Here are three key takeaways from the Los Angeles Rams 36-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.
After suffering their first loss of 2018 to the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Rams were hoping to bounce back in the strongest way possible in Week 10 during their tough battle with the Seattle Seahawks. It wasn’t always pretty since there were a few times in which Sean McVay and company looked like they were going to let the game slip away, but at the end of the day, it was the Rams who came through with the 36-31 win over the Seahawks to improve to 9-1 on the season.
All of a sudden, Los Angeles finds themselves in great position to potentially clinch the NFC West before Thanksgiving even rolls around, as they currently sit on top of the division with a comfortable four-game lead over Seattle following Sunday’s victory. Of course, as great as it would be to see the Rams win the division for a second year in a row, the real test will come down to whether they have what it takes to finish with the No. 1 seed in the NFC over the Saints, which won’t be easy since the team has now won eight games in a row.
It’s hard to believe there was once a time in which a team like Los Angeles sweeping a team like Seattle sounded like a long shot when seeing how they were always considered a strong contender for the Super Bowl, but times have changed over the last few years. Now that Week 10 is officially in the books for the Rams, here are some key takeaways from the team’s ninth win of the season over the Seahawks.
