What a disaster the red-zone series were for the Rams.
In the third quarter, following a pass interference call on Seattle, the Rams had the ball at the 1-yard line. They seemed poised to score.
Except they didn't.
The Rams went with Steven Jackson in the "Wildcat" look on the first down. They pulled a guard, and the Seahawks destroyed the play. On second down, Bradford tried a play-action pass and was nearly tackled by the backside defense rusher for Seattle.
Bradford was called for intentional grounding as he threw the ball to no one. Then on third down, Bradford was forced to throw the ball away when no one was open in the end zone. The Rams kicked a field goal.
In the fourth quarter, the Rams again failed to score after Danario Alexander had the ball in his hands in the end zone. Seattle bailed out the Rams with a taunting penalty on third down. Steven Jackson was then able to punch the ball in.
However, these two series were not productive. Only a Seattle penalty saved the Rams.
