Seattle at St. Louis 11-29-09

November 29, 2009


The struggling Seahawks look to snap a six-game road losing streak while trying for a 10th consecutive win over the lowly Rams on Sunday. While St. Louis (1-9) is tied with Tampa Bay for the worst record in NFC and has already clinched a third straight losing season, Seattle is not playing much better.

The Seahawks (3-7) are trying to avoid a third straight loss overall after falling 35-9 at Minnesota last Sunday. Seattle’s six straight road losses have all come by double digits, and it has allowed an average of 32.5 points in those games. Its last road win came Dec. 14, 23-20 at St. Louis. The Seahawks, however, are averaging 29.7 points during their nine-game winning streak over the Rams. St. Louis, which has lost 10 in a row at home since beating Dallas in October 2008, last beat Seattle 23-12 on Nov. 14, 2004. In order to continue dominating this series, Seattle must find a way to bounce back from another blowout loss.

Second in the NFL with 1,031 rushing yards, Jackson had 116 and a TD on 24 carries in a 21-13 home loss to Arizona last Sunday. Jackson, who became the first Rams player to post five consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, has rushed for 721 yards in 10 games against the Seahawks, but has failed to reach 100 yards in any single one of those contests. Kyle Boller will make his third start of the season in place of Bulger, expected to miss three to six weeks with a broken left shin bone suffered last Sunday. The Rams have lost two in a row by a combined 13 points since beating Detroit 17-10 on Nov. 1. Boller has thrown for 481 yards and thrown two TDs with three interceptions this season, but hasn’t played since a 38-10 loss to Minnesota on Oct. 11. Both these teams are bad, but seattle should have a field day on the rams defense. The difference is the offensive play for the seahawks. Take the hawks on the road.
