I have two rows:

Row 1: 5 4 3 4 3 4 4 5 4
Row 2: 4 5 5 3 4 4 4 4 3

I need to count the number of occurrences that a value in Row 2 is less than its corresponding column in Row 1.  

In other words, is Row 2/Column A less than Row 1/Column A and so on.

So in this example, the total count would be 3 (columns A, D, I).

ssaqibh has the right approach, but inadvertently counted row 1 being less than row 2. He meant to say:
=SUMPRODUCT(--(A2:I2<A1:I1))
