Despite forcing three turnovers in the first four Seattle possessions, the Rams were unable to make the Seahawks pay for their mistakes as the Rams drop their season opener 28-0 in Seattle. Matt Hasselback threw for three touchdowns.
It was just an odd game. Trailing 7-0, Seattle lined up for a field goal attempt and the Rams blocked it with James Butler scooping the ball up and taking it back the other way for six. However, the play was looked at in the booth and it was determined the Rams had 12 players on for the attempt. That penalty gave Seattle a first down and the Seahawks turned it into a touchdown to go up 14-0.
The Rams offense was held to just 77 yards of rushing and Steven Jackson was limited to 67 on 16 carries. The Seahawks almost had more than that on one run. In the fourth quarter, Seattle added their fourth touchdown when running back Julius Jones went 62 yards virtually untouched. He finished with 117 yards.
Marc Bulger was 17 of 36 for 191 yards.
