Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks Recap JAN 9TH 2021
Chris Carson rushed for 118 yards and caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson with 2:28 remaining as the Seattle Seahawks defeated the visiting Los Angeles Rams 30-29 Thursday night in a matchup of NFC West rivals.
The Rams (3-2) moved from their own 7-yard line into field-goal range in the final two minutes before Greg Zuerlein, who made his first three attempts, missed wide right on a 44-yarder with 15 seconds left.
Wilson was 17-of-23 passing for 268 yards and four touchdowns as the Seahawks (4-1) improved to 9-1 in Thursday night games under coach Pete Carroll. It was Wilson's 29th winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime since he entered the NFL in 2012, the most in the league over that span.
Los Angeles' Jared Goff threw for 395 yards and a touchdown and Todd Gurley rushed for two touchdowns but the Rams suffered their second consecutive defeat. Goff was 29 of 49.
The Rams took a 26-21 lead into the fourth quarter, after Gurley scored on 1- and 8-yard runs in the third quarter.
After the teams exchanged field goals early in the fourth, Wilson drove the Seahawks 75 yards in 12 plays for the go-ahead touchdown.
The Seahawks held a 14-13 halftime advantage.
The Rams took a 6-0 lead on a pair of field goals by Zuerlein, from 47 and 32 yards.
The Seahawks responded with a 13-yard touchdown pass from Wilson to Tyler Lockett in the back left corner of the end zone with 49 seconds left in the first quarter to make it 7-6.

Cam Akers rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown and Darious Williams returned an interception for a score as the sixth-seeded Los Angeles Rams upset the host Seattle Seahawks 30-20 Saturday in the opening round of the NFC playoffs.
Matt Gay kicked three field goals for the Rams and their defense allowed 278 yards of total offense against the third-seeded Seahawks, who had won their previous 10 postseason games at Lumen Field. Seattle's last home playoff loss was to the St. Louis Rams in 2004.
Jared Goff, who suffered a fractured right thumb at Seattle two weeks ago that required surgery, came off the bench to guide the Rams, throwing a 15-yard touchdown pass to Robert Woods with 4:46 remaining to help clinch the victory. Goff was 9 of 19 for 155 yards.
Seattle's Russell Wilson was 11 of 27 for 174 yards and two touchdowns, both to DK Metcalf. Wilson was sacked five times, twice each by Aaron Donald and Leonard Floyd, and the Seahawks converted just 2 of 14 third-down attempts.
Metcalf's 12-yard touchdown reception with 2:28 pulled the Seahawks within 10 points, but Woods recovered the ensuing onside kick.
There were three touchdowns scored in a span of 4:48 late in the first half, giving Los Angeles a 20-10 lead.
With the Rams up 6-3, Williams jumped a Wilson screen pass intended for Metcalf, picked it off and went 42 yards for a touchdown with 6:46 left in the half.
Wilson scrambled to his left and lofted a ball over the secondary, finding Metcalf for a 51-yard touchdown with 3:43 remaining.
On third-and-9 from the Rams' own 26-yard line, Goff hit Akers with a screen pass. The rookie took it 44 yards down the right sideline, setting up his own 5-yard touchdown run with 1:57 to go in the half. Akers, a second-round pick from Florida State, missed the Week 16 matchup between teams with an ankle injury as the Seahawks won 20-9, clinching the NFC West title.
John Wolford started at quarterback for the Rams and led them into field-goal range on their second possession before suffering a neck injury while being tackled by Seattle's Jamal Adams. Wolford didn't return and was taken to the hospital.
The Seahawks' Chris Carson rushed for 77 yards and Jason Myers kicked 50- and 52-yard field goals.
