That was reality Sunday for Roger Goodell and the National Football League, as Floyd Mayweather was the recipient of two game balls in Los Angeles. Seattle lost to the Rams in week 10. The Rams offense continues to excel and put points on the board while the defense continues to be inconsistent and as of yesterday, terribly undisciplined.
The Rams are 5-0 in games following a loss in the regular season in Sean McVay's two seasons as coach.
For how long however is another discussion.
The Rams improved to 9-1 with the win on Sunday. With a sweep of the Seahawks, the division is all but decided. They could have won the game. The final score was 36-31 and the Los Angeles Rams got a rebound win after losing last week. They totaled 456 yards total, with Jared Goff passing for 318 and two touchdowns, while Todd Gurley continued to be his normal self and had 120 yards rushing and 40 yards receiving.
#Rams WR Cooper Kupp suffered a knee injury today and sources say the initial concern is that it is a torn ACL.
Talib said Monday that he still hopes to return when the Rams face Detroit on December 2 in their first game back from their bye week. But on Sunday he showed what he will mean to the Seahawks going forward in the next few seasons.
Talib also praised his replacements in the secondary and had encouraging words for fellow starter Marcus Peters, who criticized himself after last week's loss to New Orleans.
It's just the second time since 1982 that the Rams have allowed at least 273 yards rushing and the seventh time since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.
"It's finishing at the right time, making the right play". And he will be teamed with Chris Carson.
Gurley scored his NFL-leading 17th touchdown in the second quarter on a 17-yard run.
Mayweather received the first one from Tyler Lockett, who handed him a ball after scoring a go-ahead touchdown against the Rams.
Lockett now has seven touchdown receptions this season.
"We made a big mistake to give up the ball and a great sack by their guy", Carroll said. He teamed up with Ndamukong Suh for a huge third-down sack at the Los Angeles 15 in the fourth quarter, forcing Seattle to kick a field goal.
