Rookie Seahawks LB Aaron Curry spent much of the game jawing with Rams RB Steven Jackson, a resumption of their activities in their first meeting of the season.
Said Seahawks DE Patrick Kerney, “Any win is a confidence builder, especially on
the road. We hadn’t done this yet,
so hopefully this will build our confidence and have us that much
better prepared for a big game against the 49ers.”
Seahawks RB Justin Forsett had 68 of his game-high 130 yards in the fourth quarter.
The Rams matched a franchise record by losing their 11th straight home game.

C Jason Brown became the third injured Rams offensive lineman when he left the game with a sprained right knee in the first half.

Wilson’s interception return for a touchdown was made worse by the fact that it came on fourth down after Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo opted not to try a 42-yard field goal.
