For many Seahawks fans, Sunday’s 42-7 loss to the Rams was a blowout of proportions never before seen. They entered the half Sunday trailing 34-0. Even as the clock ticked down and the Rams tried to run it into halftime, Todd Gurley exploded for one of his three first-half touchdowns.

Frankly, it was a historic deficit. They’ve lost at home by more than the 35-point margin Sunday only once before. It was the worst loss of the Pete Carroll era.
