Seahawks 20, Rams 13

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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.
