Silver linings: Rams at Seahawks

12/13/2011

The facts: The St. Louis Rams fell to 2-11 with a 30-13 road defeat to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14.

The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.

  • Steven Jackson scored his 52nd career rushing touchdown, leaving him four shy of Eric Dickerson's franchise record. Jackson also moved past Henry Ellard on the Rams' career list for all-purpose yardage. His 50-yard reception was a career long.

  • Brandon Lloyd averaged 16.4 yards per reception. His longest gain covered 37 yards.

  • Rookie tight end Lance Kendricks had a 26-yard reception early in the game.

  • Jerious Norwood's 47-yard kickoff return was a season long for the Rams.

  • Gary Gibson and C.J. Ah You recorded sacks, while Brady Poppinga recovered a fumble.

  • Quarterback Sam Bradford, though sore afterward, did not appear to aggravate his ankle injury. Chris Long also made it through the game despite an ankle injury.

  • The Rams' defense kept the team in the game through three quarters.

Looking ahead: The Rams return home to face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15.
