This game wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win, and the Seattle Seahawks have their first two-game winning streak of the season with a 24-7 victory at St. Louis.
The Seahawks have won six of the past seven times here at the Edward Jones Dome, and now sit at 4-6 overall on the year, with their next three games at home.
Once again, Seattle’s defense was the story. They held St. Louis running back Steven Jackson to 42 yards on the ground. Jackson had averaged 130 yards a contest in his last three games.
Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was not at his best, finishing with just 148 passing yards and two interceptions, the second of which led to the Rams’ only score, a 30-yard touchdown pass from Sam Bradford to Brandon Lloyd.
* Marshawn Lynch finished with 88 yards on 26 carries, and a 3-yard touchdown run. Lynch has now scored a touchdown in six straight games.
* Sidney Rice completed a 55-yard reverse pass to Mike Williams to open the game, but Jackson threw a pick on the very next play.
* Red Bryant got his first career interception off of a Brandon Mebane tip.
*And Justin Forsett capped the game with a 22-yard touchdown run.
What are your thoughts on Seattle’s performance as they head back home for three straight games? Are they improving? What about the play of Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman at corner?
