The St. Louis Rams struck first in a divisional battle against the Seattle Seahawks. Safety Quintin Mikell picked off Tarvaris Jackson, and returned it to the Seahawks' 27-yard line. That was the second Seattle interception of the game, the first being thrown on a trick play by Sidney Rice. Quarterback Sam Bradford hit wide receiver Brandon Lloyd in the end zone for a 30-yard touchdown on second down to give the Rams a 7-0 lead with nine minutes left in the game's opening frame.
Since being acquired by the Rams at the NFL trade deadline, Lloyd has been their top receiver. This is his fourth game since joining St. Louis, and this was his third touchdown catch with the team. The touchdown catch was Lloyd's first of the game, a relief for a team that has struggled in the red zone all season.
