The Seahawks ended one of their most impressive streaks, and they did so playing a sloppy and mistake-filled game.

The Seahawks had led in 62 consecutive games entering Sunday, an NFL record. They never led against the Rams. (They almost lost perhaps their most amazing streak: They still haven’t lost a game by more than 10 points since October 2011, the longest such streak in the NFL.)

How that happened is more troubling than the end result. The Seahawks turned the ball over three times — twice by quarterback Russell Wilson and once by fullback Will Tukuafu. Tukuafu’s fumble was returned for a touchdown, and Wilson’s final turnover, a fumble, all but ended Seattle’s hopes of a comeback.

And the Seahawks also hurt themselves time and again with undisciplined penalties and mistakes that killed offensive drives. If the penalties didn’t kill drives entirely, they at least switched field position, of which the Rams took advantage.

It was not a crisp game from the Seahawks. The Rams beat them, but the Seahawks offered plenty of help. That’s the part the Seahawks can’t let happen.
