Rams Beat Seahawks 9-3 on Zuerlein’s Leg in NFL Return to LA
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Greg Zuerlein kicked three field goals — the longest a 47-yarder in the fourth quarter — and the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Seattle Seahawks 9-3 on Sunday. The home team's win marked the return of pro football to the nation's second-largest market for the first time in nearly 22 years.
Plenty of penalties slowed down the game for the announced crowd of 91,046 on a searing day at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where the Rams marked the long-awaited occasion by wearing blue-and-gold throwback uniforms for their regular-season home debut.
Alec Ogletree recovered a fumble by Christine Michael, who caught a short pass from Russell Wilson, at the Los Angeles 29 with 57 seconds left in the game, ending the Seahawks' last scoring bid.
Seattle racked up 10 penalties for 114 yards; the Rams had nine penalties for 78 yards.
Seattle's Russell Wilson was 22 of 35 for 254 yards, getting sacked twice. He had sprained his right ankle in last week's win over Miami.
