In a nutshell: 0-0. No points, but a lot of action as the Seahawks drove to the Rams’ 28- and 42-yard lines on their two first quarter possessions, only to go the wrong way after that because of three sacks of Russell Wilson and a pass interference penalty.
Player of the quarter: Chris Clemons. The Seahawks’ Leo end was very active in the first 15 minutes. On the Rams’ first possession, Clemons stopped Steven Jackson for a 2-yard gain on first-and-10 and then hit QB Sam Bradford as he was throwing on third down to force an incompletion. On their second possession, Clemons stopped Jackson for no gain on second down to help force another punt and a three-and-out for the Rams.
Play of the quarter: The Seahawks scored a touchdown on Wilson’s 28-yard pass to tight end Zach Miller. But a pass interference penalty on No. 2 tight end Anthony McCoy nullified the score and forced the Seahawks to punt after Wilson was sacked on two of the next three plays.
Number of the quarter: 0. After putting up 58, 50 and 42 the past three games, the Seahawks went scoreless.
