Seahawks vs. Rams final score: Seattle escapes with ugly but huge win

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

We break down a crazy finish in St. Louis as the Seahawks escaped with a huge win over the Rams.

The Seattle Seahawks escaped St. Louis Monday night with an ugly but huge win in Week 8. The Seahawks won by a final score of 14-9, putting together a huge stop on fourth and goal as time expired. We don't normally do an individual game recap for non-49ers games, but given the importance of this game, it seems reasonable. Well, that and the fact that the game thread blew up just a little bit.

The Seahawks improve to 7-1, while the Rams drop to 3-5. For 49ers fans, it was a disappointing end to a game that had a chance to move San Francisco into a tie for first. Add in the NFC West implications later this year, and the opportunity just barely slipped through. Such is life.

This game was primarily about the Seahawks offensive struggles, and the Rams offense stumbling on every opportunity. The Seahawks defense did make some big plays, but the Rams did all they could to hand this game to Seattle. Kellen Clemens threw a pair of interceptions that were truly hideous. The first was a miscommunication with Jared Cook, and the second was an ugly overthrow.

The Seahawks head home to face the Bucs in Week 9, while the Rams head home to face the Titans. I don't think the Bucs will hang nearly as close with the Seahawks.
