Seattle gashed L.A. for 273 yards rushing, which is the most the Rams have allowed since DeMarco Murray's breakout game in 2011. The Rams offense continues to excel and put points on the board while the defense continues to be inconsistent and as of yesterday, terribly undisciplined. Sean McVay was on a text-message chain with assistant coaches, including defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and defensive line coach Bill Johnson, who informed McVay that they were being evacuated from their homes.
For how long however is another discussion.
McVay said the week proved to be a challenge as focus shifted to ensuring the safety of the organization, but that the change in the practice schedule did not affect the team Sunday against the Seahawks. With a sweep of the Seahawks, the division is all but decided.
It didn't get better against Todd Gurley and the Rams. On Saturday, his team will follow a plan that they used in September during their short week of preparation for a Thursday night game against Minnesota. The Los Angeles Ram's running back is the most productive player at his position this year. Seattle has dropped two straight, falling to 4-5 and can't afford a third straight loss if it wants to remain in the playoff race.
