Russell Wilson added to his case for NFL Rookie of the Year, completing 15-of-19 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for the game-winning score to lift the Seattle Seahawks to a 20-13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

Wilson’s touchdown pass tied Peyton Manning’s rookie record for passing
touchdowns in a season with 26.

Marshawn Lynch carried the ball 18 times for 100 yards, Golden Tate caught
three passes for 105 yards and Michael Robinson hauled in three passes for 33
yards and score for the Seahawks (11-5), who locked up the NFC’s fifth seed in
the upcoming playoffs. Seattle will play the winner of Washington and Dallas
next weekend in the Wild Card round.

The Seahawks won 11 games for the first time since going 13-3 in 2005.

Sam Bradford was 25-for-42 passing for 252 yards, one touchdown and one
interception for the Rams (7-8-1), who haven’t made the playoffs since 2004.
