Seahawks 23 - Rams 20

Nothing has been easy nor pretty this season for the Seahawks and that trait continued as the Seahawks come from behind to beat the Rams for the 8th straight time.

It wasn't pretty but the Seahawks came from behind to beat the St. Louis Rams for the 8th straight time. The Seahawks (3-11) perhaps conceded a better draft position to the Rams (2-12) and move out of the basement of the NFC West into third place. Seneca Wallace (15/25, 226 yards) was under duress for most of the game as the Rams often sent DB's in on blitzing schemes to slow the speedy quarterback.

Trailing the Rams 20-13 in the fourth quarter, The Seahawks scored on a 1-yard touchdown by T.J. Duckett to tie the game. After a three-and-out by the Rams, Wallace found WR Deion Branch for a big gain placing the Seahawks within a chip-shot field goal to win the game with time running out. Olindo Mare, one of the more solid players this season for the Seahawks was 2/2 including one from 50 yards and the game winner as time expired.

Maurice Morris had a solid day running for 86 yards. TE John Carlson was once again a favorite target with 76 yards on the day.

The Seahawks will be home next Sunday for Mike Holmgren's final game as head coach. Mike faces his former prodigy Brett Favre when the Jets come to town.
