The toughest part of Joe Jurevicius' biggest day in the NFL had nothing to do with filling in as a starting wide receiver for the Seahawks. It was the bus ride past the hospital in St. Louis where his son died that was tough to take.

Jurevicius caught a career-best nine passes for 137 yards and a touchdown in the win. On the way to the game, the Seahawks drove past the hospital where Jurevicius's son, Michael William, died of a neurodegenerative disease in 2003.

And the memories flooded back.

"This is a hard place for me to play," said Jurevicius, who helped the Buccaneers beat the Raiders in the Super Bowl a few weeks before his son died.

Jurevicius -- who vaulted to the top of Seattle's depth chart because of injuries to Darrell Jackson and Bobby Engram -- had his son in mind when he scored. "On my touchdown, I wrote a little 'M' in the grass and threw the ball up to him," he said. "So psychologically, I've been through worse but it's rewarding."

Rams Coach Mike Martz was on the sideline calling plays after missing two practices last week while undergoing tests for a bacterial infection of a heart valve, and began taking antibiotics Friday.
