They initially sent their punting unit onto the field, but after the Seahawks called a timeout, the Rams changed their minds, went for it on fourth down, and picked up the game-clinching conversion on a quarterback sneak.So does that mean Seahawks coach Pete Carroll erred by calling the timeout? https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Marshall-Faulk-Jersey Should Carroll not have given Rams coach Sean McVay more time to think over the fourth down?Not according to Carroll, who said he actually told the officials he wanted the timeout before they brought the chains out prior to the Rams’ fourth down. Carroll said that after the officials measured, he confirmed to them that he wanted the timeout, and he stands by that decision.“The clock would have been running and we would have used the timeout Kurt Warner Color Rush Jersey , but because of the stoppage [for the chains] there, we get the timeout back, so we had another timeout,” Carroll said. “What would have happened there is they were going to wind the clock and I think there was 33 seconds on the [play] clock at 1:39. It would have taken us down to a minute, so it was worth using the timeout.”When a reporter asked a follow-up about Carroll’s timeout usage, he seemed to get a little testy about it.“I’m not quite sure why you’re asking that. I’m just trying to keep as much time on the clock as possible,” Carroll said.Unfortunately for Carroll, McVay used the timeout to make a smart call to go for it on fourth down Jared Goff Color Rush Jersey , and that ended any hope Carroll’s team had of a comeback win. The Los Angeles Rams head home after a tough divisional battle versus their rivals in the Seattle Seahawks.Closing the game out on a quarterback sneak, the Rams remain unbeaten at 5-0 and continued to widen their division lead.Stock DownCB Marcus PetersPeters was absolutely horrible in this game, there’s no two-ways about it. Peters was toasted multiple times for touchdowns as he proved his eyes continue to be the aspect of his game with which you have to live and die with. One can argue that he might have been hurt or not 100% fit to play, but the issues last night did not revolve around his feet – they revolved around his eyes. For a team who invested a ton into the secondary, they need to do a MUCH better job moving forward (not just Peters).Pass rushThe Rams’ pass rush had two sacks in the game (Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh) but were invisible for majority of the game. Russell Wilson was given all the time in the world which is surprising because the Seahawks are not known to have a good offensive line. The edge rushers in Samson Ebukam, Matt Longacre, and John Franklin-Myers need to find a way to be much more productive. Not only that, but more is needed from maybe the leagues best interior trio too.Run defenseThe Seahawks had 190 rushing yards with three players (Chris Carson Orlando Pace Color Rush Jersey , Mike Davis, Tyler Lockett) all averaging over 5.6 yards per carry. Not good. Now, Carson is a tough runner with an awesome combination of speed and power, but the Rams simply need to do better. They need to be more aggressive and physical at the point of attack up front, and the linebackers need to wrap up better.Stock UpWR Cooper KuppPrior to getting knocked out of the game by way of a concussion, Cooper Kupp simply looked unstoppable. In the first half he managed to register six receptions for 90 yards and one touchdown. Every week a different wide receiver is capable of stepping up and shouldering the work load, and this week was Kupp’s. The dependability that QB Jared Goff and Kupp have developed within each other is quite evident.K Cairo SantosSome may not think Santos belongs here, but I think he does. His missed extra point was awful and put the Rams in a really bad position for sure Deacon Jones Color Rush Jersey , but his ability to bounce back from that awful miss and kick the field goal that eventually won the game was impressive. Santos looked comfortable in general (outside of kickoff duties).WR Robert WoodsWoods was tremendous again yesterday with five receptions on seven targets for 92 yards. Woods’ route running ability was putting the Seahawks’ defensive backs in a daze, and he racked up a ton of yards-after-catch as Goff delivered some accurate balls that allowed Woods to never break stride. Rob was huge in continuing the offensive production in the second half when his running mates were knocked out by injuries.ILB Mark BarronIn his return, Barron looked awesome. There were a few instances where his physicality and speed were evident. Barron ensures that ball carriers near/around him are going to feel his impact. Having the speed and coverage ability that Barron does allows the Rams to use Cory Littleton in a manner closer to what Alec Ogletree did for the defense last year.WR’s Josh Reynolds and KhaDarel HodgeGood on these young guys for stepping in and ensuring the offense didn’t come to a halt after two awful injuries. Reynolds made his impact right away with two receptions for 39 yards and a 10-yard end around. Meanwhile, the practice squad call up from a few weeks prior in Hodge also got on the board with a reception for 14 yards (was a great catch) and showed his ability to block.The Rams remain unbeaten at 5-0 and look to continue the streak with a struggling Denver Broncos team in week six.
