Cooper Kupp continued his scintillating campaign with nine catches for 136 yards and two touchdowns while Matthew Stafford was an efficient 21-for-29 for 244 yards. Seattle couldn’t get much going on offense, as Russell Wilson topped out at 156 passing yards.

The Rams will head to the midwest to play the Minnesota Vikings next Sunday while the Seahawks will return home for a date with the Chicago Bears.

Wide Receiver/Tight End

Kupp was targeted 13 times and finished with 4.25 yards per route run. Odell Beckham Jr. was only targeted three times on his 31 routes, leading to just one catch for seven yards.

Offensive Line

Andrew Whitworth allowed just one pressure, although it did turn into a sack; however, every other Rams offensive lineman allowed multiple pressures. Bobby Evans allowed four pressures and two sacks while Austin Corbett also allowed four pressures but did not give up a sack.

All five starters allowed at least two pressures, but Damien Lewis, Jake Curhan and Gabe Jackson each allowed three. Duane Brown and Lewis each gave up a sack.
