RAMS OUTLAST SEAHAWKS IN RETURN TO LOS ANGELES ESPN FIRST TAKE
Sunday was an uncommon day in Southern California as the Rams (1-1) came back to Los Angeles. Also, what an evening it was, as the returning saints shortcircuited a Russell Wilson two-minute walk to disturb the Seahawks (1-1) in a wounding 9-3 battle. Our takeaways:
this was a Jeff Fisher fever dream from space. The Seahawks dependably have their issues against the Rams. It’s one of the NFL’s more unusual patterns, and Sunday was no exemption. Russell Wilson dropped to 4-5 in his profession against the Rams on a day that saw him battered for two sacks and endless hits behind Seattle’s overwhelmed O-line. The lower leg sprain he endured a week ago obviously affected Wilson, whose last numbers – 22-of-35 going for 254 yards – look better on paper. Fans verged on seeing Wilson do the momentous on that busted last drive, yet the rebound missed the mark when running back Christine Michael bobbled the ball taking after an eight-yard get inside the Rams’ 30-yard line with not exactly a moment to play. On the off chance that no one but Fisher could confront Seattle consistently.
Falling off a uber unfortunate opener, Case Keenum opened the amusement with a nine-play, 54-yard drive for a field objective – the primary focuses for the Rams since last season. While Keenum kicks it into high gear credit for testing the ball downfield with fulfillments of 44, 36, 27 and 18 yards, he likewise neglected to dial up a touchdown with Los Angeles sitting first-and-objective at the Seattle four-yard line. Keenum tossed for a respectable 8.1 yards for each pass, making great utilization of wideout Kenny Britt and tight end Lance Kendricks. No one ought to confuse Keenum for a genuine NFL starter, however the length of Fisher longs for kicking three field objectives for each amusement, he has his man.
Seattle’s ground diversion was a non-starter as the ‘Birds of prey completed the primary half with 14 scrambles for 14 yards. Thomas Rawls has the confidence of this instructing staff, however was held to short seven yards on seven totes before leaving the amusement with a leg harm. Michael resembled the better runner – not hard to do today – warming up when permitted to move as the unchallenged lead pooch in the second half and furrowing for about the greater part of his 60 yards at 6.0 yards for each surge over the last 30 minutes.
Primary concern: the Rams are in an intense spot on offense. Rivals anticipate that them will nourish Todd Gurley from wire-to-wire and, along these lines, stack the crate suitably. The Rams runner amassed only 15 yards in the principal half before completing with 51 yards on the day. Subsequent to destroying the class for 141.5 yards for every diversion at 6.4 yards for each surge over his initial four NFL begins, Gurley found the middle value of only 66.4 yards at 3.9 yards for every tote over whatever is left of 2015. So far this year, he’s sitting at 49 yards for each excursion at only 2.7 yards for each endeavor. Sliced TO: Fantasy takes cracking off from east to west.
