Any hope that the St. Louis Rams might be able to put together their first winning streak of the season was eliminated early in the second half, when the Seattle Seahawks defense took over the game, leading their team to a dominant 24-7 win.
After throwing a TD pass to Brandon Lloyd on the opening drive of the game, St. Louis QB Sam Bradford struggled mightily, completing only 20/40 for 181 yards. Bradford fumbled twice and also threw an interception in another poor performance. The Rams also failed to get any production from Steven Jackson, as the rugged RB rushed for only 42 yards on 15 carries.
Although the Rams defense was able to consistently pressure Seattle QB Tarvaris Jackson, the defensive line was eventually run ragged by the combination of Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett, who combined to run the ball 31 times for 119 yards and 2 TD's. Due to the lack of production from the offense, the St. Louis defense seemed to be on the field throughout the second half.
The Rams will look to bounce back from this loss when they host Arizona next weekend. Seattle will hope to reel off its third consecutive win when it hosts Washington on Sunday.
