Seahawks Vs. Rams: Seattle Defense Shuts Down St. Louis In 24-7 Victory - SB Nation Seattle

ANIMATED: Red Bryant Interception And Stiff-Arm Of Austin Pettis - The Daily Drip - SB Nation Seattle
The Seattle Seahawks have had a pretty good day against the St. Louis Rams. Perhaps (no, not perhaps, more like most definitely) the highlight of the day for Seattle involved defensive tackle Red Bryant. After the jump, you can see this play here. Let's just say it's not a good sign for the opposition when Bryant is the guy who has the best stiff-arm on the team on Sunday.

17 Power, A Seattle Seahawks Blog: On the Possible Re-Signing of Marshawn Lynch
TNT reported this week that reps for RB Marshawn Lynch have reached out to the Seahawks for discussions over a multi-year contract. Lynch has accrued enough playing time this year to trigger a contract provision voiding the final year of his contract, making him a free-agent after this season. So why are we feeling hesitant about this re-signing?

Seahawks Vs. Rams Recap: The Rams Make Sam Bradford And Their Few Remaining Fans Sad - Turf Show Times
The St. Louis Rams are officially a disaster. The fans who showed up at the Edward Jones Dome today to watch the game no doubt thought about that as they filed out, at the start of the fourth quarter with the Rams buried by an insurmountable 17-7 lead. The kind of play, not to mention the status of coaching in St. Louis, was enough to make children cry. It was even enough to make one grown man sad, very sad. Rams fans, meet Sam Sadford, er, Bradford.

Red Bryant Interception Helps Bury The Rams - Turf Show Times
The St. Louis Rams are collapsing hard and fast, faster than anyone might have imagined. Quarterback Sam Bradford was just picked off by Seattle defensive lineman Red Bryant. However, Bradford is not really the story here, Bryant’s fat guy interception is the story. Bryant even included a stiff arm to make if all the more special.

VIDEO: Sam Bradford Sacked, Fumbles To Set Seahawks Up For Touchdown - Turf Show Times
The Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams need all the help they can get. Decimated by injuries, both teams have struggled offensively in a division showdown today. However, a sack-fumble combination from Seattle defensive end Chris Clemons may have been just what the doctor ordered for the Seahawks. Bradford was pulled down at his own 38-yard line by Clemons. Seattle got the ball back on the Rams' 25-yard line. Check out the video of Clemons' sack and the fumble return.

Rams Fall to Seahawks 24-7 | Missouri Sports Magazine
The St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks, NFC West Rivals, are both reinventing themselves as running teams.  Steven Jackson and Marshawn Lynch have been outstanding for their respective teams, with Jackson getting 417 yards in his last three weeks and Lynch gaining 244 yards in the last two weeks.  But both teams did well in limiting the running game of their opponent on Sunday.  But the Seahawks took advantage of turnovers and timely runs to win 24-7.

The Brewery | Instant replay: A brief sketch of the Seahawks' victory over St. Louis | Seattle Times Newspaper
Why the Seahawks won: The formula is simple, if not easy to execute. Dominate on defense. Play solid special teams. Take advantage of turnovers. And manage to stay out of your own way on offense. That's basically what Pete Carroll wants from this team, and for a second straight game, the Seahawks did enough right to claim a victory. It wasn't pretty on offense, but the defense carried the Seahawks. Marshawn Lynch made the most of the few holes that he found, rushing for 88 yards on 27 carries. Just like the Baltimore game, his yards per carry average (3.3) wasn't impressive, but the commitment to the run helped the Seahawks play ball-control offense. Despite losing right tackle James Carpenter and right guard John Moffitt to knee injuries over the past week, the Seahawks were able to run for 126 yards. Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson didn't play well (14 of 24 for 148 yards and two interceptions), but he threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Sidney Rice to tie the game at 7. The Seahawks won despite committing 13 penalties for a second straight week.

A couple of good pieces on Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon | Smart Football
One is a profile (or anti-profile), while the other includes excerpts of interviews with Big 12 cornerbacks who’ve had to face him. The latter touches on the points that make Blackmon maybe the best college wide receiver I’ve seen in some time: (1) that he is focused and goes hard on every play and seems to never get tired because he’s in fantastic condition and (2) that he is not as big as he plays — he’s listed at 6’1″, but is extremely physical and plays large.
