The Rams’ defense took a minute to settle in after coughing up an opening drive field goal to the Seahawks, but they’ve been impressive since and have held the Seahawks scoreless for the remainder of the first half.
The Rams’ offense — and particularly QB Jared Goff — have looked very sharp. Goff is finding WR Robert Woods (5 catches, 62 yards, 1 touchdown) and Tyler Higbee (5 catches, 79 yards) with regularity. The Rams went 72 yards in just under three minutes at the end of the half (Goff to Kupp) to go up 21-3.
More of the same in the second half should lead to a much-needed Rams’ victory.
