In what has been a generally disappointing season, the LA Rams gave the NFL a glimpse of the team that went to the Super Bowl last season in this divisional matchup.
Sean McVay’s men beat an impressive Seattle Seahawks side 28-12 on Sunday, that leaves the San Francisco 49ers as the current one seed in the NFC.
The Rams dominated the vast majority of the game, with the defense keeping tabs on Russell Wilson and Jared Goff’s offense finally clicking into gear after a spluttering campaign.
Wilson faced constant pressure throughout and failed to throw a touchdown all night, while Goff finished with 22/31, 293 yards and two touchdowns. In what was a poor outing, the Seahawks displaying an alrming lack of urgency that ultimately cost them.
The result means that the 49ers (who won at the Saints) now lead the way in the conference with 11-2. While the Seahawks sit just behind them in the NFC West with a 10-3 record – the same as the Packers and Saints.
The Rams (8-5) still have a chance to make the postseason as a wildcard but must overhaul the Vikings (9-4) who currently occupy the 6th seed.
