According to NFL Next Gen Stats research, Wilson threw for 130 yards on the run, his highest total in a game in the past four seasons. Wilson then ran away from the Rams pass rush before throwing down the left flank while on the move. He had touchdown passes of 13 yards to Tyler Lockett and 40 yards to DK Metcalf in the first half.
Said quarterback Jared Goff: "It was great". He had gained 1,915 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns between his two fumbles.
The Seahawks (3-1) are coming off a solid performance in their 27-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Wilson answered with a seven-play, 75-yard drive, capped off with his ideal pass to Lockett. But in true Seahawks fashion, they sealed a 30-29 victory after Wilson executed a late scoring drive. He now has 12 touchdown passes and 0 interceptions on the year. But he also threw two interceptions and the Rams abandoned their running game. Myers hit a 42-yard field goal to cut the lead down to 26-24.
Some poor decisions in the end, including a false start penalty that backed the Rams up on their potential game-winning drive resulting in an unsuccessful 44-yard field goal attempt, left the Rams on the losing end. In a division game neither team can afford to lose, Thompson's play was one of the biggest of the game. Did you see that thing?
"I thought it had a chance to come back in", Zuerlein said, via The Los Angeles Times, "but any time I swing like that it's usually not a recipe for success".
Backup Malcolm Brown, who had assumed a larger role in spelling Gurley through four games, rushed for 3 yards on one carry. Gurley had 15 carries for 51 yards and two touchdowns, but also fumbled.

Rams receiver Cooper Kupp leads the NFC with 388 yards receiving as he returns to the state where the Yakima native was born and raised and attended college at Eastern Washington. It isn't always easy being a fan, but when Seattle wins the way they did against Los Angeles it might make one remember why they are a fan in the first place.
