The Seattle Seahawks fell to the punchy St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
The Seattle Seahawks fell to a hard-nosed St. Louis Rams club on Sunday afternoon at the Edward Jones Dome, and there appear to be obvious chinks in the armor.
With no Kam Chancellor anchoring the Seahawks secondary, new Rams quarterback Nick Foles was able to move his offense at will. Foles was an efficient 18-for-27 for 297 yards and one touchdown. The Rams’ running back by committee also ground out 76 yards on 26 carries. For a team that entered the game with a lot of question marks on offense, St. Louis looked every bit a well oiled machine after shaking off the first quarter rust.
With the teams knotted heading into overtime, Carroll pulled a head-scratching move to try an onside kick. It didn’t work and St. Louis was given the ball with excellent field position. The Rams would kick a field goal and then hold Seattle on the ensuring possession. For the second time in as many games, Carroll will find himself answering questions regarding his late-game coaching.
Nick Foles – 18-for-27, 297 yards, 1 TD
Benjamin Cunningham – 16 rushes, 45 yards; 4 receptions, 77 yards
Aaron Donald – 9 total tackles (5 solo), 2 sacks, 3 tackles for loss.
Four-point underdogs, the Rams blew up a lot of bets on Sunday.
The Seahawks will travel to Green Bay next Sunday and play at 7:30 p.m.
The Rams will travel to Washington to face the Redskins on Sunday.
