The Los Angeles Rams have an elite defense and the right running back. That much is clear as they lead the Seattle Seahawks 20-10 at halftime of their Saturday wild card contest. Rams cornerback Darious Williams gave LA a 13-3 lead on a pick-six — his third interception of Russell Wilson this season — and then Cam Akers scored with 1:57 remaining in the half.
Akers had a 44-yard reception on the drive and has 15 carries for 77 yards.
The Rams started John Wolford at quarterback and kept Jared Goff active as his emergency backup. The emergency happened early in the game when Wolford suffered a neck injury on a hit from safety Jamal Adams and Goff was back under center. Sean McVay opted to not have Blake Bortles active as a third option, leaving Johnny Hekker as the new emergency quarterback.
Goff is 4-of-8 for 98 yards, including his 44-yard pass to Akers and a 44-yarder on an impressive save by Cooper Kupp.
