After that 57 yard score, Rams RB Todd Gurley is up to 144 yards and three TDs — in the first half. Los Angeles is moving people off the ball today.

Todd Gurley, man. He just zipped by the entire Seahawks' defense, which looks thoroughly defeated at this point. 57 yards for his third touchdown of the first half. That's 144 yards on 16 carries for Gurley today, after 96 yards on 13 carries seven days earlier. MVP? He's making his case today.

Leading up to this game, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson called Rams DT Aaron Donald "the best defensive player I've ever played against." And Donald is wrecking this game. He has two sacks, two quarterback hits, a tackle for loss and a forced fumble, and he has been in the backfield all day.

Brandon Ingram says he thinks every day about how he has Kobe Bryant's old locker at Staples and how much of an honor it is. He says trying to work as hard as Bryant will help him deal with the pressure of filling Bryant's void.

We're more than three minutes away from halftime, and the Rams lead the Seahawks by a 27-0 score after a well-designed easy touchdown from Jared Goff to Robert Woods. The Rams are averaging 5.8 yards per play. The Seahawks: 1.8.

The Seahawks reach Rams territory for the first time, at the seven-minute mark of the second quarter, but then Russell Wilson moved back 12 yards and fumbled, giving the Rams the ball at the Seahawks' 38. Total dominance by this team.

Rams ILB Mark Barron is dealing with a knee injury and is officially listed as questionable. Cory Littleton, who has been a huge asset on special teams, will continue to fill in for him.

Todd Gurley with his second one-yard touchdown run of the game, giving the Rams a 20-0 lead at the 8-minute mark of the second quarter. That's his 15th touchdown, five more than his previous career high. Twelve of them have come on the ground. Both lead the NFL.

Lonzo Ball on what Kobe Bryant meant to him while he grew up idolizing LeBron James: "I feel like my game's more like LeBron's than Kobe's so I think that's why I gravitated toward his game more but Kobe's one of the best to ever do it and I'm glad both of his jerseys [are being] retired."

Pharoh Cooper entered ranked fourth in yards per punt return (11.91) and has been great today. 53 yards on one, 26 yards on the other. Rams have to take advantage of all this great field position they're getting.

This is the third straight drive the Rams have been without ILB Mark Barron. No word yet on his injury, but Cory Littleton has been in for him. Barron looked like he was testing his first step on the sideline, but now he is walking back to the locker room.

4th-and-1 from the Seahawks' 24. Rams go for it, but they run a bootleg and Seattle sniffs it out, causing an interception.

Todd Gurley has picked up 154 yards on his last 20 carries. I think that's good, but that's just my opinion.

Luke Walton recalls the first time he met Kobe Bryant and how Kobe, Karl Malone and Shaquille O'Neal had a bidding war for the right to "own" the then rookie Walton and make his "life a living hell" because of his father's TV commentary back then.

Robert Woods looks good despite missing the last three games with a sprained left shoulder. He's already hauled in 4 of his first 5 targets for 42 yards and made a couple of nice moves after the catch.

Todd Gurley has his NFL-leading 14th touchdown of the season and the Rams lead by two scores midway through the first quarter at CenturyLink Field. They've been the better team all year, and they're showing it early.

Pharoh Cooper shows why he is on track to make the Pro Bowl as a returner. 53-yard punt return, bringing the ball to the 1-yard line. He's been very, very good since taking over for Tavon Austin.

It's early, but the Rams are doing a nice job getting to Russell Wilson and finishing the job. Two sacks, and 14 yards allowed, within the first three possessions.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

A drop by Cooper Kupp on what would've been a first down, and the Rams have to settle for another field goal. That's two red-zone drives that have ended in field goals, keeping this a one-score game. Seahawks have been at their best late in games this season.
