Seahawks up 13-0 at the half

The Seahawks offense doesn’t look totally recovered from last week’s rough outing against the Cardinals, but their defense is in fine shape.

The Rams have just 54 yards at halftime and the Seahawks have forced a pair of turnovers on their way to a 13-0 lead. A win secures top billing and home field advantage in the NFC playoffs for the NFC West champions.

Malcolm Smith returned one Kellen Clemens interception for a touchdown and cornerback Byron Maxwell picked off another Clemens pass to give the offense time to find its footing. Russell Wilson was able to lead a couple of field goal drives, but sacks and penalties kept them from putting more points on the board.

Thanks to the defense, that hasn’t been a major problem. Based on what we’ve seen throughout the season, things aren’t likely to change much for a Rams team playing without wide receiver Tavon Austin again this week.

The Rams have also hurt themselves with penalties on both defense and special teams in a game that’s been physical and testy. The Seahawks have thrived in those kinds of games all year and they’ll just need to hold on for 30 more minutes to make it pay off with the top seed.

    “Hold on”? Hold on my butt…Pile some points on the board offensively, avoid injuries, and win the freaking game.

    Despite the score, the Rams defense is the star of the show so far. Shechickens O is getting smacked around.

    I’m a Seahawk fan and I am not impressed with our offense at all. What happened to tossing a couple designed screen plays to Lynch? How is the OL spout of synch?

    Now because we didn’t take care of business against Zona or SF, we have to play our starters and look what is happening, injuries to some key players on defense.

    I hope I am wrong, but with our lack luster offense, continual problems w/ penalties and porous O-Line, it will be tough to get past SF and Carolina they are hitting on many cylinders.

    I guess playing 3 of the Nfls top defenses in 4 weeks means Seattle sucks ..lol give them a break they clinched and played too relaxed offensively against some of the best teams in the NFL ..

    Ask niners if the cards are push overs ??

    Seattle is too good people, your wasting your time with any kind of hate towards us. You better hope for your teams sake that our offense and defense doesnt put an entire complete game together. Your team will be sent home
