St. Louis Rams starting center and former Missouri Tiger Tim Barnes was a junior at Pettis County Northwest High School in Hughesville, Mo. the last time the Rams won a game in Seattle. That was during the 2004 playoffs back in January of ’05. The Rams beat Seattle for the second time this season with a 23-17 final.
Barnes came up with two fumble recoveries deep in Seattle territory just before Todd Gurley iced the game with a touchdown.
Barnes bailed out the Rams the first time after back Benny Cunningham converted a third-and-1 but fumbled it forward. Barnes was able to take it away from Seahawks safety Earl Thomas. The second came after a Gurley run to Seattle’s nine, when the ball came out. Three plays later, Gurley scored to seal the win.
Barnes recovered two fumbles in a span of three plays.
