The second part of the principled standoff in the West NFC is unlikely to add points to the Los Angeles Rams, but it can ruin the life of the Seattle Seahawks. Now the team of coach Pete Carroll is in first place in the division (10-2), but Rams have not everything with chances for the playoffs (7-5). However, both those and others may well get there. Therefore, the game in Los Angeles is very important. By the way, in the first match of this series Seattle won (30:29).
Only one point, but the team in the game simply did not allow Rams to score a field goal 1:27 before the end of the match. It is interesting that in that meeting, the Seahawks defense intensified precisely at the end of the match, having made an interception, and only then preventing it from realizing a goal from the game. I must say that in the first match, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson had 268 yards and four passes in touchdown. Ranningback Chris Carson caught one of these touchdowns and also scored 118 yards. The loser quarterback Jared Goff threw 395 yards with a touchdown, but also with an interception. But Todd Gerley’s runback was very bad, having made only 51 yards, even though he brought in two touchdowns.
