LA Rams Look to Prove They're No Fluke against Seattle

Aaron Donald is one of the best defensive players in the National Football League, and has the potential to dominate the atrocious Seahawks offensive line.

Other than the second half a week ago against the overmatched Indianapolis Colts, the Hawks haven't been dominating this season.

Seattle are the heavy favorites to win the division this year but some early slip-ups have given Los Angeles a real fighting chance. The veteran safety stripped Gurley at the pylon to kill the Rams' opening drive, and he intercepted Jared Goff's fluttering pass at midfield with 6:02 to play.

Similar to that game, it was a defensive battle throughout as neither team could score more than one touchdown in the game. "It was just more of a matter of some of the decisions that we made, and I made as the play-caller".

The Rams have been Seattle's nemesis for years.

And it was another lucky bounce with less than 3 minutes left. With 12 seconds remaining, a previously-struggling Jared Goff delivered a flawless seed down the seam after Kupp put Justin Coleman on skates, but the rookie couldn't haul in the pass. Richardson, a defensive tackle who was a multisport star in high school in St. Louis, made an exquisitely athletic play, diving and securing the ball with soft hands for the interception.

Blair Walsh converted three field goals, and Russell Wilson threw a touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham for the Seahawks only score. It was his first miss of the season, his first in 20 attempts and kept the game tied at 10. The Seahawks lost 9-3 previous year in a Week 2 game whose only redeeming aspect was that Russell Wilson proved definitively that he is better playing on one leg than Charlie Whitehurst was while playing on two.

Myles Garrett easy choice for Browns player of game vs. Jets
If you would have told most people that the Jets could possibly be over.500 after Week 5, they would have called you insane . The Jets , improbably, sit atop the AFC East after a 17-14 win over the Browns on Sunday. "We'll discuss it", Bowles said.

Sammy Watkins, expected to be the Rams' top receiver this season, was blanketed by Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman and did not have a catch. The play was blocked well, and Austin used his speed to get into the end zone for the first points of the game. They have developed a solid run game and Jared Goff has shown why he was the first overall pick previous year.

The answer is important.

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

Just when Seattle thought that it had found its lead running back, they have to start the search all over again.

With a chance to take command of the NFC West, the Rams (3-2) instead turned the ball over five times and totaled just three points from five trips to the Seahawks' red zone. Goff has had plenty of time on his passes to get the ball out.

Clark followed that up with the strip sack. For the Seahawks, it has been their inability to stop the run consistently as they now rank 27th at 134 rushing yards per game allowed. Todd Gurley isn't going to set yards-from-scrimmage records.

Goff's pass floated a bit and came up short.
