Seahawks Soar into Playoffs with 20-13 Win Over Rams

The Seattle Seahawks beat the St. Louis Rams 20-13 last night to secure the number 5 seed for the NFC playoffs and finish their season as the the only team to be undefeated (8-0) at home this season. Although the Cardinals (5-11-0) would have had to upset the 49ers (11-4-1) in order for this win to affect the Seahawks playoff position, it did give the Seahawks their 11th win of the season, the most since their 13-3 record in 2005. Compared to Seattle's last three blowout games, this match-up was a relatively low-scoring affair in which the Rams stout defense held the Seahawks to only one field goal in the first half. Neither team scored in the first quarter and the Seahawks trailed the Rams 3-7 at the halftime break. The Seahawks finally took the lead in the third quarter, when QB Russell Wilson found FB Michael Robinson with a 10-yard touchdown pass. That touchdown pass also gave Wilson his 26th touchdown pass of his rookie season, tying Peyton Manning's rookie season record. After the Rams tied the game 13-13 in the fourth quarter, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led his team on a 90-yard drive towards the Rams end zone, including a beautifully placed 44-yard pass to WR Golden Tate. Several plays later, Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch appeared to score a touchdown, but it was overturned on review. After finding no open receivers on the next play, Wilson made a short 1-yard run into the end zone, giving Seattle the lead at 20-13. As star rookie QB Russell Wilson leads the Seahawks into the playoffs, now is a great time to start planning your Seahawks season for next year.
