Nick Foles has moxy.
He took off running a couple of times in today’s win vs. the Seattle Seahawks. Both times, I said aloud, “Don’t get hurt… don’t get hurt” because that’s the narrative the last few years with a certain former Rams quarterback. He stepped into the endzone once and tossed a touchdown pass late in regulation. Tavon Austin scored a pair of touchdowns — one rushing and another on an impressive punt return that saw him avoid running out of bounds. Props to running back Benny Cunningham for playing his heart out.
Two fun facts: before today, Russell Wilson’s teams had never lost in overtime before. Speakin’ of Russ Willy, he’s faced the Rams seven times, and in those seven games he’s been sacked 31 times. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to write #Merica or #Rams here.
I was still pissed off, though. The Rams couldn’t tackle worth a damn at times. They were up 24-13 in the fourth quarter before allowing Seattle to score 18 unanswered points. The Rams also turned the ball over three times (fumbles) in the second half alone.
As a fan, I can’t complain, especially compared to the product I’ve been viewing since 2005.
