Todd Gurley promised Rams fans a win this week after the team got shut out in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football, and Los Angeles delivered.
This was an ugly game, with no touchdowns scored by either team. Penalties slowed down both teams, as did mistakes.
The Seahawks looked like they might have an opportunity to take the game over late in the fourth quarter, but a facemask penalty committed by Seahawks defensive end Cassius Marsh against Case Keenum kept the Rams’ drive alive.
Russell Wilson was playing through a high ankle sprain he suffered in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins, and the injury may have slowed him down. Wilson was sacked twice and fumbled the ball once.
Prior to Sunday’s game, Wilson had an active streak of 17 straight games with a passing touchdown, which was the longest in the NFL. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert now has the longest active streak with 12.
The Rams own the Seahawks of late, winning four of the last five meetings between these division rivals.
The Rams have yet to score a touchdown in the 2016 season, but they were still able to get into field goal range enough against the Seahawks to get the job done and secure a win.
