Balzer: Front four put big pressure on Luck

(KSDK Sports) -- Luck had three interceptions and backup Matt Hasselbeck one, with three coming in the red zone. The Rams had another three sacks, all by defensive ends Robert Quinn (two) and Chris long (one).

Most of the Rams' pressure came from their front four without blitzing.

Said Fisher, "It showed in the first half when they were in the hurry up, but they were play-action passing with basic offensive personnel, just for protection. And we made some adjustments and still got there. We put really good pressure on him (Luck). He's an outstanding quarterback. It was a tough week for the whole defensive staff watching him play."

As for the success in the red zone, Fisher reiterated, "Pressure. I think pressure. When the lead gets to where it is they can't settle for threes. So, they're trying to force a ball in there."
