Oh man, the Rams really needed this one. First-year head coach Scott Linehan is getting a ride on the roller-coaster that is the NFL. The bad thing for Linehan is he is on the part that dips and there is no telling how far the dip is.
St. Louis went back and forth with the Seahawks before eventually falling 24-22 on a Josh Brown field goal with nine seconds to play.
After starting the season 4-1, the Rams have dropped four straight and are sub-.500 for the first time this season.
Nate Burleson gave Seattle a 21-16 lead in the fourth-quarter on a 90-yard punt return. It was the first punt return for a touchdown for Seattle in three years.
Like all game long, the Rams responded with a score of its own. Steven Jackson burled through and literally carried Seahawks defenders into the end zone putting the Rams ahead. After a failed two-point conversion try, the Rams led 22-21.
Unfortunately for St. Louis fans, Brown has been the closer for Seattle all year long. Almost effortlessly, Brown nailed his fifth winning field goal since 2005.
