Jared Goff and the Rams (3-2) appeared on the brink of a success after driving to field-goal range at the last 90 minutes.

Wilson was 17-of-23 for 268 and four touchdowns. He had been at his very best, when he was forced to improvise or whether it was his throws from the pocket. It was one stunning play after another from the celebrity of Seattle, continuing his very best beginning to a year.
Seattle appeared to wrap up while lying on the turf with 2:08 left the victory when Tedric Thompson created a juggling interception of Goff pass. However, the Rams took possession with 1:38 left at their own seven-yard line and forced Seattle to punt.
To Seattles 30, Goff had the Rams in only seven plays after a strike to Gerald Everett. The Rams stalled and also a pass to Everett on third-down set up Zuerleins attempt. The snap was great, however, the kick remained just to the right.

Wilson was that the star. He had touchdown passes of 13 yards to Tyler Lockett and 40 metres . He threw a 10-yarder to David Moore in the third quarter following the Rams had taken a lead and he had a final answer.
Wilson directed Seattle 60 yards in 12 plays, aided during the drive by a telephone on Clay Matthews. Seattle faced down in the five-yard line, after stalling inside the 10. Wilson scrambled all night, like that he had, buying enough time to find Carson open at the corner of the end zone. The running back fearful nearly all of the 69,000 in attendance by restarting the pass before gaining attention.
Carson finished with 118 yards rushing on 27 carries. The touchdown was his only reception.
Todd Gurley has been a section of the Rams offense early and finished with 51 yards on 15 carries, however the conduct game vanished during the majority of the next half.
Gurley also fumbled for the first time since Week 3 of last season. Jadeveon Clowney, who recovered the ball riped out the fumble. It was the first fumble in 338 touches that are offensive of Gurley.
Brandin Cooks had one reception but it turned out to be a big one. Cooks pulled on third-and-8 from the Rams 27-yard line in the fourth quarter in a catch from Goff because he was being covered.
Cooks was being appraised for a concussion and did not return. Carroll left a obstacle believing there ought to have been offensive pass interference but the call on the field stood. The catch led that gave the Rams a 29-24 lead.
