Seattle Seahawks Take Touchdown Lead After Charlie Whitehurst Stalls

Charlie Whitehurst has been solid at quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, but the team’s red zone woes continue against the St. Louis Rams. In a game where scoring has been at a premium, neither the Rams of Seahawks have found the end zone since the first possession of the game. The Seahawks, using good field position to start the drive, just hit another field goal to boost their cushion back to a touchdown, 13-6.

Whitehurst continues to plod away, throwing for 183 yards and a touchdown. Most importantly, he’s yet to turn the ball over. The only turnover of the game came when Marshawn Lynch was stripped while fighting for extra yards. Lynch and Forsett finally found a running game, rushing for a combined 70 yards.

St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford has solid, but hasn’t gotten any help from his receivers. Drops, tipped passes and costly mistakes have burned the Rams, preventing big plays all night long. Thus far, Bradford has thrown for 127 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. Drop after drop on third down has allowed the Seahawks to get off the field as the Seattle defense continues to hold.

With 10 minutes to go and the 12th man fired up, the Seahawks lead the Rams, 13-6.
