Rams vs. Seahawks live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Thursday Night Football’ game

The Rams will look to bounce back against the Seahawks after losing 37-20 to the Cardinals last week. The matchup is expected to be a battle between high-powered offenses led by quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Russell Wilson and how well the defense can break up the passing game.  

Stafford totals 92 completions for 1,222 yards and 11 touchdowns through four games this season. Although he threw only one touchdown during the Rams’ loss to the Cardinals, the 33-year-old quarterback has been on fire with with receiver Cooper Kupp. He totals 30 catches for 431 yards and five touchdowns this season.  

Despite Rams coach Sean McVay depending on the passing game, they could force an effective drive on the ground. Running back Darrell Henderson Jr. leads with 212 rushing yards and two touchdowns. If the Rams utilize the running game, they could gain an advantage over the Seahawks defense who allows the league-worst total of 608 rushing yards. 

Coming off a 28-21 win against the 49ers, Wilson is one of two quarterbacks in the league that has yet to total an interception after starting for multiple games. He will likely continue to target his top two receivers, Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, who both total 20 catches and three touchdowns. Lockett totals 333 yards and and averages 16.6 per game while Metcalf totals 285 yards and averages 14.3.
