Unfamiliar Territory

On Sunday the Rams found themselves in unknown territory. The Rams were actually winning a football game at halftime. What is wrong with this picture?

The Rams racked up 243 yards in the first half and the defense had a field day taking the ball away from Seattle and dominating the half.

The Rams defense held the Seahawks to only 76 yards and seven points in the first half. This is were the Rams have failed all year. The Rams can't put two good half's together if they tried. The second half the Seahawks pounded the Rams for 257 yards and 16 points.

If you were watching the game you got a two-for-one special. It looked like two separate games all rolled into one. Domination and futility.

The Rams are a professional team and should be able to shut the door in games like this. Whether it's the coaching staff, or lack of concentration of the players, the Rams haven't done this all year. It's unfamiliar territory to them.
