10 Numbers From Seattle's 9-3 Loss To The Los Angeles Rams

A package of 10 key numbers from Seattle's 9-3 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.

The Seahawks lost their first road matchup of the 2016 season, 9-3, in Los Angeles on Sunday. To recap notable player performances, team milestones and (of course) how the game played out, we compiled 10 numbers from the Week 2 contest: 


With the loss, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll dropped to a 7-7 record against the Rams for his career. He will look to move back over .500 when Los Angeles visits CenturyLink Field on Thursday Night Football in December. 


Even in defeat, the Seahawks defense still registered three sacks and forced the Rams to put their only points on the board via field goals. Through Monday morning, Seattle's rush has eight sacks on the season, which ties Denver for second-most in the NFL.


Linebacker K.J. Wright led the Seahawks with nine combined tackles, extending his streak of games with six or more (including the playoffs) to 12.


One of the reasons the Seahawks struggled to develop much on offense against the Rams was because of the field possession they were consistently dealt. The Seahawks offense on average started at the 17-yardline against the Rams, with all 10 of their drives starting at the 25 or below. In comparison, the Rams averaged to start their drives near the 24.


Entering the weekend, Russell Wilson looked to throw a touchdown pass in his 18th consecutive game. That streak came to an end against the Rams, as Wilson finished 22 of 35 and passed for 254 yards with no touchdowns. This marked the 10th time in Wilson's career (including the playoffs) he didn't throw a touchdown in a game.


The Seahawks have forced opponents to go 6-of-26 on third down through two weeks, equaling a conversion percentage of 23 percent. Only the Eagles (20) currently have a rate lower than that.


The Seahawks defense has not allowed a 100-yard rusher in 24-straight games.


The 53-yard bomb Tyler Lockett caught against the Rams was the longest reception of his NFL career, surpassing the 49-yard pass he hauled in against the Ravens last season.


Tight end Jimmy Graham saw an uptick in playing time Week 2, playing 55 offensive snaps after logging 17 against the Dolphins in the season opener. Graham caught two of his three targets for 26 yards.


Cornerback DeShawn Shead, who has been one of the Seahawks’ best stories, played all 62 defensive snaps against the Rams, marking the second week in a row he's played 100 percent of the snaps for the unit (115/115).
