Rams CB Janoris Jenkins left the game with what appears to be a shoulder or left arm injury. The injury occurred when he attempted to tackle Seattle QB Russell Wilson.
Jenkins is a candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year and is St. Louis' go-to-guy when it comes to big plays and defensive scores.
Jenkins has four defensive touchdowns on the season.
RB Steven Jackson busted out a 14-yard run in the first half, which put him over the 1,000-yard mark on the season.
Jackson now has 1,009 yards on the season and has surpassed 1,000 yards for the eighth-consecutive time.
Barry Sanders, Thurman Thomas, Curtis Martin, Emmitt Smith and Ladanian Tomlinson are the only other players in history to accomplish that feat.
All of them are in the Hall of Fame except for Tomlinson, who is not yet eligible.
Rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein started the season a perfect 13-for-13 on field-goals through the first five games, which earned him a number of nicknames such as "Greg the Leg", "Legatron" and "Young G.Z.".
The nicknames can stop. He has been plain awful ever since missing three field-goals in Miami during Week 6.
He is just 8-for-16 on field-goals since Week 6, and it's been getting to a point where is play is unacceptable.
The Rams has a chance to drill a 51-yard field-goal to close the half, but the kick was wide right.
Here at the two-minute warning in the first half, Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch already has 66 yards on eight carries (8.2 yards per carry).
Lynch has been a problem for the St. Louis defense, but the Seahawks have been held to just three points.
The difference has been the pressure and containment of QB Russell Wilson, who has already been sacked five times and held to just 10 rushing yards.
Rams took a 7-0 lead when Sam Bradford hit Austin Pettis in the endzone for a touchdown.
The Rams are the first team to score a first-half touchdown in Seattle since the New York Jets in Week 10.
Bringing the Heat
St. Louis' first drive of the game was stalled after Sam Bradford took a third-down hit that forced an incompletion.
Seattle's first drive ended in a punt after the Rams sacked Russell Wilson twice.
Both teams are having success bringing the heat early on, and it's likely this game will be determined by which team continues to rush the passer effectively.
St. Louis enters this game ranked 13th in the NFL with 35 sacks, while Seattle ranks 24th (27 sacks).
The Losing Way
The Rams have not won in Seattle since 2004. Here are the scores from St. Louis' seven-consecutive losses in the Emerald City:
2005: Seahawks 31, Rams 16
2006: Seahawks 24, Rams 22
2007: Seahawks 33, Rams 6
2008: Seahawks 37, Rams 13
2009: Seahawks 28, Rams 0
2010: Seahawks 16, Rams 6
2011: Seahawks 30, Rams 13
The Rams' 2004 victory is their only win in Seattle since the Seahawks joined the division in 2002, making it a 1-9 overall record in Seattle since 2002.
