It was third time lucky for the Los Angeles Rams in London as they enjoyed a 33-0 rout over the Arizona Cardinals. Todd Gurley and Jared Goff scored quickfire touchdowns late in the first half, Zach Guerlein kicked four field goals and Cooper Kupp added the exclamation point late on as the Rams cruised to victory in this critical match-up between two NFC West rivals. It came almost 12 months to the day after Los Angeles lost 17-10 to the New York Giants on this ground, and five years after the Rams - then of St Louis - were thrashed 45-7 by the New England Patriots at Wembley.

Talk about a clunker of a day around the NFL: There were three shutouts in a span of about 6½ hours, the same number of zeros put up throughout all of last season.With all of the emphasis on offense over the years, with rule changes intended to make it

The Seattle Seahawks had it all on display against the New York Giants, and not even a minor first-half blowup between receiver Doug Baldwin and assistant coach Tom Cable could get in their way. Russell Wilson threw three second-half touchdown passes, the Seahawks limited the Giants' receiver-depleted offense to season-low 177 yards and Seahawks overcame a first half in which they were their own worst enemy in posting a 24-7 win on Sunday. It was a performance that seemed worthy of the Seattle in the 2013 Super Bowl season, except for the first half which the Giant lead 7-3.

The way Seattle was moving the ball on offense and how its defense was dominating the banged-up New York Giants, Russell Wilson knew it would just be a matter of time before the Seahawks found a way to win. Wilson threw three second-half touchdown passes and the Seahawks limited the Giants' receiver-depleted offense to season-low 177 yards in a 24-7 win on Sunday. ''The score was 7-3 and we were calm,'' Wilson said.

Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin shoved Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable during a second quarter player huddle on the sidelines during Sunday's 24-7 win over the New York Giants. After the game, Baldwin took full responsibility and apologized to Cable. Seattle coach Pete Carroll had told Cable to talk to the offense but Baldwin pushed him away because he wanted quarterback Russell Wilson to be the voice addressing the team's offensive woes.

SCOREBOARD Monday, Oct. 23 Washington at Philadelphia, 8:30 p.m. EDT. Carson Wentz and the Eagles (5-1) lead the NFC East, are first in the conference and enter having won four straight games, including an impressive 28-23 victory at Carolina. Meanwhile

Days after the NFL declined to change its rule on the national anthem, about two dozen players protested around the league Sunday. On Sept. 25, days after President Donald Trump said players should be fired for protesting during the anthem, more than 200 players protested. Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett and seven Seahawks teammates did not stand during the anthem before their game with the New York Giants.

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns, Le'Veon Bell added 192 total yards, and Pittsburgh's defense dominated the Cincinnati Bengals in the second half of a 29-14 victory on Sunday. The Steelers (5-2) relied on their stars to take the lead, then on their reinvigorated defense to blunt Cincinnati and give themselves a significant cushion over the rest of the underwhelming AFC North. The Bengals (2-4) came in looking to add some street cred to their resurgence after their 0-3 start, but instead spent the second half reverting to the kind of ineffective offense that got offense coordinator Ken Zampese fired two weeks into the season.
