Originally written on Seahawk Addicts  |  Last updated 11/8/14
It was a long, difficult road to victory.  But in the end, the 2012 Seahawks did what they do best - win.  The Seahawks fought hard from a 10-3 deficit in the first half and rallied to beat the St. Louis Rams in their final game of the regular season, 20-13. The victory was capped off by a game-winning interception from the man of the hour, Richard Sherman, as the Rams marched into Seattle territory with less than a minute to play.  This was an ego-check game for the Seahawks. They ruthlessly stomped on their last three opponents, as we know, scoring 150 points total and only allowing 30. The Rams, who have been flying largely under the radar this year, came into CenturyLink Field today without any playoff hopes, but still played extremely tough. They sacked Russell Wilson seven times, taking advantage of bad one-on-one matchups in the trenches. DE Robert Quinn gave Russell Okung and JR Sweezy all kinds of trouble, with John Moffitt sadly sitting out another game. The team hopes to have him back in the lineup when they travel to Washington DC next weekend for their first-round playoff game against the Redskins.  Wilson, despite taking more of a beating than he's been used to through this point, completed an impressive 15-of-19 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown pass to Michael Robinson. He also added another rushing TD to make the score 20-13 in the fourth quarter, just before Richard Sherman sealed the game with his interception of Sam Bradford on the following drive.  But as I've said before, good teams win ugly sometimes. Victory in the NFL is not always pretty - sometimes it's a dirty, ugly, uncoordinated bonanza of trial-and-error; a frustrating display of failed scoring attempts and botched plays. It happens. It can always happen to any team, on any given Sunday.  Despite all of that happening at least once throughout the course of this game -- at a significant cost against my nerves and vocal chords -- the Seahawks won, and won ugly they did. They are 11-5 in the 2012 regular season and headed to the playoffs. Now, the questions arise: How will this defense stop Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins?  Will Russell Wilson be able to continue his magic on the road? Can Beast Mode bust out against a surprisingly stout Redskins run defense? Will the Seahawks' pass rush show up against a shaky Redskins offensive line?  We'll find out these answers soon enough. But as it stands now, it's pretty hard to be disappointed by anything the Seattle Seahawks have accomplished this year.
