The Seahawks have suffered a blow as their top running back, Kenneth Walker, is doubtful to return to the game after sustaining an oblique injury. He left the contest midway through the first half after taking four carries for 18 yards and having one reception for -2 yards. With Walker out of action, Seattle’s Zach Charbonnet is expected to take on the bulk of the carries for the rest of the game. So far, he has started with five carries for 22 yards.
The Seahawks took an early lead over the Rams when they went up 7-0. However, the Rams had an opportunity to tie things up with a touchdown in their latest attempt at getting inside the five-yard line. Despite trying four times, they were unable to make it into the end zone. In particular, Matthew Stafford’s fourth-and-goal pass failed to connect with Tutu Atwell in a critical moment that could have changed the course of the matchup.
