Seahawks 20, Rams 13 by the numbers

26—Touchdown passes by Russell Wilson this season, equaling the rookie record set by Peyton Manning in 1998. It's worth noting, however, that Manning attempted 182 more passes that year and threw 28 interceptions, compared to 10 this season by Wilson.

30—Total touchdowns for Wilson, whose fourth rushing touchdown of the season put Seattle ahead in the fourth quarter. Wilson joins Cam Newton as the only rookie quarterbacks to account for 30 total touchdowns. Last season Newton threw 21 touchdowns and rushed for 14 more.

100.0—Passer rating this season for rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. Both he and Robert Griffin III (102.4) became the first rookie QBs to have a 100-plus passer rating. Wilson also established a Seahawks best for that statistical category, besting Matt Hasselbeck's 2005 season (98.2).

6—Sacks allowed by the Seahawks, a season high. The previous high for a Seattle opponent was four by the New York Jets.

140—Tackles this season made by rookie LB Bobby Wagner, breaking Terry Beason's franchise rookie record of 136 set in 1977.

8—Interceptions this season by CB Richard Sherman, tied for second most in the NFL. It's also the most by a Seahawk since Darryl Williams had eight in 1997.

1,590—Rushing yards for Marshawn Lynch, the third most in franchise history behind Shaun Alexander's 2004 (1,696) and 2005 (1,880) seasons.

100—Yards gained by Lynch Sunday, giving him 100 or more yards in 10 games this season. Only Shaun Alexander has more 100-yard games in a season, hitting that mark 11 times in 2005.

15.3—Scoring average of Seahawks opponents this season, giving the Seahawks the No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL. The 245 points Seattle allowed this season were the fewest in franchise history in a full season.

11—Victories by the Seahawks, the third most in team history behind the 13-3 2005 team and the 12-4 1984 team.

8—Wins at home for Seattle this season marking the third time in team history that the Seahawks have gone undefeated at home (2003 and 2005).
