Players of the game

• Defensive end Chris Clemons had three sacks — most by any Seahawk since Dec. 9, 2007 — and also forced two second-half fumbles.

• Defensive end Red Bryant had half a sack and his first NFL interception.

Play of the game

Sidney Rice took a handoff on the game's first play and looked to be running a sweep — only to stop and throw to fellow receiver Mike Williams. Rice put lots of air under the ball — maybe even too much — but the result was a 55-yard reception. It matched Seattle's longest play of the season.

Turning point

Everybody knows the Seahawks like big cornerbacks, but the 330-pound Bryant dropping back into coverage was quite a sight. Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane tipped Sam Bradford's pass at the line, it bounced off Austin Pettis' hands, and Bryant watched the ball fall right into his hands to set up Seattle's final touchdown.

Seahawks surprises

• Seattle held Rams running back Steven Jackson to 42 yards. He has never rushed for 100 yards in a game against Seattle.

• Seattle did not allow a rushing touchdown for the sixth consecutive game.

By the numbers

118.8 Rice's quarterback rating.

55.6 Jackson's quarterback rating.

34 plays run by Seattle in St. Louis' half of the field.

7 plays run by St. Louis in Seattle's half of the field.

6 touchdowns for Marshawn Lynch in his last six starts.


Rams LB Josh Hull strained a hamstring in the first quarter; LT Mark LeVoir suffered a shoulder injury and did not return. Hawks WR Rice cramped up in the second half.


Coach Pete Carroll: "We came out and played so miserably in the first quarter, particularly on offense, and we just couldn't get started. We couldn't get out of our own way. ... What was really done well by our guys is that they did not waver. Nobody lost their mind on it, and nobody got down in the dumps."
