Kellen Clemens had a chance to win the game for the St. Louis Rams on the final play of regulation but fell short as the Seattle Seahawks prevailed in a 14-9 victory on Monday Night Football.
The Rams drove down to the one-yard line and after a stuffed run, St. Louis looked to pass, but an all-out blitz forced Clemens into an errant and incomplete final throw to Brian Quick.
Clemens and the St. Louis offense settled for three Greg Zuerlein field goals, failing to find the end zone all night, despite leading much of the first half. The Rams dominated the time of possession numbers, holding the ball for more than 38 minutes.
Golden Tate caught each of the two touchdowns for Seattle, one set up by short field and the other on an 80-yard bomb which included a 15-yard penalty for Tate’s taunting of the Rams defense.
St. Louis fell to 3-5 and 1-2 inside the division where they were 4-1-1 last year. The Rams host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, with coverage on KTGR at 11 AM.
