Los Angeles def. Seattle (26-17) With 2nd-Half Comeback on Thursday Night Football

More mid-week NFL action pitted two NFC West rivals last night on Thursday Night Football, and the Rams bounced back. Following a 37-20 loss to the Cardinals last week, Los Angeles scored 23 points in the second half to defeat the Seahawks (26-17). Seahawks QB Russell Wilson left the game in the second half with a dislocated finger, but Matthew Stafford and the Rams’ run game dominated late. The game was still within reach prior to the two-minute mark before Seattle’s backup QB Geno Smith threw a game-sealing interception.
