Rams stun Seattle at Seahawks' home

SEATTLE — After making a habit of giving Russell Wilson fits in St. Louis, the Rams ended a decade-long drought in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time since the 2004 playoffs, the Rams left Seattle as winners.

"We've come up here the last three years, and we've come up short. … I'm glad we got the W," St. Louis cornerback Trumaine Johnson said.

Todd Gurley scored on a 2-yard run with 10:34 left and linebacker Akeem Ayers returned a fumble 45 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter to help end Seattle's five-game winning streak.

St. Louis has turned around a season that appeared headed for turmoil at 4-8. The Rams have won three straight, and with a Week 17 win at San Francisco, they can finish 8-8, which would be their first nonlosing season since they had a .500 record in 2006.

"Ultimately we had multiple chances of winning the game," Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett said. "We can't really make any excuses."
