Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Monday, Nov. 16 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Rams 23, Seahawks 16
The Seahawks' trip to Los Angeles didn't go as planned, as they fell into a three-way tie for the NFC West lead with the Rams and Cardinals at 6-3. Russell Wilson and the offense had their lowest scoring output of the season, but the defense allowed the fewest points it has all year. Jamal Adams had two sacks, including a strip sack that was recovered by D.J. Reed. Luckily for the Seahawks, they have a quick turnaround and play the aforementioned Cardinals at CenturyLink Field on Thursday.

Damien Lewis Named To PFF's Midseason All-Rookie Team
Selected in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Seahawks rookie Damien Lewis has made an immediate impact. He won the starting right guard job and hasn't looked back, only allowing one sack thus far in his nine starts, per Pro Football Focus.
Late last week, PFF's Michael Renner chose one player from each position to comprise his 2020 Midseason All-Rookie Team. Lewis, who has played for the national champion LSU Tigers last season, was selected as the best rookie at his position.
The analysis was written prior to the Rams game, but here's what Renner had to say about his pick:
"Lewis is fresh off one of the highest-graded performances we've seen from a guard all season. He didn't allow a single pressure for the first time all season this past week against Buffalo and continued to do excellent work in the run game. His 87.0 run-blocking grade ranks fifth among all starting guards in the league."
