Fair enough. And the Seahawks - who don't play against until a trip to play the New York Giants on October 22 - have some time off to celebrate.
Many saw this game as the changing of the guard in the division. Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy combined for 39 yards, but the biggest factor in this game was the 5 turnovers that Seattle had caused.
Johnson said he felt "real comfortable" in his first start, and his only major lament after the game was that he failed to score a touchdown on his interception and was chased down by Wilson. Another statement about the guy's will to win.
The biggest groans came at the end, after the Rams drove 55 yards in 49 seconds and had the ball at the Seattle 20 with a chance to win. It was by far Seattle's best effort as it finally established a running game to complement Russell Wilson's pinpoint passing.
"I think it was probably one of those plays that he didn't expect", McVay said, "and I'd have to talk to Sammy about that".
Goff, with the ball on the Seattle 15, was intercepted by Sheldon Richardson on a tipped pass as Los Angeles was turned away again.

In footage shared on social media, police officers could be seen pinning a man on the ground in the aftermath of the incident. The Metropolitan Police said the man had been arrested at the scene and initially received hospital treatment.
A week after he kicked a team-record seven field goals against Dallas, Zuerlein kicked one against the Seahawks before missing wide right on a 36-yard attempt that would have put the Rams ahead in the third quarter.
That would be it for and Rams' action on the scoreboard. Graham came down with a jump ball from Russell Wilson for a 4-yard touchdown before halftime. But considering that online sportsbooks aren't even favoring them this Sunday, it's clear that the Seahawks could actually lose the West in 2017. No touchdowns thrown and two picks for the former number one selection was not the kind of Sunday that he was looking for.
The Rams meanwhile have Todd Gurley going well through the first month of the season, and he has rushed for 362 yards on 86 carries for an average gain of 4.2 yards per carry.
One of the more freaky statistics from the Week 5 game is the fact that the Los Angeles Rams had over 130 more yards of total offense. They kept the league's top-scoring offense pointless for the final 37 minutes, rewriting the division's narrative in the process. The last time he played at the Rams, he had a sprained ankle and moved "like a bag of bricks", he said this past week. The Seahawks now sit on -225 with the Rams next in line at +350. Late in the second quarter, the Seahawks scored, which was 7-10.
San Francisco would answer. This game will likely be won in the trenches, so it will be up to the lines on both sides of the ball to set the tone early and win their matchups. Two plays later, Goff threw a 20-yard pass to Robert Woods. The 49ers would have to punt, and this time Brissett and the Colts cashed in, getting the game-winner from Vinatieri.
Scoring first will be key for the Rams because they can't afford to get behind. They will be tested after losing leading rusher Chris Carson to a broken leg in the win. Goff has gotten a great deal of love for his play this year, and that love seems to be more relative to his horrendous play in 2016 than what he's done in a vacuum in "17. The Rams" defense forced Seattle to a three-and-out, but four plays later Goff coughed up the ball when he took a sack from Frank Clark. The play was originally ruled a touchdown, but then reversed upon video review and was ruled a touchback.
