Robert Quinn and Chris Long each had three sacks.

Too bad the St. Louis Rams' defensive ends couldn't celebrate after the game, too.

Coach Jeff Fisher wasn't placing blame on backup quarterback Kellen Clemens a day after the Rams (3-5) were held to three field goals and were thwarted at the 1 at the end of a 14-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night.

Clemens will make his second straight start this week against the Tennessee Titans in place of Sam Bradford, out for the season with a left knee injury.

The defense was dominant against Seattle.

Marshawn Lynch had just eight carries and the Seahawks were 2 for 11 on third down with 135 total yards.
