It was another tough win for the Rams, but they were able to pull it off. They are definitely grateful for another win. The Rams beat the Seahawks 19-13 mainly due to the help of kicker Greg Zuerlein. We already learned what a great kicker he is earlier in the season. Below is a list of five things we learned from this game.
1. The Rams Can Win At Home
The Rams have won both of their home games this season. They won both of their preseason home games as well.
The Rams lost both of their away games during the regular season and the preseason as well. There's just something about being on the road that makes it difficult for the Rams to win. The Rams had a win at home and lose on the road pattern back in 2010 and it looks like the pattern is being repeated again. It's clear that the Rams have a much easier time playing at home.
2. Chris Givens Is The Deep Threat
Chris Givens had a 52-yard catch during the game. Even most of the veteran wide receivers on the team can't make a 52-yard catch. He was mostly used as a deep threat during the game and was targeted three times. The Rams are most likely going to keep using him as a deep threat.
3. Sam Bradford Must Get Faster
Sam still needs to get rid of the ball quicker. Bradford continues to have a tendency to hold on to the ball too long. Sam needs to be faster with his reaction time when he gets the ball in his hands. He needs to work on his pocket presence as well. It has been hard for Bradford since he has dealt with a new coach every year, but the good news is that it looks like Fisher is going to stick around for a while.
4. Russel Wilson Needs Lanes
The Seahawks quarterback Russel Wilson slows down considerably when the opponent takes away his passing lanes. As a young QB, he doesn't have the patience quite yet. He's very quick to run, or try to force something to happen. The Rams were able to intercept him three times during the game which isn't typically easy to do.
5. Mike Martz Can't Broadcast
Mike Martz was able to get the Rams a super bowl victory, but has no business in the broadcast booth. Martz sounded intoxicated during the game. Martz even messed up Bradford's name at the beginning of the game. According to some personal reports, his broadcast was even lousy. Not everyone is cut out to have a career in broadcasting.
