Rams Vs. Seahawks Score Update: Defense Is Key As Rams Trail 10-7 At Half

One of the keys for the recent Rams success has been the play of the defense. This formula has continued in the first half of the NFC West matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, as the Rams trail 10-7 at halftime.

The defense has been particularly active rushing the passer, as they have recorded four sacks and numerous hurries. Rookie DE Robert Quinn has been effective, recording a sack and also partially blocking a punt to help give the Rams good field position. The defense has also forced two interceptions from Seattle QB Tarvaris Jackson, with Quintin Mikiell and Chris Chamberlain both picking off the Seahawks QB.

Consistency on offense continues to be an issue for St. Louis, with Sam Bradford struggling with his accuracy and Steven Jackson not able to create many opportunities. Bradford has completed only 8/17 for 78 yards and a TD despite the fact that a makeshift offensive line has done a decent job with protection. Jackson has been limited to only 25 yards on 10 carries in the opening half.
