Seattle Seahawks vs Los Angeles Rams 12/08/2019
The Seattle Seahawks are literally the birds of prey in the NFL right now. They just outscored the Minnesota Vikings in their last exciting matchup. The Seahawks posted a 37-30 endgame score in that one. QB Russell Wilson was all heart, going for 21/31 with 240 passing yards. He connected 2 thrown TDs and 1 pick. Chris Carson also dished out a stellar performance. He notched an impressive 23 rush attempts, helping his team gain 102 yards. His personal victory that night, however, was a rushing TD. DK Metcalf made the receivers proud by receiving the ball 6 times for 75 yards.
The Seahawks ate up a total of 444 yards as compared to their opponent’s 354 yards. The almost-100 yard gap proved critical in securing the Seahawks’ victory. Even though they were ahead, the Seahawks didn’t take their defensive line for granted. They limited the opponent to a 58% throw completion rate. The opponent wasn’t able to rush that much either- only 14 rush attempts got through.
The Seahawks are the dark horse of the NFL right now. They’ve come from out of nowhere to stake their claim on the leaders’ circle. They have a scary rush engine- they rushed 43 out of 76 plays. That should give other teams an indicator of why they’re able to score so much.

Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams had an effortless game against the Arizona Cardinals. They trampled the opposition with a 34-7 scoreboard. QB Jared Goff was on beast mode, going for 32/43 with an astonishing 424 air yards. He finished two thrown TDs. RB Todd Gurley II was the top rusher. He rushed the ball 19 times for 95 yards. He also connected 1 rushing TD. Meanwhile, the receiving end was championed by Robert Woods, who notched an amazing 172 yards via 13 receptions.
The Rams’ previous game figures are right through the roof. It seems that the Rams had an easy time figuring out the opponents’ weaknesses, and they merely pushed the right buttons. The Rams had a tight throw defense, limiting attempts to only 56% completion rate. They were less guarded with regard to rush attempts and didn’t contest 21 rush attacks.
The Rams ran for 30 out of 76 plays. This means that they had faith in the mixed-offense tactic, which has been a mixed bag for different NFL teams. The Rams won the tale of the tape by a staggering margin. They gained 549 yards as opposed to the opponent’s 198. That stat alone already signaled a clear victory for the Rams.
