Locker Room Buzz: Seattle Seahawks

November, 3, 2013
SEATTLE -- Observed in the locker room after the Seattle Seahawks27-24 overtime victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

'Resilient': Doug Baldwin, who had six receptions and a touchdown, declared, "This is the most resilient team I’ve ever been a part of. It’s the biggest comeback in team history, but we knew we weren’t out of it when it was 21-0."

Wilson rebounds: Russell Wilson after the fourth-quarter interception he threw at the Tampa Bay goal line: “I was mad at myself, but you have to have a short memory as a quarterback. This win was huge. We always believe in ourselves.”

Tate sparks turnaround: Golden Tate on his 71-yard punt return in the second half: “We needed an emotional swing at that point, and I have confidence in myself. I hadn’t helped us much on offense, so I waited for my opportunity and I got it.”

Locker Room Buzz: St. Louis Rams

November, 3, 2013
ST. LOUIS -- Observed in the locker room after the St. Louis Rams' 28-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Pettis not pleased: Rams receiver Austin Pettis looked like he was about to draw a key penalty on Tennessee on the offense's second-to-last play, a penalty that would have put the Rams in position to tie the game late.

Quarterback Kellen Clemens lofted a pass to the front left corner of the end zone from the Titans' 26 with Pettis in double coverage. It appeared Pettis was grabbed on the play but when he looked for a flag after the play, he found nothing.

"I just asked him what the scenario was and if it was a foul and he didn’t agree," Pettis said. "I felt like he kind of held me a little bit. They did it a decent amount but that’s part of the game. Nothing is going to be easy, especially in a situation like that where we’re trying to tie the game obviously the DB is going to do whatever he can to not let you catch the ball and I’m going to do whatever I can to do that."

Miscast: Rams rookie running back Benny Cunningham halted an early drive with a costly fumble on a run that looked like it might go for a touchdown. Cunningham burst through Tennessee's defense for a gain of 6 yards but lost the ball when he got to the 10. He said there was nothing to the fumble. Cunningham said he has a sprained left thumb and was wearing a cast which didn't allow him to grip the ball as tight as he normally would.

Star power: Ty Burrell, star of ABC's hit comedy "Modern Family," attended Sunday's game as a guest of the team. Burrell is a Rams fan from Oregon, who first became a fan through family connections.

Burrell arrived in town earlier in the weekend and went to the walkthrough Saturday, where he got a chance to meet most of the team. He even did an interview with the team's in-house broadcast team on the video boards during Sunday's game.
