With a chance to clinch the NFC West title, the Seattle Seahawks trail the St. Louis Rams at halftime, 7-3, at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

Neither offense has been able to do much, as St. Louis outgained Seattle, 158-123, in the first 30 minutes. The Rams had eight first downs, compared to the Seahawks' seven. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson completed 7-of-9 passes for 73 yards, and St. Louis's Sam Bradford was 14-of-21 for 139 yards and a touchdown.

The Seahawks (10-5) opened the scoring with a 43-yard field goal from Steven Hauschka, capping off a 17-yard drive that began at the Rams' 42. St. Louis (7-7-1) responded on its next drive, marching 76 yards in eight plays. Bradford threw a two-yard touchdown pass over the middle to Austin Pettis to put the Rams on top.

Seattle has already wrapped up a playoff berth, but the Seahawks can claim the NFC West title with a win against the Rams and a San Francisco 49ers loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The 49ers lead the Cardinals at halftime in San Francisco, 7-6.
