Seahawks vs. Rams halftime score: St. Louis leads, 13-7, after fake field goal

After one half at the Edward Jones Dome, the St. Louis Rams lead the Seattle Seahawks, 13-7. The Rams scored 10 points in the final two minutes to surge ahead heading into the locker room. St. Louis broke into the end zone for the first time at the end of the half, with a fake field goal from the two-yard line. Holder John Hekker hit a wide open Danny Amendola, who was cleverly set up in the corner of the end zone. The touchdown pushed the Rams lead to 10-7 with just over a minute remaining in the half.

The Rams forced a quick Seattle three-and-out on their final possession, forcing a punt and getting the ball back one final time with 34 seconds to play. Two quick completions moved the Rams into Zuerlein range, and the kicker connected one more time from 48 yards to make it 13-7.

Until he final two minutes, the second quarter was characterized by two turnovers, the first a bad throw by Bradford and the second a huge hit that resulted in a Trumaine Johnson pick. Bradford's pass was likely a miscommunication between he and Brandon Gibson, with Bradford hurling one into no-man's land on the right sideline, with Richard Sherman easily picking it off. The turnover abruptly ended a drive that had some momentum after a 52-yard strike from Bradford to Chris Givens.

The Rams would keep Seattle off the board, however, led by the Johnson pick that came on a simultaneous hit of Jonathan Baldwin – jarring the ball loose and taking possession before it hit the ground.
