That’s right. The Seahawks have won 2 games in a row for the first time this season! And it was pretty! Each time we play the Rams, it usually turns out to be close, no matter how much parity there is between the 2 teams.
The Seahawks dominated this contest with the next meeting coming on Monday Night Football! Is it time to get excited about a possible winning season?
Let’s start with the defense. Like usual, they were solid and ferocious.
Chris Clemons (By the way. Yes I did play the Clemons drinking game), Raheem Brock and even Red Bryant put constant pressure on Rams QB Sam Bradford to keep him uncomfortable in the pocket, causing lots of miscues.
Kam Chancellor made another fine-inducing hit that should not be flagged.
Nonetheless, it was a highlight reel “WOOOO” hit to be remembered, whether it costs $20,000 or not.
One of the highlights on defense, though, was one of my personal favorite plays in the game. Red Bryant jumped back off the line and into coverage and had a chance to make a play as a Bradford pass was broken up and tipped in the air.
The big man flew to the ball, snatched it from the air and rumbled a couple yards down the field before being tackled. While laying on the ground, with his teammates piling on and cheering, you could his warcry of excitement.
What a play, what a moment.
The offense was good, but not at their best, although they got the job done soundly. Marshawn Lynch almost surpasses the 100 yard mark and Justin Forsett broke off a nice run for a touchdown, even losing his shoe during the play.
The key play, though, was the opening offensive play when Tarvaris Jackson tossed the ball to Sidney Rice in what looked like an endaround play.
Leon Washington constantly put the Seahawks in good field position with his stellar kick returns, constantly picking up lots of positive yardage.
Jon Ryan‘s leg got a bit of work and he even flubbed a punt, although he’s allowed a freebie here or there with he booming punts he’s delivered this season. Steve Hauschka’s leg, however, got a rest for the most part as opposed to the 5 field goals from last week.
There is lots to smile about after this Rams game, but the Seahawks must find ways to keep that kind of play consistent.
Savor this win, Seahawks fans, as the team has a tough matchup next weekend against the Redskins.
Can they make it 3 in a row?
Those at CenturyLink better do their part, that’s for sure.
