Rams 37, Seahawks 20
Two games of handing the ball off to Marshall Faulk makes St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger think his teammate belongs in the Hall of Fame right now.
"They should put him in already, the first active player," Bulger said today after Faulk ran for 183 yards and scored four touchdowns in the Rams' 37-20 victory over Seattle. "He's like Superman out there. I'm just glad he's on our side."
The Rams reached the 30-point mark for the first time this season behind Faulk's fifth career four-touchdown game, as well as another consistent performance from the third-string Bulger.
"Too much Marshall Faulk today," Seahawks Coach Mike Holmgren said. "He got off to a good start, and we had a heck of a time slowing him down."
The defending NFC champions (2-5) have won their last two games after an 0-5 start. Bulger, elevated to the starting job by injuries to Kurt Warner (broken finger) and Jamie Martin (knee), was 22 of 40 for 265 yards and one interception.
