Pete Carroll’s Seahawks are the best in the NFL at “winning ugly”

Pete Carroll’s Seahawks are the best in the NFL at “winning ugly”

The Seattle Seahawks’ 16-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams marked the second time this season that the Hawks prevailed despite scoring just one touchdown. However difficult the game may have been to watch, it puts Seattle above Los Angeles on the head-to-head tiebreaker for first in the NFC West, and that’s exactly the outcome we were hoping for two weeks ago, even as the Seahawks were sitting at 1-2. Statistically, teams that go an entire game with a maximum of one touchdown have a very low win percentage. In today’s NFL, scoring is at an all-time high and the rules are geared towards...

Russell Wilson got sacked so hard by Robert Quinn it turned into a soft landing

In the second quarter Sunday the Rams outside linebacker had a free shot at the Seahawks quarterback that might have done a lot more damage had Quinn’s weight fallen on Wilson instead of the other way round With the Seattle Seahawks trailing the Los Angeles Rams 10-7 late in the second quarter Sunday, Russell Wilson took a shotgun snap on first and 10 from the Los Angeles 36 yard line hoping to continue a drive that had already advanced 39 yards in less than a minute. With only 34 seconds left before intermission, the Seahawks had a huge opportunity to take the halftime lead in a game...

Winners and losers from Seattle’s dramatic win over the Rams

Winners and losers from Seattle’s dramatic win over the Rams

The Seattle Seahawks will enter their bye week atop the NFC West, having edged out the Los Angeles Rams by a score of 16-10. It’s Seattle’s first road win of the season and indeed their first regular season winning streak since that awesome three-game stretch of victories against the Bills, Patriots, and Eagles in 2016. This is just the second time in the Russell Wilson era that the Seahawks have won a road game against the Rams, and both times the defense made an absolutely heroic last-ditch stand at the goal line to get the W. Here’s a look at the winners and losers following...

Seahawks’ defense dominated Rams, but Russell Wilson saved the game

Seahawks’ defense dominated Rams, but Russell Wilson saved the game

Wilson was under duress all game, but he spun, slithered and scampered away from so many would-be tacklers that Seattle was able to score enough points to win. He infuriated the Rams, invigorated the Seahawks and reminded everyone why he is the ideal quarterback for this team.

Seahawks find themselves in a very good position moving forward

The Seattle Seahawks would not have been entirely screwed if they had lost to the LA Rams on Sunday, but the difference in their position right now by winning compared to losing is still very significant. Instead of being two games back with a loss to LA, they are tied for first with a head-to-head victory. That’s a pretty cushy place to be in already, but let’s look around and see what’s ahead for Seattle because as things stand, there are a number of great reasons to be optimistic about their current position and how things are falling in their favor.

Edit: If the video above does not play, please click “Watch on YouTube” or follow this link. The Seattle Seahawks walked away with a very close victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The Rams were down by six points late and drove all the way down the field to have multiple end zone scoring attempts, but they all fell incomplete. Seattle ended up winning, bringing their record to 3-2 with a share of the division lead and drawing first blood against the only team in the NFC West likely to challenge them this season. However it was much earlier in the game that perhaps the biggest...

3 unheralded moments from Seahawks win over Rams

3 unheralded moments from Seahawks win over Rams

Earl Thomas, Sheldon Richardson, Frank Clark. Three names that contributed the most to a gritty, palpitation-inducing, years-off-the-end-of-your-life victory against the LA Rams on the road. It was their first time beating the Rams on the road since 2013, which was a #good year for the Seattle Seahawks if there ever was one. (There was one. 2013.) While Thomas, Richardson, and Clark will get their deserved props on the highlights shows, across social media, in the newspapers, and throughout the blogosphere, three very under-the-radar things happened Sunday, without any of which a victory...

Cigar Thoughts, Game 5: Seahawks defense castrates NFL’s highest-scoring offense, beat Rams 16-10

The Seattle Seahawks forced five turnovers en route to winning a defensive battle and claiming the top spot in the NFC West. We’re used to Seahawks-Rams games being as awkward and devoid of scoring as a homeschool prom, but this matchup had the potential to be something different altogether. Los Angeles came into this game as the #1 scoring team in the NFL while giving up the 27th most points. Combine that with Seattle’s 36.5-point average over the last two games and the bleary, soulless southern California heat; and the table was set for a whole bunch of points. Ha! Instead, this game...

Seahawks-Rams postgame observations Seattle moves into 1st with win in LA

The Seattle Seahawks went into Los Angeles and defeated the Rams 16-10 to go above .500 for the first time this season. The 3-2 Seahawks are now 2-0 against the NFC West, and drawing first blood against the Rams - likely Seattle’s biggest challenger in the division - could end up being crucial towards the end of the season. Neither side of the ball was perfect for the Seahawks, but both sides delivered massively when they needed to. Most importantly, Seattle is above .500 and atop their division heading into their bye week. Lack of clarity at RB Eddie Lacy was given the first shot at...

Seahawks-Rams final score: Seahawks survive Rams 16-10, take first place in the NFC West

The Seattle Seahawks were down 10-0 early against a Los Angeles Rams team looking to take a two-game lead in the NFC West, but the offense fought back to tie the game at halftime, take the lead in the 3rd quarter, add an insurance field goal in the 4th, and the defense did the rest. Between the defense and special teams, Seattle forced five turnovers, including three in the red zone, and fended off a Jared Goff comeback attempt in the final 1:09. Seattle is now 3-2 and have moved into first place in the NFC West, and have the head-to-head tiebreaker on their rivals. 1st Quarter The Seahawks...

Seahawks-Rams, 1st quarter game thread: Battle for the NFC West begins

The Seattle Seahawks can take over first place in the NFC West with a win. The Los Angeles Rams can build a considerable lead in the division if they win. Jeremy Lane, Cliff Avril, C.J. Prosise, Mark Glowinski, Jordan Roos, Isaiah Battle, and Quinton Jefferson are inactive. The Rams made safety Maurice Alexander a healthy scratch after he had been the starter for all four games so far this season. Rookie John Johnson will be making his first career start. Talk about it.
