Phew! For a brief moment there it looked as if the Seattle Seahawks were about to drop an embarrassing road game to a severely undermanned Los Angeles Rams side. Geno Smith had other ideas, as he punctuated a terrific game with a clutch touchdown drive in the final two minutes of regulation. DK Metcalf was the recipient of the go-ahead score, beating Jalen Ramsey in coverage in the type of ending even Hollywood would scoff at.
