LA Rams 33 – Seattle Seahawks 31

The Los Angeles Rams continued their winning streak with a tight 33-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

This was a close game – and one on the road that many teams would have lost. But not the Rams!

There is only one other team, the Kansas City Chiefs, who have yet to lose a game. If this trend continues, Week 11 could be the most exciting of the season.

Seattle Seahawks, life after the LOB

Los Angeles Rams 33 – Seattle Seahawks 31

The Seattle Seahawks played the current divisional leader, the Los Angeles Rams, at home on Sunday. Although the game ended in a close loss for Seattle, the fans got a glimpse of what life after the LOB would look like, and it wasn’t all bad.

Hey, remember when teams used to be able to play defense? Yeah, me too. Good times. Well, the Seattle Seahawks had one of the best of all times. The Legion of Boom will go down in history for their stealth-like quality that destroyed offenses, including the highest scoring offense of all time, the Peyton Manning led 2013 Denver Broncos.

Los Angeles Rams claim victory in the “Battle of Los Angeles”

Los Angeles Rams 35 – Los Angeles Chargers 23

The Los Angeles Rams are on a roll! For the first time in more than a decade, the Rams are off to a 3-0 start.  They have been favored in every game thus far and covered the spread each time. Does this mean they will be able to beat the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night?

Rams quarterback Jared Goff seems to be getting more comfortable and improving every game. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, he went for three touchdowns, an interception and completed 29 of his 36 passes. He’s got an arm that allows him to throw over the middle of the field and doesn’t seem afraid to take chances with long balls.

Seahawks rise above drama, get their first win

Seahawks 24 – 13 Cowboys

The Seattle Seahawks had a lot of what could have been distractions the days prior to their week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys. However, once on the field, they were completely focused and ready to get their first win.

To be totally honest, I waited a little longer than normal to write this article. In fact, this is the second time in a week I’ve paused my writing “just in case”. That “just in case” would be Seahawks safety Earl Thomas.

It has been well documented that Thomas is unhappy with his contract, including a holdout during the preseason. However once he arrived at the facility, ready to play week 1, most fans thought that would be the end of the drama. How little did we know.

Chicago Bears Matt Nagy on track his way

Bears 16 – 14 Cardinals

The expectations for the outcome of Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals were supposed to be low. If you were expecting a blowout, then your expectations were a bit too high. The Bears defeated the Cardinals 16-14 thanks to the defense.

The Bears defense was a little slow at first, including a couple of botched plays in coverage from linebacker Danny Trevathan. Those two ended up in touchdowns. But with some motivation, the Bears defense came alive and held quarterback Sam Bradford to 0 points for the rest of the game.

However, Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky struggled throughout the day, especially when he would drop his eyes the moment the Cardinals would pass rush. He failed to connect on the deep balls but did just enough to lead his team to victory.

Bears defeat Seahawks but have glaring questions

Seahawks 17 -24 Chicago

The Chicago Bears pulled off a win at home in Soldier Field against the Seattle Seahawks and it felt good!

It has been long overdue, the Bears won a game at home in regular season. So you could imagine my surprise when some fans expressed disapproval instead of praise.

The Seattle Seahawks entered this game with a depleted defensive core. The absence of K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner was definitely felt on both sides of the ball. But it was the Chicago Bears defense that sealed the win for the team.

However, there are a few glaring questions that need some answers.

The banged up Seahawks face Chicago Bears on MNF

Dayna O’Gorman Senior Sports Editor

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

The Seattle Seahawks are once again on the road this week, heading to Chicago to face a strong Bears team.

The Chicago Bears have improved greatly this offseason. We saw that improvement in their opening game against Green Bay last Sunday. Due to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers pulling off a Superman level performance last week, the Bears didn’t get the win, but the strength of the team can’t be denied.

After watching both the Chicago and the Seattle games last week, I should be quite worried for the Seahawks. Chicago looked really good in its matchup against Green Bay. But its Monday night, kids. And we know what that means. Its Seattle’s favorite day of the week.

Los Angeles Rams begin season with a victory over the Oakland Raiders

Los Angeles Rams 33 – Oakland Raiders 13

 

The Los Angeles Rams came out of Week 1 with a win over the Oakland Raiders. Even though going into this matchup the Rams were the superior team, questions still remained as to how the team would gel after most of the starters were sidelined throughout the preseason.

This game was a bit of “A Tale of Two Halves.” The first half had the Rams looking a bit rusty, but adjustments were made at halftime. The Raiders were simply outplayed and outscored the entire time as the Rams garnered 23 unanswered points.

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas ends his hold out

Senior Sports Editor

By Dayna O’Gorman //@DaynaOG

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has been holding out during the preseason looking for a contract extension or a trade. Today, that hold out ends without either being accomplished.

Thomas announced he will be returning to his team, but his announcement carried a bit of anger with it.
