Monday Night Football Recap: Seahawks at Rams

For the first time since 2006, the St. Louis Rams hosted a Monday Night Football game last night.

Unfortunately for the Rams fans that showed up, history would repeat itself.

The Seattle Seahawks pulled out a 14-9 win against the Rams after a sloppy showdown. The game was riddled with mistakes, a couple coming from Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens who threw two picks in the game while throwing for only 158 yards.

It was tough on offense for the Seahawks as well as quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked  a career-high seven times.

Despite the loss, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher says he is proud that his team put up a fight until the very end; they had a pass fall incomplete in Seattle’s end zone as time expired.

Of course, the game did have its good points as well. Seahawks receiver Golden Tate scored the only two touchdowns for Seattle, one of them on an 80 yard catch in the third quarter.

Wilson credited Tate for his performance on the field.

Now, the Seahawks (7-1) look ahead to Sunday when they’ll host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-7) at 4:05 pm. Meanwhile, the Rams (3-5) will stay in St. Louis to host the Tennessee Titans (3-4) at 1 pm.
