Recap


Rams 19, Seahawks 13: Danny Amendola caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from punter Johnny Hekker on a fake field-goal attempt and rookie Greg Zeurlein kicked four field goals, including a franchise-record 60-yarder, as St. Louis posted a rare victory over NFC West-rival Seattle.

Trailing 7-3 with less than two minutes remaining in the first half, the Rams (2-2) were faced with 4th-and-goal at the Seattle 2 and lined up for a field-goal try. But Hekker caught the Seahawks by surprise as he tossed the ball to Amendola alone on the right side of the end zone to give St. Louis a lead it never relinquished.

Zeurlein, who eclipsed Jeff Wilkins' club record with a 58-yard field goal in the first quarter, broke his own mark early in the third with a 60-yarder that provided the Rams a 16-7 advantage. Wilkins booted a 57-yard field goal in 1998.

Seattle, which benefited from a horrendous call by replacement officials on the final play of the game on Monday night to post a victory over Green Bay, was within six points as it drove downfield late in the fourth quarter. But Bradley Fletcher intercepted a pass at the Rams' 23 with one minute remaining to seal the win.

Sam Bradford completed 16 of 30 passes for 221 yards with one interception and Amendola had six catches for 55 yards for St. Louis, which halted a four-game skid against Seattle and defeated the Seahawks for only the second time in 15 tries.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Zuerlein is a perfect 12-for-12 on field-goal attempts this season. ... Seattle rookie QB Russell Wilson was 17 of 25 for 160 yards and threw three interceptions. ... Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch gained 118 yards on 20 carries, including an 18-yard touchdown run less than five minutes into the game.
