NFL Playoff Picture: Seattle Seahawks Keep Faint Postseason Hopes Alive

The Seattle Seahawks are somehow still alive for that final playoff spot in the NFC. They have less than one percent chance of a chance of landing that spot.

The Seahawks, now 6-7, have to catch up to at least three of these teams: The 7-6 Chicago Bears, the 7-6 Dallas Cowboys and 7-6 New York Giants, the 8-5 Atlanta Falcons, and the 8-5 Detroit Lions. One of the Cowboys or Giants have to win the NFC East. The Falcons seem to be the team in best shape with home games against Tampa Bay and Jacksonville. So the Lions and the Bears are the teams that will have to slip. With Detroit playing Oakland, San Diego and Green Bay and Chicago playing Seattle, Green Bay and Minnesota, Seattle will need some unusual defeats and slip-ups from these teams to get a wild-card spot.

Seattle must of course win their final three games. They have to beat the Bears in Chicago, San Francisco at home, and Arizona in Glendale. Ruh-roh. All of those wins aren't gimmees, and the Seahawks will have to bring their A-game to each matchup.

Seahawks Vs. Rams Final Score: Marshawn Lynch Leads Seattle To 30-13 Victory

The Seattle Seahawks hosted the St. Louis Rams as the Week 14 matchup for Monday Night Football. The game wasn't terribly pretty for either team's offense, but in the end the Seahawks walked away with a decisive 30-13 victory.

Seattle opened the scoring in the first quarter after Michael Robinson scored a touchdown on a blocked punt. Following that 7-0 score, the Seahawks never relinquished the lead for the remainder of the game.

Several times, the Rams found themselves with the ball on first-and-goal situations from the one-yard line. Thanks to strong goal line defense from Seattle and terrible passing and catching (or lack thereof) from Sam Bradford and the Rams offense, St. Louis only managed to score one touchdown in the entire game, on a one yard run from Steven Jackson in the fourth quarter. Following that touchdown, the Rams whiffed on an onside kick attempt when the ball stalled out after only traveling nine yards. The Rams were simply unable to catch any sort of offensive break in addition to their being hampered by sloppy play all night.

Running back Marshawn Lynch was the star of the evening for the Seahawks, He finished the night with 115 yards on 23 carries. He picked up eight receiving yards and even managed to have two passing opportunities, although he did not record a completion. Lynch scored on a 16 yard touchdown run with 3:03 left in the game to put it away for good.

Seahawks Vs. Rams Score Update: Leon Washington, Doug Baldwin Spur Seattle To 20-6 Lead In Fourth Quarter

The Seattle Seahawks are hosting the St. Louis Rams for the Week 14 matchup on Monday Night Football. Although the Seattle offense hasn't been able to consistently find the end zone, they have done an excellent job of setting the pace in the game thus far. Heading into the final quarter, Seattle holds a 20-6 lead.

The Seahawks had a tough pass interference penalty called against them which resulted in a goal line standin the waning minutes of the third quarter. The Seahawks made that set of downs interesting with a stop and an assist from Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, who got called for intentional grounding on a pass to no one in the end zone. First and goal turned into a 29 yard field goal thanks to strong Seattle defense and Rams offensive miscues. That enabled the Rams to close the gap a bit to 13-6.

Tarvaris Jackson led the Seahawks on a spirited 50 yard drive following a terrific Leon Washington return on the kickoff with under 2:00 in the quarter.

Jackson hooked up with Doug Baldwin on a 29 yard touchdown pass with just 0:14 left in the quarter.

Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch has been dazzling in the game, pulling off amazing runs replete with spin moves and requiring multiple St. Louis defenders to wrestle him to the ground. Although the Seahawks offense hasn't come together quite as well as they'd hoped in this game, the Rams have been squandering the few opportunities they've had.

Seahawks Vs. Rams Score Update: Michael Robinson And Seattle Take 10-3 Lead Into Halftime

The Seattle Seahawks are playing in front of their first national television audience since 2007 as they host the St. Louis Rams for Monday Night Football. Through the first half of play, the Seahawks are holding on to a 10-3 lead.

The Seahawks looked to be off to a dominating start in the first quarter. The first offensive possession by the Rams ended in a blocked punt that Michael Robinson grabbed up and ran in for a touchdown to get the scoring started. Steven Hauschka later added a 42 yard field goal to give the Seahawks a 10-0 first quarter lead.

Inconsistency was the story for both offenses in the second quarter. Both Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and St, Louis quarterback Sam Bradford bounced a couple of pass attempts, adding to the frustration of receivers and safeties on both sides who keep dropping or missing easy catches.

The Rams were able to get on the board in the second quarter on a 46 yard field goal by Josh Brown.

Both teams are exhibiting aggressive play by their defense. In addition to the blocked punt, the Seahawks delivered a huge hit to quarterback Sam Bradford in the first quarter. Initially, it looked as if Bradford may have been injured on the play, but he returned to the game on the following possession.

VIDEO: Doug Baldwin Punt Block Gives Seahawks Early Lead Over Rams

The Monday Night Football matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the St. Louis Rams is still in the first quarter, but there's already been at least one spectacular play by the Seattle special teams.

After Seattle had halted a Rams drive, St. Louis set up to punt. The Rams offensive line collapsed, leaving punter Donnie Jones swarmed by Seahawks defenders. Doug Baldwin jumped towards Jones and the punt ended up going directly into Jones' midsection. The ball bounced toward the St. Louis end zone and Michael Robinson scooped it up, returning it 17 yards for an easy touchdown. The play ended with the Seahawks taking an early 1-0 lead.

You can see the video for yourself right here:

The Seahawks are hoping to see more sloppy plays from the Rams and jump out to a big lead. They still have a shot at making the postseason.

Sam Bradford Injury Update: Rams QB Active, Will Start Vs. Seahawks

The St. Louis Rams have very little to play for with a 2-10 record. But they're sure not messing around tonight on Monday Night Football. Sam Bradford will be back in action, as he's been activated for tonight's game and will start. Bradford will be backed up by Kellen Clemens.

The Rams probably need Bradford back in action to have a realistic chance to win in Seattle. The Rams have struggled on offense without Bradford in the lineup, getting totally shut down by San Francisco last weekend. It's not like Bradford has had a great season--his worst performance actually came against the Seahawks at home, completing half his passes and averaging a feeble 4.5 passing yards per attempt. But this Monday Night game gives him a big opportunity to try and right the ship and prove that St. Louis should trust in him to steer things back in a positive direction.

Seahawks Vs Rams: Seahawks' David Hawthorne Likely To Play With Sore Knee

According to an Associated Press report, Seattle Seahawks linebacker David Hawthorne practiced on Saturday and looks like he'll play tonight against the St. Louis Rams on Monday Night Football, even though he's still listed as questionable on the injury report. Hawthorne missed practice on Friday as he nursed a sore knee,

Hawthorne tore his MCL in his left knee during the second game of the preseason and missed the final two preseason games and the season opener against the San Francisco 49ers. But Hawthorne has played through the pain for the rest of the season, including recording a team-high six tackles and a 77-yard interception return for a touchdown in last Thursday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, which earned Hawthorne the NFC Defensive Player of the Week honor for the first time in his four-year career.

Hawthorne has recorded 78 tackles, three interceptions and one sack this season.

Seahawks Vs. Rams: Seattle Makes Their Return To Monday Night Football

The Seattle Seahawks are preparing for their big prime-time showdown against the St. Louis Rams on Monday night. Although the matchup doesn't have a lot of broad national appeal (and in fact is being pegged by many to be one of the lowest-rated Monday night games in some time), the Seattle crowd is sure to be nice and loud at CenturyLink Field.

As Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times points out, this is the first time that the Seahawks will appear on Monday Night Football since shutting out the San Francisco 49ers in 2007 by a final score of 24-0.

Things have certainly changed a bit in the intervening four seasons since then, but the hometown faithful are sure to be rooting with all their might during their brief time in the spotlight. The Seahawks are heavy favorites, having just beaten the Rams a few weeks ago. If they game gets off to a good start for the home team, they may be able to put on a show for the national crowd and prove that football is still alive and well in the Northwest.

NFL Playoff Picture: Seahawks Still Have Chance Of Making The Postseason

The NFL season is hurtling into the final few weeks of the season. Following some unexpected shake-ups in Week 14, the playoff picture is looking just a bit more murky than it did a week or two ago.

This could potentially bode well for the Seattle Seahawks. They're gearing up for their Monday Night Football matchup against the St. Louis Rams, which is a game that the Seahawks are heavily favored to win. If they come away with the victory, they'll hold a 6-7 record, which would tie them with the Arizona Cardinals and slot both teams directly behind the 7-6 Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys.

Six teams from each conference will advance to the postseason. The strategy for the Seahawks for the remainder of the season is simple: win. They have a chance to move neck-and-neck with the Bears as they travel to Chicago next Sunday. After that is a game against the 49ers that will be challenging, but not impossible. They'll finish the season facing off against the Cardinals.

It seems like a bit of a tall order at the moment and strange considering the awful start they had in 2011, but if the Seahawks win their last four games, they will hold a 9-7 record. Pair that with some losses for Dallas and Chicago, and the Seahawks could potentially luck into the playoffs even if they happen to drop their game against the 49ers.

Seahawks Vs Rams Injury Update: David Hawthorne Sits, Tarvaris Jackson Practices Fully

Good news for Seahawks fans out of the VMAC Friday afternoon, as starting QB Tarvaris Jackson practiced in full. Jackson has been severely limited in prior weeks while playing through a strained pectoral muscle, but it's looking like that injury is healing nicely. With Jackson a full-go, the Seahawks should have a competitive advantage over the still Sam Bradford-less Rams, who had QBs Tom Bradstater and Kellen Clemons splitting reps in practice Friday. 

Linebacker David Hawthorne and defensive end Raheem Brock both sat out of practice Friday. As John Boyle reports, Hawthorne played through a sore knee in last Thursday's game against the Eagles and was less than full-speed, and has missed the last two practices. Brock has an injured calf, and at this point both of their availabilities are unknown. 

Cornerback Kennard Cox was limited and fellow corner Byron Maxwell was a full-go. Both players are special teams' contributors.

Seahawks Vs. Rams: Sam Bradford Sits Out, Still May Play

Rams starting QB and 1st Overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Sam Bradford, sat out of St. Louis' practice again on Friday, resting a bum ankle and hoping to get to a point where he can play in Monday's matchup against the Seahawks. In his place, backups Tom Bradstater and recently acquired Kellen Clemons split first-team reps. 

Per the Turf Show Times: 

Bradford is still dealing with his ankle injury, re-aggravated in a recent loss to the Cardinals on a rollout. Whether or not Bradford can start Monday night remains to be seen, but it doesn't look good at this point.

Josh McDaniels sounded an optimistic note on Bradford's availability for the game. He also noted that if Bradford could not play, the playbook would have to be dumbed down a little bit.

Still pretty up in the air for Bradford, but the Rams are lucky in that they have an extra day to get him healthy.

Seahawks vs. Rams Injury Report: Tarvaris Jackson Continues To Practice

The Seattle Seahawks have played much better football in recent weeks and the team cannot afford a hiccup in the final month if they hope to make a late-season playoff run. With the struggling St. Louis Rams coming to town for Monday Night Football, it is an opportune time for Seattle to take advantage and continue to make way in the wild card standings. 

Here is the full practice report from Thursday:

Seahawks:

Did Not Participate In Practice: DE Raheem Brock (calf), LB David Hawthorne (knee)

Limited Participation: CB Kennard Cox (hamstring), CB Byron Maxwell (sickness)

Full Participation: QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral)

Did Not Participate In Practice: QB Sam Bradford (ankle), QB A.J. Feeley (right thumb), DE Chris Long (ankle), RB Quinn Porter (abdomen), DT Fred Robbins (back)

Limited Participation: T Mark LeVoir (chest), DE Eugene Sims (ankle)

---

The big news for the Seahawks is that starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson appears to be close to 100% from an injured pectoral muscle and will likely play on Monday. For the Rams, Sam Bradford continues to miss practices, although he has played in each of the last three weeks with a sprained ankle.

Seahawks LB David Hawthorne Earns NFC Defensive Player of the Week Award

Linebacker David Hawthorne had himself a great game for the Seattle Seahawks in their 31-14 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, so much so that he garnered the NFC defensive player of the week award, the first time in his career he has received the honor.

Hawthorne finished the game tied with Leroy Hill with a team-high six tackles, as well as a interception off of Vince Young intended for running back LeSean McCoy, eventually retuning it 77 yards to the house for a touchdown.

Hawthorne becomes the second Seahawk defender in past few weeks to receive the award as defensive end Chris Clemons won defensive player of the week for his work against the St. Louis Rams, finishing with three sacks and two forced fumbles during the game.
