3. Seattle Seahawks

This was not an ideal way to begin the season for the Seattle Seahawks. They didn't just start the year 0-1, but did so in a debilitating fashion. The Rams dominated Seattle. The Seahawks looked lost, out of sync and played with essentially zero rhythm, never really able to gain any momentum throughout the afternoon.

In just about every important category, the Seahawks failed. While the Rams had major success moving the sticks, Seattle went just 2-for-9 on third downs. They ran 46 plays to the Rams' 78, and lost the time of possession battle in a monumental way.

Seattle only got worse as the game went on, too, with the big storyline being that their offense posted just 12 total yards in the second half. The Seahawks didn't even turn the ball over. In fact, neither team did. Seattle simply played poorly in every sense of the game and paid for it.

The frustration was evident with Seattle, too, as they saw a couple of players get flagged for things like taunting and unnecessary roughness. They'll look to bounce back next week against a Detroit Lions team that just knocked off the Super Bowl champions in Week 1.
