Los Angeles Rams: 3 Keys to Victory in Week 10 vs. Seahawks

Stop the Seahawks Run Game

Another reason the first meeting between these teams was close, was the rushing attack of the Seahawks. The Seahawks were able to have their way on the ground in Week 5. They would rush for 190 yards total on 32 attempts and a touchdown.

Chris Carson was the biggest threat, as he rushed for 116 yards on 19 carries in Week 5. Carson is questionable for Sunday’s game though, failing to practice at all this week.

No matter who is running the ball, the Rams cannot allow the Seahawks to repeat their success on the ground. The Rams haven’t allowed a 100-yard rusher since Week 5, but running backs have still had success against them.

Just last week, Alvin Kamara rushed for 82 yards on 19 carries, with two touchdowns. He also added on four receptions for 34 yards and another score.

Luckily for the Rams, the Seahawks don’t possess a running back like Kamara. They still can’t overlook this backfield though, as it has already had success against this Rams defense.

If the Seahawks are able to run the ball successfully, they will likely be able to dominate the time of possession. The last thing the Rams want, would be to have their high-octane offense sitting on the sideline for the majority of this contest.

If the Rams hope to begin another winning streak, they must hinder the Seahawk’s ability to run the ball throughout the entire game.
