Rapid Reaction: Seahawks Lock Up Rams And The NFC West Title – Seahawks.com

4. Russell Wilson and the offense bounced back in the second half.

As the Rams have been doing to opposing offenses all season long, they made things challenging on Seattle’s offense in the first half, limiting Seattle to just a pair of field goals while sacking Russell Wilson three times and allowing only six first downs.

In the second half, the Rams defense still made Seattle’s offense work hard for its yardage, but Wilson and company were much more effective, starting with the opening drive of the half that saw Wilson hit David Moore for a 45-yard gain, then later finish the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run.

Seattle’s offense all but put the game on ice with an impressive nine-play, 80-yard fourth-quarter touchdown drive that saw Wilson complete five of five passes for 59 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown to Jacob Hollister.

And while Wilson threw a near-interception early in the game, it’s noteworthy that in a close, low-scoring, the Seahawks did not turn the ball over, something that was a big factor in the Week 10 loss to the Rams.
