"To no one's surprise, Rams' WR Cooper Kupp tore his ACL and is out for the season, per source", he reports. It was a great game that the Seahawks had a real chance to win.

Despite all of the pessimism up to this point, the Seahawks had another impressive showing against the Rams on Sunday.

Talib said Monday that he still hopes to return when the Rams face Detroit on December 2 in their first game back from their bye week.

Kupp has 40 catches for 566 yards and six touchdowns this season, providing reliable hands in the slot and a knack for big catches.

Wilson threw three touchdown passes, rushed for 92 yards and almost rallied the Seahawks (4-5) all the way back after his fumble. The win sets up a showdown between the best team in the AFC and one of the best in the NFC when LA travels to Mexico City for a Monday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs. "They turned the game around right there with a turnover right after that and scored, but that just excited our guys even more".

The success of the Seahawks' running game is what has Carroll confident about his team's hopes of contending for a playoff spot.

We've discussed Gurley's ongoing 13-game touchdown streak, which dates back to last season. Along with Kupp's struggles and Cooper's season-long absence, Los Angeles has been without cornerback Aqib Talib for the past seven games due to an ankle injury that required surgery. "It's been a tough week, where there's a lot of things that are a lot bigger than football going on this week", McVay said, referring to Woolsey Fire and Borderline bar mass shooting in Ventura County, where the Rams train. The defense will improve as it is well-coached and young.

The key difference for the Rams was holding Russell Wilson in check. After the Seattle defense held, he got the Seahawks to the Los Angeles 35 before throwing four straight incompletions in the final minute. Rashaad Penny, who was selected in the first round of last April's draft, had his first 100-yard game as a pro with 108 yards on 12 carries. Two plays later, he took a read-option handoff, made a slick cutback to the right and ran untouched to the end zone for an 18-yard score. It was the third time this season Seattle has allowed its opponent to average more than 6 yards per rush - it happened just seven times in the previous eight seasons. Lockett caught another touchdown pass against the Rams on a attractive throw from Wilson. We've got to take these one week at a time and start piling up some wins.

We also learned that once again, the Rams can respond to adversity and in close games.
