Rams vs. Seahawks Point Spread: NFL Week 5 Odds, Prediction

Seahawks RB Mike Davis excelled in Chris Carson's absence

Seahawks RB Mike Davis excelled in Chris Carson's absence

It seems like forever since the Los Angeles Rams played a football game after taking down the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night during Week 4, but luckily the team will return for a tough test on Sunday when they take on the Seattle Seahawks on the road.

Had Carroll not called the timeout, the clock would have restarted following a measurement from the play before, and the Rams likely would not have snapped the ball until 1:06 or so was left. Santos made it, but the Rams had momentum and were driving easily.

Gurley scored on a 2-yard run in the first quarter, and added TDs of 2 and 5 yards in the second half. "Unfortunately it happened. They got a great break out of that. You've just got to be able to close out those close games".

"Russell, his way to make big plays, put us in a position to win and in the end we get knocked out of field goal range with a penalty".

Fluker disagreed with the penalty, which negated a 5-yard Mike Davis run that would have put the Seahawks (2-3) at the 30. There's a lot of plays in that game that probably could have warranted a penalty throw and it happened on that play right then. "But I wasn't really nervous because I prepared myself very well". In Seattle's previous game against the Chicago Bears, when the going got tough, the Seahawks abandoned the running game entirely and failed to move the ball for almost the entire game, therefore, history is not a friend of the Seahawks in this match.

To Carroll, the bigger issue was what happened just before that, when the Seahawks drove to the Rams' 32, and then three plays later had to punt on a fourth-and-23 at the Los Angeles 45.

Against the Seahawks, Reynolds, a fourth-round pick from Texas A&M, finished with two catches for 39 yards and rushed for 10 yards on one carry.

The clock would have stopped anyway for the measurement, which showed Gurley just short. He said yes - had he not, the game clock would have started, as rules require it to do after a measurement. Even for a coach who's as aggressive and trailblazing as Sean McVay, there was no surprise when punter Johnny Hekker came on the field. I mean, shoot, I don't know how much you can ask for.

They ran the ball with attitude, again.

The largest fall in activity came from refinances with refinance volume falling 3% last week, which was 32% less than a year ago. Costs for would-be homebuyers are climbing.

"I was pretty prepared, but there's always the anxious feeling", said Hodge, an undrafted free agent from Prairie View A&M who began the season on the practice squad. "Fortunately you guys don't have to kill me because it worked".

"That's the way it goes sometimes, " Baldwin said.

"I appreciated it, " Clark said.

"That was what we wanted to do with the offense this week and we got it done, " said Moore.

With a win against the Seahawks, the Rams would extend their lead to three games in the NFC West. Odds makers have penciled in the visiting side Rams as 7.5-point favourites in this game.

Santos atoned for the miss with a 39-yard field goal with 6:05 remaining to give the Rams a 33-31 lead, capping a 61-yard drive that took 4 ½ minutes.

The Seahawks defense will be tasked with slowing down a Rams offense averaging 35 points per game thus far. Gurley's third rushing TD on the second play of the fourth quarter pulled the Rams within 31-30.

And it left Carroll coming back to what could have been. Most of the hit was with Thompson's shoulder, but there was some helmet-to-helmet impact and Cooks appeared to be immediately knocked out. It cost us the game. "So it was right there".
