Seahawks @ Rams

Recommended Posts



The Rams defeated the Seahawks in Week 5, 33-31, in a game featuring five lead changes. It was the 41st meeting in the series (regular season and playoffs); the 64 total points are the fourth most in any game between the teams. The Rams have 75 points in their last two games against Seattle.

The Rams are the seventh team since 1950 to compile at least 4000 yards in their first nine games of a season, and the third Rams team to do so (1951 and 2000). They lead the NFL in rushing yards per game (144.3) and are fifth in passing yards per contest (302.8); no other team is in the top 10 in both.

The Seahawks are 1-4 this season in games decided by eight points or fewer, compared to 3-0 in games decided by nine or more points. During Russell Wilson's tenure in Seattle, the team is 44-5 in games decided by at least nine points but just 25-29-1 otherwise.

The Seahawks (31.8) and Rams (30.2) are two of three teams that run the ball at least 30 times per game. The Seahawks' rush percentage of 50.8 leads the league, and Los Angeles ranks third at 46.6.

Wilson enters play with 69 career regular-season wins, tied with Matt Hasselbeck for second in team history and one behind the franchise's all-time leader, Dave Krieg. Since Week 7 of 2017, Wilson has an NFL-high 44 touchdown passes, but Seattle's record is only 10-9 in that span.

Todd Gurley II has scored 35 total touchdowns since the start of last season, already the most by any player in a two-season span since 2006-2007 (LaDainian Tomlinson -- 51). Gurley has scored TDs in 12 straight games; if he extends the streak to 13, it would be tied for the fourth-longest streak in NFL history.
