Cooper Kupp tears ACL in Rams' Week 10 victory

Cooper Kupp tears ACL in Rams' Week 10 victory

"We're going to keep running the football, keep setting the tempo", Carroll said. Seattle (4-5) led 29-25 in first downs and 30:37-29:23 in time of possession.

"I was sorry to hear about (Kupp) like everybody else", Reynolds said.

The Los Angeles Rams canceled practice Friday after a wildfire forced about 20 players and coaches to evacuate their homes.

One of the Los Angeles Rams' top receivers, Cooper Kupp, is done for the season with a anterior cruciate ligament tear in his knee. The Rams only won by two points in Seattle, as it was the first real test of the season. They also have a two-pronged offensive attack that can beat you on the ground with Todd Gurley, or in the air with Jared Goff. The Rams held a moment of silence before the game.

In a game with three lead changes and one tie, the Rams league-leading offense outgained the Seahawks, 456 yards to 414.

Here are five interesting and insane stats from L.A.'s Week 10 win over the Seahawks, including one that shows how bad the run defense was. Carroll was asked what he meant with several postgame comments about how Seattle's coaches had been sternly pushing Penny and "challenging him to get right". I kind of anxious about two or three plays ahead instead of the one play that I needed to focus on. They have not only come out firing in the second half, but made the necessary adjustments to put themselves in a spot to win the game in the second half. Is he ever? And Gurley ran for 120 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 40 more yards. He also has 13 rushing touchdowns, and another four receiving touchdowns.

Penny entered Sunday with 146 yards on 42 carries (3.48 average). But no one would have expected Penny to be third in the pecking order behind Carson and Davis when Seattle chose him 27th overall, making him the second tailback off the board, behind Saquon Barkley. He is the fourth player in league history to score a TD in each of his team's first 10 games.

The Rams responded with a 10-play, 86-yard drive, with Goff throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to tight end Gerald Everett. Especially if Penny comes close to duplicating his production on Sunday when the running back ran for 108 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown.
