tackle, 13 at right guard, and five at right tackle.
- Aaron Donald notched his third sack of the season on Sunday. In doing so, he passed Grant Wistrom (41.5) on the Rams’ all-time sack list (with 42.0).
- Starting linebacker Cory Littleton blocked a Michael Dickson punt on Sunday. It’s his second blocked punt of the season, and the 4th of his career.
Bonus: Despite missing the game-tying extra point - which would’ve made the score 31 all - Cairo Santos made both field goal tries on Sunday, including the game-sealer from 39 yards out with just over six minutes left to play.
