The Rams are now 9-6 and have lost two games in a row for the first time this season.
What it means:
The Rams will have to wait to clinch a playoff berth and the Seahawks won the NFC West division title. The Rams will be a wild card team with a win next week, but if there is a three-way tie (according to Fox Sports’ Joe Buck) between the Rams, Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals, the Rams will then be eliminated,
The Seahawks went down the field on the first drive of the third quarter and scored to take a 13-6 lead. Then, Seattle stuffed the Rams at the goal line on four straight runs to keep big late in the third quarter. The Seahawks added an insurance touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Rams’ running back Darrell Henderson was hurt (left ankle) in the third quarter near the goal line, which is not ideal with Cam Akers out with an ankle injury. Malcolm Brown then took over for Henderson. At the end of the third quarter, Rams quarterback Jared Goff hit his throwing thumb on the helmet of a Seattle defender.
Jared Goff appears to have popped his own thumb back into place on the FOX broadcast.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) December 27, 2020
Goff had to pop his thumb back into place. Yeah, ouch.
The Rams host the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday at 1:25 p.m. PT in a game with playoff implications on the line. The Rams beat the Cardinals 38-28 in Arizona three weeks ago.
