Instant Reaction: Seahawks Pull Away, Beat Rams 20-6

St. Louis controlled the game early, taking a 6-0 lead into halftime, but Seattle's talent eventually overwhelmed the Rams as they pulled away in the fourth quarter.

Turning Point:

Seattle finally took a lead early in the fourth quarter, and when the Rams tried to respond on their next drive, linebacker Bruce Irvin picked off quarterback Shaun Hill and returned it for a touchdown, sealing the win.

Key Stat:

The Rams offense was dreadful in this game, rushing for only 42 yards on the day and converted on just three of their 12 third down attempts.

Seattle MVP:

Seattle's defense continues to show why they're one of the best in the league, holding the Rams to just 245 total yards and keeping them out of the end zone all game.

St. Louis MVP:

On the flip side, St. Louis' defense kept them in this game, but their offense just couldn't do anything to help them.

What’s Next?

Seattle has now clinched the top seed in the NFC, meaning they'll have home-field advantage through the Super Bowl. St. Louis finishes their season with a 6-10 record, and will look to get healthy this offseason after suffering a multitude of injuries.
