Bear in mind, Los Angeles is on the road again next week in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans. The Seahawks did lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, but Russell Wilson still threw for three touchdowns and the Seahawks have an awesome record in the month of December with him at the helm. You can affect the outcome of this game.
But this game is at home.
The Rams dominated Seattle in every phase of the game.
After 2½ quarters and four touchdowns scored, Gurley was no longer needed. The Rams have an explosive offense, but they'll face a tough challenge going to Seattle and facing the hostile "12th man" crowd. "Probably not", Rams defensive end Robert Quinn said. "I think when we started scoring early and often, you can start feeling (the crowd) kind of tiresome down a little bit".
Seattle sits one game back of the Rams in the NFC West. And Bobby Wagner must play.
"Did we expect a game like this? We felt that all week, and there was emotion behind that all week".
"This was just one of those wins where everything was clicking for us", Gurley said. This week, two of their best players entered a very public feud immediately after the game. Let's just hope everyone can get along. "These guys been kicking our ass for the last 10, 15 years so you've got to enjoy it and you've got to take advantage of a situation like this". "We knew we had to go out there and win a game".
Whether the Rams wanted to admit it or not, it was a statement victory.
"We have a lot of respect for Seattle", McVay said.
