After a sluggish start, a good win by the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle’s defense held the St. Louis Rams to 224 total yards. The defense earned its first shutout since Nov. 12, 2007, a 24-0 win over San Francisco. The last time the Seahawks opened the year with a shutout was 1998, a 38-0 win at Philadelphia.
Some quick stats. After a shaky start, Matt Hasselbeck finished 25 of 36 for 279 yards, 3 TDs and 2 INTs.
Nate Burleson finished with seven receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown. John Carlson had six catches for 95 yards and two scores. T.J. Houshmandzadeh finished with six catches for 48 yards.
And Julius Jones had his first 100-yard rushing performance of the day, finishing with 117 yards on 19 carries, including a 62-yard jaunt for a score.
That’s all for now. We’ll have a report from the locker room in a little bit.
