What we learned from Seahawks victory over the Rams | NFL Network

The wild, wild NFC West played host to a shootout in Seattle on Thursday night. In a back-and-forth battle, the Seattle Seahawks (4-1) laughed last as Greg Zuerlein’s 44-yard game-winning field-goal attempt went wide right and the Los Angeles Rams (3-2) fell, 30-29, to kick off Week 5. Here’s what we learned.

Greg Zuerlein has been under more pressure before, nailing a 57-yard field goal in overtime to win the NFC Championship. He’d made three other field-goal attempts earlier Thursday night, including a 47-yarder. So, when Greg “The Leg” lined up a 44-yard attempt with the game on the line in Seattle, it seemed destined for the L.A. Rams to sneak out with the win.

If this is Jared Goff now, the Seattle Seahawks may need to focus all of their attention on the San Francisco 49ers. And while we can place a lot of attention on Greg Zuerlein missing a 44-yard field goal to help Seattle move to 4-1, a game ahead of the now 3-2 LA Rams, I’m sure Sean McVay and Goff will be focusing on scoring 29 points and missing early game opportunities to put the Seahawks away early.

While the Los Angeles Rams are 3-1, they have not played as well as they could be and we all should know what the problem truly is.
