Wilson leads Seattle past St. Louis 20-13

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Russell Wilson tied Peyton Manning's record for most touchdown passes by a rookie with 26, and his 1-yard TD run with 1:39 left gave Seattle a 20-13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday and an 8-0 home mark for the Seahawks.

 

Seattle (11-5) entered the day with hopes of still winning the NFC West and getting a home playoff game, but those dreams were dashed when San Francisco beat Arizona 27-13 to clinch the division. Seattle will be the No. 5 seed in the NFC and face the NFC East champion - either Washington or Dallas - in the opening round next weekend.

 

Seattle finished as the only unbeaten team at home in the NFL.

 

St. Louis' defensive effort didn't make it easy for Seattle. The Rams (7-8-1) sacked Wilson six times, but couldn't do enough offensively to finish with their first winning record since 2003.
