The Rams and Seahawks met up for an NFC West clash and it was the Rams who walked away with a 42-7 victory. Todd Gurley led the way for Los Angeles with 152 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Gurley also caught a receiving touchdown so it it was an electric 4 touchdown performance for the third year running back. Robert Woods had a decent day catching the ball for the Rams too he hauled in 45 receiving yards and 1 touchdown reception. Russell Wilson struggled in the loss for Seattle. Wilson threw for 142 yards, 1 touchdown, and no interceptions the lack of scoring really hurt the Seahawks. Luke Wilson did grab a touchdown reception for Pete Carroll’s team but not one player went over 100 yards in the rushing or receiving categories. The lack of offensive output and the nonexistent defense ultimately doomed the team from the state of Washington. It looks like LA will run away with this division and what a year it’s been for Sean McVay. The Rams had the worst offense in all of football in 2016, now with McVay at the helm this team is the highest scoring offense in the entire NFL. That drastic improvement is because McVay allows Goff to be himself. What that means is Goff is able to operate out of the shotgun more frequently and do what he is best at. The other main thing McVay did was unleash Todd Gurley. Those two adjustments have helped completely turn around the Rams organization which has been a lot of fun to watch. With Carson Wentz out for the season with a knee injury the Eagles aren’t the threat they were for most the season. That opens the door for Goff and the Rams who will be a serious contenders when the playoffs begin.
