Rams remain on top of NFC West after a dominating win over Cardinals

New, comments

While the Seahawks and Cardinals tie for last place.

The San Francisco 49ers notched their first win Sunday against the Detroit Lions, putting them at 1-1. If they want a shot at the division, they will need to keep the momentum up when they head to Kansas City to face the Chiefs. The Los Angeles Rams won their second game of the season, laying a drubbing to the Arizona Cardinals. This puts them at first place and the Cardinals in last place. Week 2 is a wrap, let’s look at the standings.

Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks were absolutely dominated by the Chicago Bears. If Khalil Mack doesn’t tell them to trade up for an elite offensive lineman in the 2019 draft, nothing will. Russell Wilson was unlike himself, getting sack after sack. and sealing the deal with an awful pick six. The Bears offense had some issues with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky throwing two interceptions, but the Seahawk’s putrid play made them able to not worry about that.

Los Angeles Rams/Arizona Cardinals

Two things are certain: The Rams are in first place atop the NFC West for 2018, and the Cardinals never will be. The Cardinals suffered an absolute thumping to the tune of 34-0 in the Rams’ house, looking awful in the process. Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford threw for only 90 yards and the Cardinals accounted for 144 yards of total offense.

Meanwhile the Rams looked nothing short of dominant with quarterback Jared Goff throwing for 354 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Running back Todd Gurley may have only 41 yards from scrimmage but he also got fed three touchdowns.

Into Week 3

The Rams sit one win in front of the 49ers holding the lead of the NFC West at 2-0. The 49ers sit right behind them at 1-1. The Seahawks and the Cardinals both sit tied for third place, having not won yet this season.
