For the second time this season, the Seahawks-Rams matchup was decided in the final minutes with a Josh Brown field goal. The battle between the NFC West frontrunners was as exciting as expected, but defenses ruled this contest as the Ram's offense was kept out of the end zone until the final quarter. With the Rams leading most of the 2nd half, Nate Burleson ran a punt return 90 yards in the 4th quarter to give the 'Hawks a short lived lead. The Rams had a quick answer with a 93 yard march and a Steven Jackson touchdown. A mental mistake on the touchdown play meant that the Rams had to kick off from their 15 yard line. The Seahawks took advantage of their excellent field position to march within easy field goal range. Josh Brown came in after the Seahawk ran 50 seconds off the clock and put the game away 22-2o.
