NFC West standings: Seahawks drop to 1-2 on Sunday

New, comments

The 49ers sat on the sidelines on Sunday, and were treated to a gut-wrenching loss for the Seahawks against the Titans.

The Seattle Seahawks fell to 1-2 on the season after an ugly game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. The San Francisco 49ers are, of course, firmly in last place in the division, but the NFC West didn’t look any better on Sunday.

Of course, the Seahawks were the only representatives in action, as the Arizona Cardinals will face the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

Seattle was on the losing end of a 33-27 game against the Titans. Russell Wilson had four passing touchdowns and threw for 373 yards, adding another 26 yards rushing and they still managed to lose. Richard Sherman was penalized roughly 1,400 times and, in general, the Titans made them look silly on defense.

Tennessee ran for 195 yards against the Seahawks’ strong defensive line, which is pretty spectacular. The Titans are now 2-1, while the Seahawks have a solid bounce-back opportunity against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.

The Los Angeles Rams currently lead the division with a 2-1 record after beating the 49ers and Colts, respectively. The Cardinals can tie that record and gain a game on the Seahawks — and the 49ers, though they’re in the basement with zero wins — if they make it past the underwhelming Cowboys on Monday.

Will the Rams have sole possession of the NFC West by the time tonight ends? I tend to think so, as I feel like the Cowboys will bounce back and hand the Cardinals a good drubbing.
