The Seattle Seahawks went toe to toe with the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. In fact, they held a one-point lead entering the fourth quarter before the Rams rallied for a 36-31 win to remain one of only three NFL teams with one loss in 2018.
Seattle actually led on three occasions during Sunday’s contest. However, it was the Rams who were on top when the game ended. Nevertheless, the Seahawks once again proved that they have what it takes to hang with one of the best teams in the league.
The Seahawks are still on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoffs. At 4-5, they are still a game behind the NFC’s current No. 6 seed, the Minnesota Vikings, and their remaining schedule includes several hurdles.
Following a home game against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11, Seattle visits the Carolina Panthers in Week 12. Matchups with the Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs also remain, but the Seahawks also have two meetings with the San Francisco 49ers and one with the Arizona Cardinals remaining. If they can take care of the 49ers and Cardinals as well as win two of the other four games, perhaps nine wins will be good enough to get them into the postseason.
It’s going to take some work, but if the Seahawks can continue to play at the level they played at on Sunday, they are fully capable of making a late-season run. Despite suffering a five-point defeat at the hands of the Rams, here’s a look at the three best performances from Seattle’s Week 10 loss.
