close we are in this room,” said guard Rodger Saffol

SEATTLE (AP) — Whatever the reason the Los Angeles Rams seem to have solved winning in one of the most difficult venues in the NFL.Each of the past two times the Rams have traveled to the Northwest they’ve come out of Seattle with a victory. They’ve won three of their past four trips to face the Seahawks. One of those was the most lopsided loss handed to the Seahawks during Pete Carroll’s tenure.So even though the Rams are coming off a surprising home loss to Tampa Bay last week Darrell Henderson Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , they still have that history they’ll be bringing with them when they visit Seattle on Thursday night for a key NFC West matchup.Article continues below ...“I think we are all in the same position of, we’re just excited about another opportunity,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. “We respect the Seahawks a lot, but I know for me personally, I think a lot of the players would agree, the Thursday week is stressful in terms of the amount of work that is condensed in a short week, but it provides a great chance for us to respond from a disappointing Sunday.”The Seahawks (3-1) know getting back to the top of the NFC West means reversing the trend of the past few years. Los Angeles (3-1) has won six of the past eight overall against Seattle and a win on Thursday would make the Rams the first division opponent to win three straight games in Seattle since the Denver Broncos from 1996-98.“What happened last year, what happened the previous years before doesn’t really matter,” Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “If you don’t bring your game this year, then all of that is erased.”Even though he tied an NFL record with 45 completions and threw for 517 yards last week, there is worry about how Jared Goff has played. He’s thrown six interceptions in four games. His passer rating is 82.9. Couple Goff’s inconsistency with concerns about Todd Gurley’s usage _ he had a career-low five carries against the Bucs _ and issues on the offensive line and the Rams offense has yet to click.Meanwhile Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , Seattle has no worries about its quarterback. Russell Wilson is off to one of the best starts of his career. He’s thrown eight touchdowns and no interceptions. He leads the NFC and is second in the league in passer rating. Seattle’s offense has sputtered at times but it’s not because of Wilson.“I think I’m playing good. I think there’s some more things out there that you can always try and do,” Wilson said.Here’s what else to watch for as the Seahawks and Rams meet for the 43rd time overall.ON THE LINEThe Rams’ reconfigured offensive line hasn’t been overly impressive after replacing two veteran starters with unheralded second-year pros Brian Allen and Joe Noteboom, but veteran tackles Andrew Whitworth and Rob Havenstein both hurt Los Angeles last week with penalties. The line was a durable strength of McVay’s first two offenses, and its sudden shakiness is a clear factor in the Rams’ slow offensive start. Look for Jadeveon Clowney, Rasheem Green, Quinton Jefferson and the Seahawks’ other pass rushers to test that line.LEAN ON THE RUNSeattle led the NFL in rushing last season and two of its best games came against the Rams. Seattle rushed for a season-high 273 yards in the game in Los Angeles. The Seahawks haven’t matched their league-best rushing attack from a year ago, but Chris Carson rushed for 104 yards last week and Rashaad Penny should return after missing the past two games with a hamstring injury. Penny had the only 100-yard game of his career last year against the Rams.TAKE YOUR PICKAlthough the Rams gave up 385 yards through the air by Jameis Winston last week, their pass defense has been largely solid with the addition of safety Eric Weddle to three holdovers from the Super Bowl team. Marcus Peters returned the Rams’ fourth interception of the season for a late touchdown against Tampa Bay. Los Angeles’ defensive backs got no help from a struggling pass rush last week, but Clay Matthews and Dante Fowler hope to increase their quarterback pressure to take the load off Aaron Donald, who has been double-teamed on roughly 85 percent of the opponents’ snaps.COMEBACK COOPRams receiver Cooper Kupp leads the NFC with 388 yards receiving as he returns to the state where the Yakima native was born and raised and attended college at Eastern Washington. In the Rams’ previous meeting with the Seahawks, Kupp badly injured his knee in the fourth quarter Darrell Henderson black jersey , sidelining him for the rest of the season in Los Angeles’ Super Bowl run. He has returned better than ever, with his connection with Goff somehow even stronger.RING OF HONORSeattle will induct former owner Paul Allen into the team’s “Ring of Honor” before kickoff on Thursday. Allen purchased the Seahawks in 1997 and helped keep the team in Seattle after former owner Ken Behring attempted to move them to Southern California. He owned the franchise until his death last year from non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Allen will become the 12th person honored by the team.“He gave us a chance,” Wilson said. “He gave us an opportunity just to have this amazing facility. To have the great coaches that we have. To have the culture that we have. The opportunities that we have.” THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) When the Los Angeles Rams‘ team bus rolled into their suburban training complex after a boisterous flight from New Orleans, the players and coaches were greeted by rowdy fans welcoming home the new NFC champions in the middle of the night.The Rams and their fans lost some sleep Sunday night – but not about that missed pass interference on Nickell Robey-Coleman that could have altered the outcome of Los Angeles’ 26-23 overtime victory in the NFC championship game.“I’m not going to sit here and say there clearly wasn’t a little bit of contact before that ball actually arrived,” Rams coach Sean McVay said Monday. “But whether he catches it or not, there’s a lot of things that go into that. … I feel bad for when it occurred in the framework of the game, but I thought (Saints coach) Sean (Payton) said it best: There’s a lot of other opportunities, and there’s a lot of things that do dictate and determine the outcome of the game.”And after watching the tape of their remarkable win, the Rams had a few questions of their own for the officiating crew.Specifically, the Rams couldn’t understand how the refs didn’t call Saints linebacker A.J. Klein’s apparent grab of Jared Goff‘s facemask on the Rams’ previous drive. A penalty would have given a first down to the Rams at the New Orleans 1 Darrell Henderson Jersey Mens , putting them in prime position to take a 24-20 lead with a touchdown with 5:03 to play.“When you slow it down, clearly you can see some of the things that took place. If you want to do that on every single play, though, there’s a lot of instances. You want to slow some things down with a facemask on Goff, some different things,” McVay said. “What we try to do a good job of understanding is that it is an imperfect game.”The Rams’ latest victory wasn’t perfect, but it was historic. This franchise is still deep in the years-long process of rebuilding its once-huge fan base in Southern California after 21 years away in St. Louis.A trip to the Super Bowl in just their third season back home is an awfully good way to send that process into warp speed.The Rams are headed to their first Super Bowl in 17 years. The Rams had only two winning seasons in between those Super Bowl runs, but McVay’s team has swiftly reversed years of failure and put the Rams on the brink of Los Angeles’ first NFL championship since the 1983 season, when the Raiders won it all.“We’ve been through a lot, and for us to go out there and grind through all this adversity just shows you how close we are in this room,” said guard Rodger Saffold Darrell Henderson Jersey Cheap , the longest-tenured Rams player in his ninth season. “The fans were excited for us to come back, and now, three years later, we’re on the biggest stage in sports. The city is electric for us.”Aside from the late-game theatrics and twists, the Rams’ victory was even more surprising because of the relatively small role played by their biggest offensive star.Todd Gurley touched the ball only five times, while backup C.J. Anderson led the Rams’ meager rushing game with 44 yards. Gurley was on the field for 32 snaps to Anderson’s 37, but last season’s Offensive Player of the Year didn’t look like himself.McVay on Monday reiterated his claim that Gurley is fully healthy even though the running back missed the Rams’ final two regular-season games with an injured knee.“He’s feeling good, and he sure looked pretty healthy on that touchdown run where he ran through guys and demonstrated some explosion,” McVay said. “More than anything, I’ve got to get him more opportunities.”
