Seahawks 30, Rams 13

Rams 0 3 3 7 13

SEATTLE — Doug Baldwin picked a national stage to remind the rest of the NFL what they passed up in last April's draft.

Baldwin, an undrafted rookie out of Stanford, blocked a first-quarter punt that was returned by Michael Robinson 17 yards for a touchdown, then caught a 29-yard TD from Tarvaris Jackson in the third quarter as the Seahawks pulled away Monday night to beat the Rams 30-13.

Seattle won its fourth in five games to keep alive slim hopes for reaching the postseason. The Seahawks likely would need to reach 9-7 by winning out.

Marshawn Lynch topped 100 yards rushing for the fifth time in six games, finishing with 115 on 23 carries. He scored on a 16-yard run with 2:57 left, tying a franchise record by scoring a touchdown in his ninth consecutive game.

Baldwin had seven catches for 93 yards.

Sam Bradford started for St. Louis despite a high left ankle sprain that has bothered him for nearly two months.

    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.

    The Bucs woebegone place-kicker, who is in a battle with veteran Nick Folk, went 1-for-4 in field goal tries from 35-40 yards Tuesday on a set of narrow uprights, the first day of full squad Organized Team Activities.

    If that weren’t …
