The St. Louis Rams (3-5) put up a fight against the powerhouse Seattle Seahawks (7-1), but the effort was spoiled with a 14-9 loss.
The St. Louis defense held Marshawn Lynch to 23 yards and hassled Russell Wilson with seven sacks, but the second-year quarterback managed to find Golden Tate for two touchdown passes, which turned out to be the difference.
Zac Stacy led the St. Louis offense with 134 rushing yards and the Seattle defense had no answer for him. On the final drive, St. Louis marched 97 yards down field in the final minutes for a shot at winning the game, but rough playcalling at the goal line allowed Seattle to exit with a victory.
Seattle will attempt to pick up its eighth win of the season against Tampa Bay next week. St. Louis will take on Jeff Fisher's former team when it hosts Tennessee a week from now.
Thank you for following and be sure to stop by next week.
Seattle Seahawks 14, St. Louis Rams 9
