Seahawks remain in playoff groove
SEATTLE — In case the recent blowouts clouded the memory, Seattle rookie Russell Wilson can still put together a fourth-quarter, winning drive.
That came after he put his name alongside Peyton Manning's in the NFL record book.
Wilson tied 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 victory over the Rams and an 8-0 home mark.
"To tie that record is really something special," Wilson said. "It's a tribute to my faith and all God has put me through, but also to my team and what they've done."
Seattle settled for a wild card after San Francisco clinched the NFC West by defeating Arizona.
Still, the Seahawks ended up as the only undefeated team at home. And they've won seven of eight, including a five-game winning streak to close the season.
Wilson's 10-yard touchdown to Michael Robinson in the third quarter pulled him even with Manning for the rookie TD record.
