The Rams cannot only take complete control of the NFC West with a win, they can propel themselves up to the upper eschalon of NFC teams. One common narrative perpetrated by the media has been, what's wrong with the Seahawks? Like many wins for Seattle, it was ugly. Not only has it taken time for Wilson most years to find his rhythm, but he's also notorious for being a slow starter during games.
I know things can change after the bye week next week, and the Seahawks' history suggests that it will.
As Doug Baldwin said after the game so succinctly, "Finally".
The 2013 Seahawks were different for many reasons. LA finished the day with 375 total yards, 21 first downs, and four trips into the red zone. Also do not be surprised if they give the playoff teams a run for their money for this season. Their starting left tackle didn't make it out of training camp, rookie running back Chris Carson has been placed on the injured reserve and sack-machine Cliff Avril has already been ruled out for Sunday with a neck injury. But this year's defense hasn't lived up to its past smothering standards, as it is allowing 134 yards per game on the ground.

It wasn't a huge game offensively, but Graham contributed the key moment for the Seahawks on Sunday. The Seahawks look like a 9-7 team, maybe even an 8-8 team to me. We'll have to see how Russell Wilson and the Seahawks' offense performs this Sunday.
But the Rams were 0 of 4 in the red zone and couldn't produce any last-second magic as the they were turned away near the end of the game on the Seattle 20-yard line.
"But he was right down there knocking on the door to win the game, so he did pretty good today". To keep the defense well rested Goff and the offense will have to extend drives and keep the chains moving. Gurley had 14 carries for 43 yards and only two catches for seven yards. The defense is spending the majority of the game on the field, which is causing defenders to tire late in games.

If the Seahawks offensive line can improve from terrible to not as bad, then the Seahawks will be back to dominating as they have in years past. We were all expecting the Rams to come and face some struggles early on.
"The flow of the game kind of dictates and determines whatever plays we feel like are going to work best", McVay said.
And the sad part is, the Rams actually moved the ball pretty well against Seattle's highly-regarded "Legion of Boom" defense. The Cardinals had an awesome season in 2015, but that didn't stop the Seahawks from making the playoffs as a Wild Card team and winning their first playoff game on the road.
Carroll knows the Rams' style all too well - he won a national championship with a high-octane attack.
Despite struggling in stopping the run early on this season, the Rams still sport one of the best defensive lines in the league with Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers, and Robert Quinn all providing a hard matchup for the Seahawks' offensive line.
Linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright could prove to be the Seahawks' best weapons for countering Gurley.
