The Rams scored two touchdowns in the first quarter and never saw the end zone again against the Seahawks. Luckily for the Rams, their defense held Seattle to just four field goals in a 23-12 win at the Dome. Marc Bulger hit Kevin Curtis for a 15-yard strike and Steven Jackson scored from four yards out as the Rams raced to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Jeff Wilkins hit the first of his three field goals to give St. Louis a 13-0 lead. It was a good day for running backs: Shaun Alexander rushed for 176 yards, while Marshall Faulk had his best game of the season with 139 yards on the ground. The biggest play of the day came in the fourth quarter, with the Rams up 20-12. Alexander ran 35 yards to the Rams nine-yard line, when safety Aeneas Williams stripped him of the ball and Rich Coady recovered the fumble and the Rams prevented Seahawks from scoring. Despite their inability to score a touchdown after the first quarter, St. Louis still racked up 462 yards which is their best output of the season. Marc Bulger was 23-34 for 262 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. The win moved them into a tie for first with the Seahawks. Both teams are 5-4, but technically, St. Louis has the lead since they won both games against Seattle and are 4-0 within the NFC West….Left tackle Orlando Pace was ejected from the game in the third quarter for making contact with an official, though a replay showed that he was being pulled off a pile by a Seahawks player when he ran into side judge Don Carlson….Torry Holt left the game with a concussion.
