Twitter reacts to the Seahawks loss to the Rams

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

On Sunday the Seattle Seahawks took on the Los Angeles Rams. Each team entered the Week 10 game having lost in Week 9, and neither wanted to be the team to leave this game with a two game losing streak.

For the Rams, a win would all but secure the NFC West division, while the Seahawks wanted a win to keep the door cracked not just on seeding for a Wild Card playoff spot, but for the very slim possibility of overtaking the Rams in the West over the final two months of the season.

Unfortunately for Seattle fans, it wasn’t meant to be, as there were simply too many key pieces missing for the Hawks, as Chris Carson and D.J. Fluker were both out with injury, and the defense simply could not stop the Rams high powered offense. Rookie running back Rashaad Penny looked great for the first time this season, and Tyler Lockett caught his seventh touchdown pass of the season, but it was not enough to overcome the Rams.

Here’s how Twitter reacted.

Late in the game things got heated between Aaron Donald and Justin Britt, and that led to some extracurricular activity not just between plays, but after the game as well.

The disagreement between Donald and the Hawks linemen likely had to do with the fact that Donald did what he wanted for much of the game, finishing with 2.5 sacks and 5 hits on Russell Wilson.

Now, while Donald is obviously an immense talent on the field, I can’t imagine that the league will look kindly on either his retaliation against Justin Britt late in the game, or on his post-game antics. I’d expect a fine at the very least, and a suspension seems warranted, though I’m not sure how much a suspension would actually do since over the last seven weeks of the season the Rams opponents for the remainder of the season have a combined record of 24-29. That 24-29 record is not bad, but the next game is against the 9-1 Kansas City Chiefs, so after next week the Rams’ final five games will be against teams that are a combined 15-28.

In any case, it obviously wasn’t all bad, so here are some positives takeaways from the game.

And another angle.
