Rams' Lamarcus Joyner likely to miss second straight game

Jared Goff faked a handoff and began to roll right, but his foot got caught in the turf and his body collapsed, a loss of 10 with the Los Angeles Rams charging against an unrelenting defense.

If Lane sits out, cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin and Justin Coleman will likely take on an increased load. Not only that, but the Rams defensive line has tended to manhandle Seattle up front. If the Rams want to have success they'll need to pound the ball with Todd Gurley and limit the number of throws that Jared Goff has to make.

"We've seen the Rams and they have been explosive on offense and has really controlled the ball", Carroll said. The Rams went back to Kupp for Seattle's only other punt. Los Angeles may not have won Sunday, but they proved they belong at the top of the division-one they haven't won since 2003.

The win last week over Dallas on the road was a huge one in terms of the Rams proving that they belong as a possible playoff contender. After a home run victory against the 49ers last week, the offense was throttled by the Rams. "This was the No. 1 offense and I think we did a great job". But they needed 97. The Seahawks have the No. 12 ranked running game. The Rams have not lost in three tries against the Seahawks at the Coliseum: in 1976, "79 and a year ago". Seattle attempted 21 passes on 28 plays in the second quarter as it finally got it offense going just enough to pull out the victory.

Eastern Washington University's Cooper Kupp had the potentially winning touchdown pass go off his hands as he dived in the end zone open with 8 seconds left. Rick Mirer threw three touchdowns passes for Seattle that day. The Seahawks defeated the Rams 16-10. Seattle has throttled Gurley in three games against him.

It's fair to start with McVay, the 31-year-old first-year coach and play-caller who deservedly earned high praise as the Rams scored the most points of any National Football League team in the season's first four weeks.

The Rams have always been a pill for Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson. Donald has four sacks in six games against the Seahawks. Lacy and Rawls were hoping to step in for injured Chris Carson and get the ground game going.

When they had to have them, the Seahawks made the big plays to stop the Rams in key moments, including a final drive when the Rams reached the Seattle 20. And this time the Seahawks' $87.6 million franchise quarterback has healthy legs to do that.

"That's why Earl is a Hall of Fame player, " said Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin.

But Los Angeles' defense was not as decisive as Seattle's. Russell Wilson has shown over the last six quarters that he can overcome poor offensive line play.

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. They kept the Rams out of the end zone on all five of their red-zone trips. Goff and Gurley are evolving into a potentially unsafe duo for Los Angeles, which has been a much different team on offense in the early going. Absolutely a problem for SEA's iffy offensive line. The leader is Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein with 56.
