Rams complete a second half comeback to steal the joy from the Seahawks 17-16

Coming off a bye week, the Rams knew that they needed a victory against the Seahawks to stay in that mixing pot of contenders fighting for a playoff spot. Sitting at 3-6, there was a very bleak chance that Matthew Stafford and crew could pull off some magic and get into the playoff conversation, but first they needed to pull out a victory against their division rival.


Things did not go well for the Rams in the first half. Stafford onlyhad 62 yards in two quarters with only a touchdown. You can tell that Stafford and his receivers wasn't on the same page. He missed at least four big plays that could have went for scores and struggled on third down conversions. The Rams were 1 out of 4 converting on third downs and their rookie superstar Puka Nacua was a non-factor, only catching 1 ball for four-yards.


LA continued to struggle in the second half. The offensive line had trouble holding their water and allowed Stafford to be hammored over and over again. The nightmare for LA continued as Cooper Kupp exited the game with an ankle injury. Despite all the drop passes and penalties, the Rams cut the Seahawks' lead to two, after Darrell Henderson Jr. scored on a 1-yard touchdown run with six minutes left in regulation.


The Rams got a huge Thanksgiving gift as Drew Lock threw a pick and gave the Rams a chance to turn the turnover to points. La did just that and capped off a late field goal to espace with the win.
