Seahawks Open 34th Season at Home Against Rams


The Seahawks open the 2009 season with the first of two division games,
this week facing the St. Louis Rams at home. Kickoff is slated for 1:15
pm and the

game will be televised on FOX (channel 13 in Seattle) and broadcast on
News Talk 97.3 KIRO FM and on 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle.


It will be the 22nd regular season meeting between the two clubs and
15th since joining the NFC West in 2002. Seattle leads the series, 12-9.
The Seahawks

have won 10 of the last 13 meetings and are in the midst of an
eight-game winning streak since 2005 after losing three in a row to the
Rams (2003-04).

The eight-game streak is the longest-ever for Seattle vs. an opponent. 


Last season, the Seahawks won handily in Seattle, 37-13, on September
21, and used a game-ending drive and Olindo Mare field goal as time
expired in St.

Louis on December 14, to win, 23-20.


Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is on the verge of overtaking Dave Krieg on
many of Seattle's record lists. He needs 258 attempts, 97 completions
and 2,728

yards to pass Krieg as Seattle's all-time gun-slinger.  Newly acquired
running back Edgerrin James needs 554 scrimmage yards to become the 10th

in NFL history with 16,000 scrimmage yards.
