Despite winning in the final seconds of their week 8 game against the Rams, the Seahawk’s were far from extraordinary. They allowed 200 rushing yards to one of the worst running teams in the NFL, and managed to accumulate only 91 yards passing. The only reason the Seahawks were able to come away with a victory, was because they didn’t turn the ball over a single time.
The Seahawks Offensive Line played terribly, allowing a total of seven sacks and failing to generate any sort of rushing offense, generating only 44 yards on the ground. The Hawks failure to rush was matched by their inability to stop the rush. Rams RB Zac Stacy had 134 yards rushing on the night. Fortunately the Hawks did not allow the Rams their first rushing touchdown on the year and capitalized on turnovers.
Their successful turnover margin and their final goal line stand, were the only positives of last Monday Night’s game. Even though our play was good enough to beat the Rams, we need our O-line to play better moving forward. Next Week against the Buccaneers at home, the Hawks will attempt to get back on track against a very weak opponent.
