(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer For now, the Seattle Seahawks are perfectly content to keep a lid on an offense being run by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. That's not meant to be a knock on Wilson, who has looked impressive at times and shaky at others in his three NFL starts. But coach Pete Carroll is fearful of committing turnovers. So through the first three weeks, the Seahawks have done their best to not put Wilson in a position to make mistakes. That's meant relying on the running of Marshawn Lynch and Seattle's stout defense, which leads the NFL in giving up just 13 points per game and is second in allowing just 58.7 yards rushing. That's fine by Wilson and his receivers, who remain confident the passing game will be there when needed.

Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams: Week 4 NFL Pick

Seattle Seahawks (2-1) at St. Louis Rams (1-2) I love to exploit home/road discrepancies so the Seahawks are one of my favorite teams to bet. Since 2007, they are 29-14 ATS at home and 14-28 ATS on the road. Riding that trend is the reason why I’ve selected every Seahawks game correctly this year and for significant units as well. Going on the road to St. Louis this week, I plan...
