The Rams officially have the NFC West in a stranglehold

The Los Angeles Rams bounced back after their first loss of the season with a tough divisional win against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Rams are now 9-1 on the season with the second place Seahawks dropping to 4-5. This widens the gap for the divisional race which was near impossible for the Seahawks to rebound from anyways.

The Rams’ defense started out weak again allowing two touchdowns in their first two drives, though they eventually settled in and played relatively solid the remainder of the game. The issue wasn’t necessarily bad play either, it was stupid penalties that continued to extend drives for the Seahawks and keep them in the game.

The offense had no hiccups as per usual. Everything worked in unison though the redzone play calling on one drive could have been much improved.

DT Aaron Donald is now up to a career high 12.5 sacks on the season. RB Todd Gurley is a mere handful of yards away from breaking 1,000 rushing yards on the season. Also, WR Cooper Kupp went down with a non-contact left knee injury and was doubtful to return (helped off the field by the training staff). It didn’t look good, but lets hope for the best.
