Seahawks vs. Rams: Highlights, game tracker and more”

Pete Carroll will lead the Seattle Seahawks onto the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum turf to play the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The other most improved stat has been his completion percentage. However, last Sunday, Seattle managed to run the scoreboard up on the Colts 46-18.

Rawls had two big games when he returned late last season, including a franchise playoff record with 161 yards in a wild-card round win over Detroit.

The Seattle Seahawks running back practiced all last week and had fully recovered from the high ankle sprain he suffered in the preseason.

Lane was injured last week against the Colts and his absence means Seattle will start rookie Shaquill Griffin in the base defense with Justin Coleman entering in the nickel.

Rams head coach Sean McVay told a group of media personnel on Friday that Joyner is "progressing really well" and the team is just being cautious with an injury that has bothered Joyner since LA's Thursday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers back on September 21. Goff's improvement has allowed for Todd Gurley to have much more space in the ground game. This has been the case again this season, and people seem to be forgetting what happens in Seattle during the end of the regular season. There is another factor looming large as the two NFC West rivals matchup - the division could be at stake on Sunday afternoon. Los Angeles is playing with a lot of confidence, especially offensively, in a way they have not for a very long time.

McVay has set Goff up to experience success with a game plan that helps his confidence by calling plays with short, safe throws.

A win on Sunday would give the Seahawks their first road win of the Season, and would put them in a tie for first place heading into their bye week.

What will it take for the Seahawks to win in Los Angeles?

The Rams will struggle to move the ball for the first time all year and Russell Wilson will do just enough.

A somewhat improbable pass from Goff to Tyler Higbee got the Rams to the Seattle 40 and then another to Robert Woods gave the Rams the ball at the 20 with 17 seconds left.

Paramedics tended to him and he was rushed to the hospital where he stayed overnight. The Seahawks didn't simply invest those resources in Pocic to have him sit on the sidelines.

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

In all, the Seahawks forced five turnovers, three in the final 15:48 of the game.

The Seahawks needed Jackson to add depth on the defensive line with Cliff Avril out with a neck/spine injury and Quinton Jefferson - signed on Monday to add depth with Avril out indefinitely - out at least a month after breaking his hand in practice on Wednesday. If they can keep the defense from getting exhausted out by the Seahawks' fast paced style, they should have a very good chance of winning.

They had seemingly no answer for the Los Angeles Rams' offense, which gained 124 yards in the first quarter to jump out to an early lead.
