3. Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks were supposed to come out, at home, and win this game fairly easily. After all, the Rams didn't have their number one offensive playmaker in Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford could have been on a downward trend at 35 years old, coming off injury last year.

Instead, Seattle laid an egg. The Seahawks hardly possessed the ball in this one and converted on just two third downs. Seattle ended the game with only 180 yards of offense. Geno Smith went 16-for-26 with 112 yards passing and one touchdown.

The Seahawks actually ran the ball fairly efficiently, going for 85 yards on only 18 carries. It's a shame they weren't able to expound on that area in a game that got out of hand.

Seattle endured a few injuries to significant names, couldn't stop the Rams on third down and only posted 12 yards of total offense in the second half. It was just about as bad as it could get for Seattle, but thankfully, they are a more talented team than Arizona and didn't fall into last place here.
