Thoughts on the St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks following Seattle's 20-13 victory Sunday at CenturyLink Field: What it means: The Seahawks are heading into the playoffs as the fifth-seeded team in the NFC. They will face the winner of the Dallas-Washington game on the road in the wild-card round. This game against the Rams lost its meaning for seeding purposes when San Francisco defeated Arizona. But with Russell Wilson leading a 90-yard drive to the winning touchdown, Seattle moved into the playoffs with an 11-5 record. The 49ers won the NFC West title and will get a first-round bye as the No. 2 seed in the NFC.
