Doug Baldwin blocked a first-quarter punt that was returned by Michael Robinson 17 yards for a touchdown, then caught a 29-yard TD pass from Tarvaris Jackson in the third as the Seattle Seahawks pulled away for a 30-13 win over the slumping St. Louis Rams. One has to wonder how much longer Steve Spagnuolo will have his job as head coach?
Marshawn Lynch topped 100 yards rushing for the fifth time in the last six games, finishing with 115 on 23 carries. He scored a touchdown in his ninth straight game on a 16-yard run with 2:57 left to put away Seattle’s 13th win in its last 14 games against the Rams.
Sam Bradford started for the Rams who fall to 2-11, despite a high left ankle sprain. Bradford was rusty going 12 of 29 for 193 yards, and was intercepted by Brandon Browner on the first play of the second half and made several bad decisions. Steven Jackson finished with 63 yards on 20 carries.
