There is been plenty of blame to go around for the Seattle Seahawks six losses this season. The same holds true following their fourth win on the season, a convincing 24-7 win against the St. Louis Rams (2-8).
Despite appearing the better team on paper, this is the type of game the Seahawks managed to lose earlier this year. They had two early turnovers, the second leading to a 7-0 deficit.
Seattle could have easily let their early struggles derail their game on Sunday, too...but they didn't.
Tarvaris Jackson rallied after throwing interceptions on his first two passes of the game. Even without those passes, his day won't go down as one to remember.
Seattle did rally and followed their game plan on Sunday. They played stingy defense and ran the ball well enough to effectively control the pace of the game.
The offense was far from dominant, as Seattle managed just 3.2 yards per carry and failed to reach 300 yards in offense. That won't lead to a win in most games.
However, Seattle forced three turnovers and held the Rams offense in check.
For this game, the Seahawks offense did enough. More importantly, the team effort was a demonstration of how the Seahawks intend to win games.
If only they played the Rams, whom they've beaten in 12 of the last 13 contests, more than twice a season.
