Rams Defeat Seahawks, Wilson Leaves Injured

Jonathan Grant | October 8th, 2021

The Seattle Seahawks did not have a good night at the office. Not by a long shot on Thursday Night Football as they fell 26-17 to the now 4-1 Los Angeles Rams. As if the loss wasn’t bad enough, a loss that dropped them down to 2-3, they also saw quarterback Russell Wilson go down with an injury to his finger. We don’t know the extent of it yet or how long he will be out, but it doesn’t look good. And his absence did play a role late as Geno Smith threw an interception with just over two minutes left on a drive that very well could have changed the outcome of the game.

While Wilson left partially through the third quarter, Matthew Stafford, the Rams QB, was overcoming some finger woes of his own to end up going 25-37 for 365 yards and a touchdown. He found wide receiver Robert Woods 12 times for 150 yards in the match-up while also handing off to Darrell Henderson 17 times (for 82 yards and a TD). DK Metcalf caught five passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns for the Seahawks in the defeat. One of the passes came in the first from Wilson while the other came in the fourth from Smith. It’s always hard to win in Seattle, so no matter how they got it done, the Rams will just be glad that they did and could put a little pressure on the so-far-unbeaten Arizona Cardinals in the process.
