Defense Rules

The St. Louis Rams hosted the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday. As this season goes by, nothing is surprising any more for the Rams. They lost again 24-7. 

The Rams defense has played fairly well as of late and this game started out in the same fashion. In the first quarter, the Rams had two interceptions and a blocked punt. They only managed seven points on those turnovers. 

After the first quarter it was all Seattle. Their defense showed up big time. The Seahawks held the Rams to 185 total yards. The Rams had only 42 yards rushing for the game. This was the second worst offensive showing of the season. 

The Seahawks were all over Sam Bradford too. They picked him off once, caused two fumbles, and sacked him five times. The Rams had four sacks of their own, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Seahawk’s offense. The Rams defense gave up only 298 total yards, but Seattle made the most of their offensive possessions. They held the ball 35:00 to 25:00 minutes. The Seahawks defense made the Rams punt ten times. That is a terrible statistic. 

The Rams have the Cardinals this weekend and are going to be looking for some payback since their loss to them in overtime earlier this year. I just hope it’s the Rams defense that rules this weekend.
