Found November 20, 2011 on 12th Man Rising:
Last week I posted that 12th Man Rising was looking for new Staff Writers. The following article was submitted by Jake, who going to be joining us. I had hoped to get him set up in time for him to post this article himself, but it appears that isn’t going to happen so I’m posting this form him.Without stating the obvious, here are five keys to victory in the upcoming Seahawks game in St. Louis vs. the Rams:1: Win time of possession.This is a lot easier said than done for this Seahawks team. In the 9 games they have played this season they have only won this battle twice, against Dallas and Baltimore, and only by seconds in Dallas. This is achieved, obviously, by running the football effectively, limiting turnovers and penalties, and playing good defense. It will be interesting to see if Marshawn Lynch will get his third straight 100 yard rushing game in light of the injuries to the right side of the line (sigh). Also, in 13 career games, the most against any team in his career, Rams...

Of All Things, Was it Marshawn Lynch’s Juke Cause Ray Lewis’ Toe Injury?

Of all possible ways for Ray Lewis — one of the most ferocious linebackers in NFL history — to get injured, it may have been a juke from Marshawn Lynch that brought him down. Lynch is one of the slowest, least impressive running backs in the NFL. He has very few moves, and he is [...]

5 Reasons the Seahawks Laid a Beatdown on the Rams

With the win Seattle kept their faint playoff hopes alive, but will likely have to win out to snag a Wild Card berth. Marshawn Lynch extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown to six. Sidney Rice had a touchdown reception and made an impressive 55-yard pass to Mike Williams

Seahawks vs. Rams Week 11 Offensive & Defensive Game Balls

After each week of the regular season and possibly during the NFL playoffs should the Seattle Seahawks be so lucky Dave B will stop by and bring you his Seahawks game balls. Balls are awarded to the Seahawks offensive MVP running back Marshawn Lynch, and on defense it goes to defensive end Chris Clemons vs. the St. Louis Rams in Week 11…

3 Things I’m Watching

There are obvious matchups to watch in this game: how well our tackles protect against Chris Long, James Hall, and Robert Quinn (3 pretty good pass rushers); how well Lynch plays against the worst rush defense in the NFL; if our DE’s can finally get some sacks. Those have been covered. These are the 3 things I’ll be watching tomorrow.Seahawks Pass Game vs. The End ZoneSimply...

TV/RADIO: FOX (channel 13 in Seattle) / 710 AM, 97.3 FM What to watch for 1. More history for Marshawn?

Recap: Rams Engulfed By The Seattle Seahawks

The St Louis Rams came into this game riding a small wave of momentum, winning two games and nearly locking up a third in the last three weeks. Steven Jackson had been running as well as he had in any three-game span of his career during that span, cracking the 125 yard mark in all three contests. Naturally, Josh McDaniels did a little self-scouting on the Rams and made the logical...

Seahawks-Rams Preview: 3 Things To Watch

Will Brandon Lloyd make 300 receiving yards? Will the Rams eat Marshawn Lynch's dust like the Cowboys and the Ravens did? Will the Seahawks' defensive holes give the Rams a way in?

LeGarrette Blount runs through everyone en route to the endzone

The Green Bay Packers can't claim that they didn't have a fair chance to tackle LeGarrette Blount on this one. At least half the defense had their paws on him, and a few of them even got to slow dance with him. Blount kept grinding, though. That's lower body strength for days, and heart for weeks. That's arguably the best run we've seen in the NFL since Marshawn...

St. Louis Rams (2-7) vs. Seattle Seahawks (3-6)

The St. Louis Rams are on a roll all of a sudden, winning two of their last three games while outscoring their opponents 57-52.  The Seahawks won last weekend 22-17 over the Ravens in Seattle, so they could be in for a letdown.  The Seahawks are 1-4 on the road this year, where they have been outscored 111-69.  Here is a look at the matchups in this game: When the Rams have the...

Seattle Seahawks 24, St. Louis Rams 7

Keys to the game: Seahawks at Rams

Three keys to Seahawks victory 1. Keep on trucking.In the past two games, Marshawn Lynch has had his two best regular-season rushing totals as a Seahawk. Even with Seattle losing rookie linemen John Moffitt and James Carpenter to season-ending knee injuries, the Seahawks have to start out trying to get traction on the ground against a Rams defense allowing the most rushing yards...
