Charlie Whitehurst passed four yards to Mike Williams for a touchdown, and the Seattle Seahawks held a 7-3 lead over the St. Louis Rams in the first half of their battle at Qwest Field today for the NFC West title and a berth in the NFL playoffs.
After the opening kickoff, the Seahawks drove 87 yards in only six plays, with Whitehurst’s 61-yard pass to Ruvell Martin the key play. Whitehurst, making his second career start in place of the injured Matt Hasselbeck, came out firing, completing all five of his passes on the drive for 85 yards.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced just before the game that Whitehurst would indeed start for the Seahawks, but hastened to add that Hasselbeck would be ready to play if the Seahawks needed him.
The Rams came back in the second-quarter with an 83-yard, 13-play drive to a 32-yard field goal by former Seahawk Josh Brown. Rookie quarterback Sam Bradford completed four of seven passes for 51 yards during the drive.
