Are the Rams the Real Deal?

The Seattle Seahawks early season struggles has left the door open for the Los Angeles Rams to come in and take the lead in the NFC West, something few online sportsbook betting fans could have imagined.

The bad news for the Cardinals is the Seahawks are trending upward.

Defense has been a definite problem for both teams in the early portion of the season.

Those are the types of questions that get asked when a team on a hot streak suddenly lays an egg in a big game against a divisional opponent.

Much has been made of how great the Rams offense is this year with 1,535 total yards, and averages of 113.5 yards rushing and 270.2 passing per game. Rams rookie John Johnson intercepted his pass in the second quarter and returned it 69 yards, but Wilson made a possible touchdown-saving tackle. "But he's a very talented guy that is going to win games". "And that's what shows up", Goff said after the game. "I think this is one of those games where everyone is looking for an excuse or somewhere to point a finger and I've got to point it at me, because our team obviously was not ready to play in all three phases".

The turnover set up a field goal that gave the Rams a 10-0 lead, and while the Seahawks later had some success throwing to tight ends covered by Johnson, the rookie seemed solid in his first National Football League start.

That would be it for and Rams' action on the scoreboard. Wilson's lone bright spot came on a 4-yard pass to Jimmy Graham for the Seahawks' lone touchdown of the day.

The Rams did have chances in the final moments. But for now, let's take a look at some of the factors that played into Sunday's loss to the Seahawks by discussing five takeaways for the Rams.

The Russian president spoke ahead of meetings with the leaders of key Opec members, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela . Putin said. "I think that all things change".

Ultimately, it was five turnovers for the Rams that doomed the team offensively, including two interceptions thrown by Goff.

"What they do defensively is tremendous", Los Angeles quarterback Jared Goff said. Los Angeles have scored 142 points in the first four games which is incredible from a team that was struggling so much past year.

Thomas, who had seven tackles, also had a fourth-quarter interception, but the strip to keep the Rams from scoring on their opening drive was a seven-point swing that proved pivotal. "Score was tight the whole time, every play mattered". The Seahawks offensive line is frightful and is causing numerous three-and-outs per game.

Seattle had a roller-coaster ride of a game last Sunday night against Indianapolis as they trailed the Colts 15-10 at halftime. Seattle led 31:16-28:44 in time of possession, including a 12:50-2:10 advantage in the second quarter.

San Francisco would answer.

"It's not just one play", receiver Robert Woods said. They've put up 35-plus points in three of their first four games, and they've hit the 340-yard mark in all four of 'em. Had quarterback Jameis Winston's final pass to OJ Howard been on target they would have stolen the win from the Patriots.

Clark is becoming a great player.

- The snap counts make clear a really big key to this game, that the Seahawks were able to contain the Rams' running game while still being in a nickel or dime defense for all but six plays - Wilhoite was in for just six snaps, the only six on which the Seahawks were in a base defense. The play was originally ruled a touchdown, but then reversed upon video review and was ruled a touchback. Wrote PFF: "The Seahawks defense held Todd Gurley in check, thanks in part to their cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Shaquill Griffin, who had 2 run stops each".
