On the first play of a first-quarter drive, Russell Wilson threw a horizontal pass to wide receiver Tanner McEvoy who then launched a deep, cross-field pass to J.D. McKissic, which was intercepted.
"It reminded me of that Cal game", Carroll said. They're also just 3-12-1 against the spread in their last 16 games overall. "I'm really excited for him". We'll continue to work on that.
A former standout at Boston College, Johnson said he had "no idea", in advance, that he would be displacing Alexander, but the Rams had showed increased confidence in Johnson after he overcame an injury that sidelined him for the early part of training camp.

When Carroll was at the University of Southern California, he won with regularity in Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Yes, Seattle lucked out on the second-to-last play of the game. Goff said Watkins was a "little bit confused" on the play and that they talked about what happened on the play.
