Rams vs. Seahawks, Week 17: Seattle wins without dominating

USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks played well enough to top the St. Louis Rams on Sunday and Seattle fans are just fine with that.

After spoiling fans with impressive wins in the last month, the Seattle Seahawks got a victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday without dominating.

Seattle needed a 1-yard rushing score by quarterback Russell Wilson to finish off the Rams, despite winning its past three games in blowout fashion. Wilson was efficient with 250 passing yards and a touchdown on 15-of-19 passing, while producing a score and 58 yards on the ground.

One likely cause for the Seahawks' inconsistent play at times on Sunday was the amount of penalty flags thrown. Seattle accounted for 10 of the game's 24 penalties, which totaled 178 yards between the two teams.

Heading into the playoffs, the Seahawks occupy the No. 5 seed after the San Francisco 49ers clinched the NFC West. Seattle will take on the Washington Redskins, who boast their own exciting rookie quarterback.

According to Field Gulls, regardless of their playoff results, the Seahawks certainly had a successful regular season:

It's been a hell of a regular season, you guys. This team is at least one, maybe two years ahead of schedule and are certainly a squad that no one wants to face.
