|Rams Defense Faces Challenge Against Seahawks
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- It's the St. Louis Rams' turn to try to figure how to stop an opponent that has been on a nearly unprecedented scoring binge.
The Seattle Seahawks have averaged 50 points per game in the past three weeks, the most points in a three-week span since the 1950 Los Angeles Rams.
St. Louis is coming off its fourth victory in five games on the strength of five turnovers at Tampa Bay, including four interceptions. The Rams have 17 on the season, ninth best in the league, but are second worst in fumble recoveries with just four.
Defensive end Chris Long said that turnovers do not serve as a prerequisite for a victory, though it would obviously make the task easier against the Seahawks.
