RM1_0226

The Seahawks won a wild NFC West showdown on Thursday night, beating the Los Angeles Rams 30-29 at CenturyLink Field. In addition to the final score, here are ten numbers that told the story of Thursday night's game:

151.8

Russell Wilson’s passer rating, the second highest of his career, improving his season mark to a league-leading 126.3. With four more touchdown passes, Wilson, who also leads the league in completion percentage, now has 12 touchdowns this season without an interception. According to NFL Research, he’s the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era to have 1,400 yards and 12 touchdown without an interception in his first five games of a season.

1

Hand that Tedric Thompson somehow got under the football just before it hit the ground, the first step in a spectacular fourth-quarter interception that played a huge role in Seattle’s win.

81

Will Dissly’s team-leading receiving total Thursday. In nine career NFL games, Will Dissly now has more catches (31), receiving yards (418), and touchdowns (6) than he did in two years of playing tight end at the University of Washington.

65

Offensive snaps, out of 74 total, played by Jamarco Jones at right guard after he took over for an injured D.J. Fluker. That’s particularly notable because Jones, a tackle throughout his football career, had never before seen game action at guard at any level.

22

Career touchdown catches for Tyler Lockett after Thursday’s absurd 13-yard grab, moving him into seventh place on the Seahawks’ all-time list ahead of Sam McCullum.

2

Turnovers caused by as many games by Jadeveon Clowney, who forced and recovered a fumble on Thursday—though Bobby Wagner will likely argue that he had a hand it he forced fumble as well.

3 for 11

The Rams’ conversion rate on third down. While Los Angeles was able to move the ball and put up 29 points, the Seahawks’ ability to get off the field on third downs proved big.

.833

Seattle’s winning percentage in prime-time games since 2010. The Seahawks are also 4-0 in Action Green, for what it’s worth.

47

Percent of the defensive snaps played by nickel corner Jamar Taylor, the most nickel defense the Seahawks have played this season. Taylor played well in that expanded role, recording two passes defense.

118

Rushing yards for Chris Carson on 27 carries, his second straight 100-yard game. This is the third time in his career that Carson has had consecutive 100-yard games, accomplishing that feat twice last season.
