Sam’s Film Room: How Earl Thomas saved another touchdown against the Rams

Edit: If the video above does not play, please click “Watch on YouTube” or follow this link.

The Seattle Seahawks walked away with a very close victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The Rams were down by six points late and drove all the way down the field to have multiple end zone scoring attempts, but they all fell incomplete. Seattle ended up winning, bringing their record to 3-2 with a share of the division lead and drawing first blood against the only team in the NFC West likely to challenge them this season.

However it was much earlier in the game that perhaps the biggest play happened. In the first quarter, Earl Thomas found Todd Gurley as he took a pitch to the edge and pretty much had the touchdown in reach if it weren’t for Earl’s range and precision.

In this video, I explain the ruling for everyone that wasn’t able to watch the game as well as breakdown the play call and how the Rams were able to get Gurley to the endzone in the first place.
