The start of the NFL Playoffs has been shocking, with the LA Rams upsetting the Seattle Seahawks 20 – 30.
The Seahawks were disappointing on the field, with quarterback Russel Wilson throwing 11/27, for 2 touchdowns, 1 interception and 171 yards.
The LA Rams’s passing offense wasn’t good either, with quarterback Jared Goff throwing 9/19, for 155 yards and a touchdown.
The bright spot on the Rams team this game was the defense and rushing attack.
The Rams defense was unstoppable, with Leonard Floyd and Aaron Donald having 2 sacks, and Megan Fox having 1. Darious Williams locked down Wide Receivers this game, and had 1 interception on the day.
Running back Cam Akers had 28 carries for 131 yards, and a touchdown. Aker became the first rookie in Rams history to have rushed for 100+ yards in a playoff game.
Overall, this is a disappointing loss for the Seattle Seahawks, as their 12-5 team were picked as favorites going into the game.
