NFL Schedules Week 5 Match Details

Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks


The last time the two faced each other was more than six months ago in the previous season. In that match, the Los Angeles Rams had defeated the Seattle Seahawks and moved on in the NFL playoffs at the latter's expense. Two weeks before that, the Seattle Seahawks had defeated the Los Angeles Rams to win the division title. The players of the Los Angeles Rams, such as Jared Goff and Aaron Donald, looked visibly upset. They watched their title hopes going away and were looking for another shot in the future. They got the chance in this match. The players of the Los Angeles Rams covered a lot of yards and also had a great defense. Geoff had said, "We come up here, and all week we were told how good they are and how we snuck into the playoffs. Two weeks ago, you saw them smoking cigars and getting all excited about beating us and winning the division. We were able to come up here and beat them."


The game being played was the NFL wild-card playoff game that the Los Angeles Rams won. Akers had covered more than 130 yards in the match and also scored a touchdown. Darius Williams had returned Russell Wilson's interception nearly 50 yards for a score. Rams coach Sean McVay had said, "a lot of guys stepped up and answered the bell in a big way. Darius Williams showing up, I thought that was a huge momentum shift for us." The top defense in the NFL during the main season carried their dominance into the playoffs. This was even when they were missing unanimous All-Pro tackle Aaron Donald for most of the second half. No other team was as good at limiting points or yards as the Los Angeles Rams. They continued to trouble Wilson.


The Seattle Seahawks quarterback was under attack from the defensive front and a secondary that, apart from one play, never let Tyler Lockett or DK Metcalf get free. Jalen Ramsey and Donald were superb before the latter had to leave because of a rib injury. But so were other role players such as Leonard Floyd, Jordan Fuller, and Troy Reeder. Leonard Floyd had a couple of sacks for the Los Angeles Rams. Some of the other sacks were by Donald. The Los Angeles Rams only permitted less than 12 first downs and about 280 total yards. The win sent the Los Angeles Rams into the divisional playoff round, where they faced the top-seeded Green Bay. McVay had said, "we are excited about competing to go see whom we play next and see if we can keep this thing rolling. But we will enjoy this."


The third interception by Williams against Wilson after picking him off a couple of times in the home game came when he jumped a wide receiver screen that was intended for Metcalf and returned it untouched for a ten-point lead in the second quarter. Akers then had a short touchdown run before halftime. But the ten-point lead remained. It was enough against a Seattle offense that was confused and disjointed right from the beginning. Wilson had one of the worst performances in the playoff. Wilson partnered with Metcalf for a couple of touchdowns. He got more than 50 yards in the first half off a fractured play. Then, he had a touchdown of more than ten yards with only two minutes remaining on the clock to make the score more comprehensive. Seattle coach Pete Carroll had said, "I told these guys I have no place in my brain for this outcome. We were planning on winning and moving on."


New York Jets vs. Atlanta Giants


A lot has been refreshed for the New York Jets this year. They have new full stadiums, elongated schedules, new players, a new quarterback, and a head coach. This is after last year's coronavirus lockdowns had kept attendances very minimal. There is another new thing. One of the games in the schedule of the New York Jets will not be played at any stadium in the country. The match will be played in London. The New York Jets will go against the Atlanta Falcons at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in October. The match will be Atlanta's home game. But they will not be able to host it in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. This would have been the first regular-season visit of the New York Jets to the new home stadium of the Atlanta Giants. 


Instead, for the first time in more than five years, the New York Jets will play a match in London. It will be their first time playing in the home stadium of Tottenham Hotspur. The stadium has already hosted a couple of NFL matches a few years ago. The first visit of the New York Jets to London was for their away match against Miami in the middle of the NFL season six years ago. They had also improved their record heading into the bye week. The right-back Chris Ivory had more than 160 yards and a touchdown on nearly 30 carries. WR Brandon Marshall had almost 130 yards on more than six receptions from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. CB Darrelle Revis had an interception, while the defense had a couple of them in total. Muhammad Wilkerson had a couple of sacks of Ryan Tannehill, who was the quarterback of the Dolphins at that time.


The Jets' stars for this game will all be different. They could have as many as all 10 of their draft choices on the Tottenham pitch for this one, led by first-round QB Zach Wilson. Providing the Green & White offense could be veteran slot receiver Jamison Crowder, unrestricted free agent wideouts Corey Davis and Keelan Cole, second-year WR Denzel Mims and vet TE Chris Herndon, and young RB La'Mical Perine and more experienced back Tevin Coleman. The defense will try to get after veteran Falcons QB Matt Ryan with the likes of third-year DL Quinnen Williams, newly arrived edge rusher Carl Lawson, veteran MLB C.J. Mosley, and fifth-year S Marcus Maye showing the way.


The London match that is to be played this year will only be one of the few games that have been played by the New York Jets outside the nation. Their first couple of international matches occurred in the preseason. They had played in Montreal's Olympic Stadium more than 30 years ago as hosts. They had won against the Browns. After that, they had played in the Tokyo Dome in the preseason-opening Japan Bowl nearly 20 years ago when they lost against the Buccaneers.
