The Seattle Seahawks edged past the Los Angeles Rams in Sunday’s encounter between the two teams. To any NFL enthusiast, the Seahawks are very well-known. However, for those who do not know, let me inform you that the Seahawks are a professional football team in American football. They compete in the West Division of the NFL. They are a highly successful team in NFL  history, with 4 NFL Championship titles, 8 Conference titles and 18 Division Championship titles to their name. 

However, in the clash against the Rams, they failed to do justice to their fame and name. In fact, in the fourth quarter, they were behind the Rams. Though they drew the scores to a level, they failed to make the cut within regulation time. Finally, in overtime, they snatched the victory from the clutches of the Rams with a field goal by Jason Myers. The final scoreline stood at 19-16 in the favour of the Seahawks. Therefore, if you wish to know more about the match, then this article is the perfect stop for you. Keep reading this article to know what went on in the clash between the Seahawks and the Rams.

The Seahawks began the match in some style. In the first quarter of the game, they scored 6 goals, while Rams managed to pull only three back. Therefore, after such a solid start to the clash, it was expected that the Seahawks would carry that form on throughout the match. However, the reality was just the opposite. In the second quarter of the game, the entire team faded away as the Rams not only levelled the total score but also took the lead of 7 goals. 

What is more disappointing is that the Rams have been out of form for a long time. Their title hopes faded long ago and they started the match against the Seahawks, without most of their star performers. In addition, the Seattles had the home advantage. Therefore,  it was expected that they would cruise to victory. But the second quarter of the game changed the picture greatly. The defence of the Rams played exceptionally well, as did their scorers. As a result, at halftime, the Rams were ahead by 13-6.

However, the Seattles understood the seriousness of the game and started scoring in the third half. Though they opened the scoring, the Rams quickly pulled one back. In the game’s final quarter, the Seattles tried their best to make the winning goal, but the Rams’ defence was as solid as a rock. However, Myers missed a shot and the score was tied at 16-16 at the end of the regulation time.

In the overtime also the Rams looked formidable. However, when Baker Mayfield threw an interception to Van Jefferson, the winning move started. The game-winning drive from Myers did not miss the mark this time, as the Seattles settled for a hard-earned victory. The match ended with a scoreline of 16-19 in favour of the Seahawks.

Concluding Lines

It is true that at the end of the day, the result counts. Therefore, the Seattles have reasons to rejoice. However, their performance was really poor at times. The Rams were in their weakest possible set up and that too, in the home stadium of the Seattles. Therefore, it should have been an easy win for them.

However, the fighting spirit of the Rams and the miserable performance of the Seattles in patches made the game difficult. Though the Seattles have their hopes of playoff alive, they need to make much improvement from Sunday’s performance, to make it deep into the title run.
