Recap


Seahawks 20, Rams 13:
Russell Wilson passed for 250 yards and a touchdown and scored the winning touchdown with a 1-yard run as Seattle finished undefeated at home and ended the regular season on a five-game win streak. 

Wilson tied Peyton Manning for the rookie record with his 26th touchdown pass, a 10-yard toss to Michael Robinson that gave Seattle (11-5) a 13-10 lead with 2:09 left in the third quarter, and he drove the Seahawks 90 yards in 10 plays and scrambled for the go-ahead score with 1:39 left.

The win didn't end up affecting Seattle's playoff seeding, as San Francisco won Sunday to clinch the NFC West title and lock the Seahawks into the No. 5 seed. Seattle will travel to face Washington in the first round next week. 

The Rams (7-8-1) drove to the Seattle 29-yard line in the final minute, but Richard Sherman - who had his suspension for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs overturned on appeal Thursday - intercepted a Sam Bradford pass to the end zone to seal it. 

Bradford was 25-of-42 for 252 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He finished the season with 3,702 passing yards, surpassing his previous career high of 3,512 set in 2010. 

GAME NOTEBOOK: Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 100 yards on 18 carries. His 10 100-yard games tied Vikings RB Adrian Peterson for the most in the NFL this season. … Rams RB Steven Jackson rushed for 52 yards on 11 carries to become the sixth NFL player with eight consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. … Seahawks WR Golden Tate caught three passes for a career-high 105 yards.
