    The Rams and the Seahawks first met week 1 of the season and the Rams prevailed 35 - 24. Not only did the Seahawks want to avenge that loss, but they needed a division win to keep up in tight NFC West race.

    The Seahawks got what they needed.

    The Rams won the toss and elected to receive. In the first meeting, Steven Jackson took his first carry for a 73 yard touchdown. This time he went for an easy 15 yards. More of the same the Seahawks thought as the Rams moved down field for and scored on a TD pass to TE Bo Scaife.

    Seahawks answered on the next drive with Jamarcus Austin moving his team down field with relative ease. He would score a TD on a pass to Emmanuel Sanders. On the Rams 2nd drive, Seahawks forced a 3 and out and, again, scored a TD, this time on a QB sneak from Austin. On the Ram's next drive Steven Jackson and Chris Robinson had the team moving again, but on 3rd and goal, Robinson, who is normally very efficient in the red zone, threw a pick to Gabril Wilson who returned it for a pick 6. The Rams would answer with a field goal, but left too much time on the clock for Austin to operate, and within the final minute of the 1st half, Austin found fan favorite Patrick Turner wide open for a 57 yard TD.

    At the half, the score was 27-10.

    In the 2nd half the Seahawks kept the momentum going, as Austin threw a 2nd TD pass to Patrick Turner on the first drive of the 3rd quarter. Finally awoken, the Rams offense picked up steam and put up 2 TDs, the latter set up by a superb INT by big money FA James Harrison. It was too little too late, and after the Seahawks added 2pts on a safety by Michael Johnson, the 'Hawks emerged victorious 36-24.

    Player of the game was Jamacus Austin(12-14 238 yards, 3 tds, 1 int, 1 rushing TD). Rams elected to play man and assign a spy to Austin on most downs...and he made them pay with his arm.
