Seahawks vs. Rams score update: St. Louis trails 7-3 after 1st quarter

After 15 minutes in St. Louis, the Rams trail their NFC West rival Seattle, 7-3. Each team scored on their opening possession with both offenses moving the ball without much initial resistance.

The Seahawks took the early 7-0 lead on their opening drive, with running back Marshawn Lynch sneaking his way through a congested first level and kicking it outside for the score. Lynch bolted to the left pylon for the 18-yard score, his second of the season.

The Rams responded on their opening possession, driving down the field for a bombed field goal from Greg Zuerlein to get on the board. The drive stalled out just outside the 40-yard line, but Zuerlein connected from 58 yards to make it 7-3. Sam Bradford hit on a couple short passes but the big play of the drive was a 23-yard scamper by Steven Jackson, who went off right tackle to move the ball into Seattle territory. Jackson rushed six times for 37 yards in the opening quarter.

The Rams will start the second quarter with the ball after forcing a Seattle punt on their second possession.
