The Rams clearly wanted to make a statement after last week’s embarrassing shutout loss to the 49ers.
And they’re taking it out on the Seahawks, particularly quarterback Russell Wilson.
The Seahawks just kicked a field goal to tie the game 3-3 early in the second quarter, but the game has been a hard-hitting one so far.
Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree was just flagged for hitting a sliding Wilson, and there have been a number of hard shots. Wilson doesn’t appear to be himself, but he’s out there after last week’s ankle injury, and the roughing the passer penalty set up their field goal.
You figured the Rams defense would stiffen after last week’s display, and so far they have. Whether their offense allows them to compete remains to be seen.
