The Los Angeles Rams won a great divisional game against the Seattle Seahawks to almost wrap up the NFC West division. Pushing ahead to 9-1, the Rams won 36-31 with timely defense and continued offensive success while the Seahawks dropped to 4-5.
Though the Rams outgained Seattle, Los Angeles didn’t help themselves with over 100 yards of penalties. Let’s revisit the Seahawks I picked and see how they fared in the loss.
QB Russell Wilson
Wilson had a good game against the Rams again. With an efficient game and QBR of 81.8, Wilson finished with 17/26 passing with 176 yards and three touchdowns. Wilson was also deadly on the ground, with nine carries for 92 yards.
WR David Moore
After his coming out, two touchdown performance the last time these teams played, Moore had a pedestrian game with only one catch for 16 yards.
EDGE Frank Clark
Clark made the most of his impact on the stat sheet with a half sack on QB Jared Goff. Clark and the rest of the defense combined for only two sacks and four tackles for loss as the Rams had a pretty good day offensively with Gurley rushing for 120 yards.
RB Mike Davis
With Chris Carson hurting, it was the Penny and Davis show. Davis carried the ball eleven times for 58 yards while also catching four passes for 22 yards and a touchdown. Penny had his “breakout” game with 108 yards rushing and a long rushing TD. The Rams defense will continue to work on limiting running backs going forward (hopefully).
LB Bobby Wagner
Wagner had a very good game in the middle. Leading both teams with 13 total tackles and also a QB hit, Wagner was all over the field trying to prevent the Rams offense. Although the Rams offense still had a good day, Wagner was definitely not at fault.
PFF also has Bobby Wagner as the highest rated inside linebacker this season. Didn't miss a single tackle on Sunday. #Seahawks.— Samuel Gold (@SamuelRGold) November 12, 2018
With a grateful heart, I wanted to take time in today’s piece to thank the Prof (the world’s number one Rams fan) and Skye for allowing me to enjoy the full Rams experience. Skye drove me to the game and is a proud melonhead while the Professor proved to me his fandom is above all else (and I’m really not kidding). Thank you to the TST and Rams community for allowing me to enjoy such a wonderful trip.
