It'd been more than 800 days since the Seattle Seahawks were held without an offensive touchdown -- 819, to be exact. The streak is now over.
The Seahawks seemed off-kilter from the jump, with pass-catchers dropping balls, backs not breaking tackles and blockers picking up penalties.
Usually, the self-inflicted wounds from Seattle are offset by Wilson's wizardry. Not against this Rams squad. Sunday's five sacks mean Wilson has now been sacked 61 times by the Rams in his career -- second-most a QB has been sacked by a single opponent in his first eight seasons since the 1970 NFL merger, per NFL Research.
Seattle getting in a hole early wiped out its preferred run-heavy offensive game plan.
The Seahawks' pass-attack has failed to get Lockett involved since he suffered an injury in Week 10. The past three games, Wilson's favorite target has put up just 81 total yards on five receptions, including a Week 13 goose egg.
"I just think we've been running the ball more (lately), so we haven't been as focused as much on just trying to like 'Air Raid' the ball like we kind of did earlier on (in the season)," Lockett said.
He added: "We haven't been running plays to be explosive. We've been running plays to run the ball and control the clock. We haven't really been trying to go over the top like we normally have, because teams have been game-planning that."
Perhaps after they get done flushing Sunday's outcome, Seattle will revisit its strategy and try to get Lockett going earlier in its three remaining games.
