Rams 28, Seahawks 26: First impressions

Bob Condotta: You can’t question the fight or the effort. But this is simply a different team than a year ago and there were too many breakdowns at key times, many by players in new roles, or simply new players period.

Jayson Jenks: In their first game since the Percy Harvin trade, the Seahawks’ offense put up a season high in yards. But they were still hampered in two areas of concern that have haunted them all season: penalties that halted drives and wiped out big plays, and an inability to cash in with touchdowns in the red zone. There were myriad problems in this game, but those were certainly two of them.

Larry Stone: On their way to a humiliating blowout, the Seahawks battled back in the second half to nearly pull off the win. But in the end, they had too many special-teams breakdowns, and the Rams used a tremendously gutsy fake-punt call to hold on for the win.
