Wyman’s Football 101: Earl Thomas’ interception vs Rams

Oct 11, 2017, 9:10 AM | Updated: 9:12 am

Safety Earl Thomas was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week following his phenomenal performance Sunday in the Seahawks’ 16-10 win over the Rams. Thomas made what might have been the key play of the game for Seattle when he tackled Rams running back Todd Gurley at the goal line, chopping the football loose and forcing Gurley to fumble the ball into the pylon. The Seahawks were awarded possession in a rarely-seen turnover rule.

The play stole the show and was the first of five turnovers for the Seahawks, but Thomas also accounted for another interception in the fourth quarter. In the video above, Dave Wyman breaks down that play. It was an example, Dave said, of hard work paying off for a defensive group — and he credits another defensive player for forcing Rams quarterback Jared Goff to throw high, resulting in the pick. Wyman also revisits the records of teams that have finished in the top five in turnover ratio — and Seattle currently sits at No. 5 on the season.
