The Los Angeles Rams won their first game in their new home city Sunday, stunning the Seattle Seahawks with a 9-3 win.
The game was as ugly as the score suggests, as both teams fought with defense and poor turnovers.
The Seahawks offense, which underwhelmed all game, looked to be in position to pull off a comeback win in the final seconds when it got to the Rams’ 45-yard line with just under a minute left.
On third-and-10, quarterback Russell Wilson hit running back Christine Michael with a pass. But as Michael dived toward the first-down line, he fumbled, and the Rams secured it. Game over.
While the Rams offense didn’t impress much more than when it was blown out 28-0 by the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1, the team’s defense did improve. But perhaps more noteworthy were the continued struggles of the Seahawks offense, which has scored just one touchdown in two games.
It may not be the prettiest win for the Rams, but they appear to have their division rivals figured out, having beaten them in four of their past five games.
