For example, the Seahawks had only 135 yards of offense compared to 339 yards for the Rams. It was the fewest yards the Seahawks recorded in a win since they had 128 in a win over the San Diego Chargers in 2000.
Entering Monday’s game, teams that outgained their opponent by 200 or more yards were 291-37 (an .887 winning percentage) since the start of the 2001 season. Make that 291-38 now.
Seattle also had only seven first downs compared to 23 for the Rams. The Dolphins’ victory over the Jets three years also was last time a team won with seven or fewer first downs.
The Seahawks ran only 40 offensive plays Monday compared to 71 for the Rams. St. Louis had the ball for 38 minutes, 9 seconds, but never reached the end zone.
