NFL Week Four Match Up: Seahawks at Rams

NFL Week Four Match Up: Seahawks at Rams

The Rams are 3-1 on the season with their biggest victory coming over the Dallas Cowboys. Rams rookie Cooper Kupp barely missed a diving TD grab on third down, and Goff's fourth-down pass to Kupp was too low.

The rookie receiver was a third-round pick in April after a tremendously productive career at Eastern Washington and has been favored target for Kupp early in the season. They started the year 11-1 before losing two of their final four games.

The Seahawks did prevail, albeit barely. The Rams are slight favorites to win the game, now listed as 1.5 point favorites against the spread.

"I don't know if it's a "Not so fast" moment", Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said. "Our demise was greatly exaggerated".

Blair Walsh converted three field goals, and Russell Wilson threw a touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham for the Seahawks only score.

Despite the Seahawks being one of the most dominant teams in the National Football League in recent years, the Rams have presented a challenge for Seattle every single season. The Seahawks offensive line is frightful and is causing numerous three-and-outs per game.

While it's unclear if Seattle will continue standing throughout the season, the team has made it apparent they will stick together.

Wilson struggled all game, completing just 24-of-37 passes for 5.4 yards per attempt.

"What (the Seahawks) do defensively is tremendous", Goff said, "and they did a good job shutting us down offensively".

India failed to cause problems for opponents, says coach Matos
But India's inability to maintain possession for more than two passes in the opposition half seemed to embolden them. The Turks had the better of the first half, with Ahmed Kutucu's headed goal from a corner putting them 1-0 in front.

Marcus Mariota unlikely to play Sunday
Without Mariota, the Titans would be without a quarterback who has to be accounted for both through the air and on the ground. The Titans have been involved in four high-scoring games so far and have scored 70 points combined in their two wins.

Aussie pain continues with soggy T20 loss
Indian fielding also has to be complimented for being discipline and India also clean bowled 6 batsmen of the visiting team . Test hopeful Marcus Stoinis will replace Smith in the T20 squad, while vice-captain David Warner will take over as captain.

"That was a phenomenal play", Carroll said. Lawrence, who has emerged as the NFL's sack leader with 7 1/2, will play a crucial role in corralling the quarterback and limiting the rest of the defense's exposure to big plays. "It was a special day for them".

"I think the oddest is probably most of the time when you go to places that people don't realize what role you have", he said. "I'm excited because they have that in their back pocket as they go take a little break right now".

That's an easy answer for me based on what we've seen so far.

Maybe not always, but in the wake of Seattle's first road win of the season, its implausibility called for a little hyperbole.

A former standout at Boston College, Johnson said he had "no idea", in advance, that he would be displacing Alexander, but the Rams had showed increased confidence in Johnson after he overcame an injury that sidelined him for the early part of training camp. "We've got to find a way to close the door".

"That secondary is tough, but so are we". "We have a lot of great playmakers. If I'm putting my hands on the ball, I've got to make that play". It's a learning opportunity, but you'd still like to win a game when you have the opportunity to win it.

Conversely, Wilson - under constant pressure from a harassing Rams defense - kept plays alive all afternoon with his knack for avoiding the rush. The Rams have scored 35 or more points in three of their four games this season. But it was ability to scamper away from pass-rushers and find a secondary receiver that was the difference. "He's one of the best players in this league, and it's because of that ability to extend plays with his feet, keep his eyes down the field and make some off-schedule throws".

- Wilson, Britt, Ifedi and Joeckel have still played every offensive snap this season.

Seattle, which trailed 10-0, wasn't as great as it was opportunistic.
