2-minute drill: Rams 19, Seahawks 13
Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein kicked four field goals in the game, including the two longest ever made by a Seahawks opponent as he made a first-half kick of 58 yards and third quarter boot of 60.
Marshawn Lynch rushed for 118 yards on 20 carries, and his 18-yard scoring run in the first quarter was Seattle's only touchdown of the game.
Play of the game
The Rams lined up for a field-goal attempt, and it wasn't until just before the ball was snapped that one of Seattle's coaches upstairs in the booth recognized receiver Danny Amendola lined up right against the Rams' sideline. Amendola participated in the previous play so he did not have to report to the huddle. Coach Pete Carroll said he ran onto the field trying to call timeout, but the officials didn't see him before the Rams snapped the ball, holder Johnny Hekker throwing to an uncovered Amendola on a 2-yard scoring pass that was St. Louis' only touchdown in the game.
Seattle came out for the third quarter, trailing 13-7 and kicking off to St. Louis when the Seahawks decided to try an onside kick. It felt a little desperate, and it turned out to bite Seattle in a big way. The Rams recovered it at the Seattle 48, and while Seattle's defense held them without a first down, St. Louis scored on a 60-yard field goal that turned out to be very important.
Seattle's defensive ends had no sacks in the game despite the fact St. Louis was starting backup Wayne Hunter at left tackle. Quarterback Sam Bradford didn't spend much time in the pocket, getting the ball out quick.
Seattle did not commit a turnover in its past two games. They committed three Sunday on interceptions, none of which were entirely Russell Wilson's fault.
