Game recap: Seahawks 16, Rams 10

It was by far Seattle's best effort as it finally established a running game to complement Russell Wilson's pinpoint passing.

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.

In the second half of last week's 46-18 win over the Indianapolis Colts, the Seahawks turned in a complete performance on offense, defense, and special teams to outscore the Colts 36-3.

"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.

Rawls was averaging 5.6 yards per carry and had 870 yards when injuries first started derailing his burgeoning career. Only four games in, Gurley has seven total touchdowns this season, more than he had all of a year ago. The defense is spending the majority of the game on the field, which is causing defenders to tire late in games.

Run with Gurley: The Seahawks think linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright make their uniquely equipped to slow down the NFL's second-leading rusher and Rams' receiving leader. Reliant on a dominant defense in years past, through four games this season it is the Rams' upstart offense that has been turning heads around the NFL. Although Seattle has struggled at times during this season, they seem to be struggling more than usual.

Things were close, however, and the Buccaneers were pushing in the fourth, but ultimately came up short to ensure the Patriots would claim a confidence boosting road win and move to 3-2. That came after the Seahawks had recovered a fumbled punt by the Rams' Tavon Austin.

Seattle will return from the bye week with a game in NY against the Giants on Sunday, Oct. 22 at 1:25 p.m.

Todd Gurley has looked like the running back that we saw as a rookie.

Earlier this week on NFL Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots won a tight game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get themselves back to a winning record. I stay in my place and that's a players place, and whenever I touch the field, when No. 34 is out there, I'm out there. We got into the red zone and didn't do a good job.

When Carroll was at the University of Southern California, he won with regularity in Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Earl Thomas forced a fumble and picked off an errant Jared Goff pass. Last week against Dallas, Watkins had only one catch for 17 yards.

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.

One of the more weird statistics from the Week 5 game is the fact that the Los Angeles Rams had over 130 more yards of total offense.
