Strauss: Fisher’s Gambling Streak Pays Off –PD

• Joe Strauss

The Rams played Sunday at Edward Jones Dome and something entertaining broke out.

No, really.

Mayflower’s Team took down the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks by two points because a previously 1-4 bunch played with poise — albeit not always with defensive precision — and their gambler-head coach proved unafraid of his shadow.

‘Mountaineer’ special to Bailey –PD

• By Joe Lyons

Rams receiver Stedman Bailey isn’t likely to forget his first career punt return. And neither will anyone else who watched it Sunday as the Rams defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-26 at the Edward Jones Dome.

With the Rams up 14-3 midway though the second quarter and Seattle punting from its own 49, Rams special teams coordinator John Fassel called for “Mountaineer.’’

“It’s a designed play that we actually put in this week,’’ Bailey explained. “Coach Bones (Fassel) saw the Bears try it a few years back — it worked for them, too, but it was called back on a penalty. He noticed that when (Seattle’s) punter tried to sky it, to pin us deep, the punt always ended up in pretty much the same spot.’’

Rams Notes: Quinn Breaks Out ‘The Bernie’ –PD

• By Jim Thomas

Robert Quinn had gone so long without a sack it looked like he’d forgotten how to do “The Bernie” — his trademark sack dance — after he finally got one midway through the second quarter Sunday.

“It was a full-action Bernie,” Quinn insisted after the Rams hung on for a 28-26 victory over Seattle at the Edward Jones Dome.

Perhaps, but it wasn’t as smooth as usual. Looked a little rusty.

“It’s taken a while,” Quinn said. “Once Aaron (Donald) started it off, we just kind of went from there. But me personally, to get (Russell Wilson) down for the first one of the year, it’s a great feeling. We’ve still got a few more games to go, so hopefully, it won’t be the last one.”

Rams Rewrite the Script, Beat Seattle –PD

• By Jim Thomas

With quarterback Russell Wilson carving up the Rams’ defense with his legs, his arm and his determination, the Seattle Seahawks had nibbled away at what once was an 18-point deficit.

That Rams’ lead had all but disappeared when it came down to a fourth-and-3 play at the St. Louis 18 with 2 minutes, 55 seconds to play. Clinging to a 28-26 lead, out came Johnny Hekker and the Rams’ punting unit. The surging Seahawks were poised to get the ball around their 40. A couple of first downs, and out trots kicker Steven Hauschka to boot the game-winning field goal for the defending Super Bowl champs.

You could almost visualize that finish.
