SEAHAWKS TAKE DIVISION
Tue, 04 Jan 2011 04:23 PM EST

The Seattle Seahawks accomplished a number of feats when they crushed the hopes of the St. Louis Rams in their game on Sunday. With both teams sitting atop the NFC North, each with a dismal 7-9, it was the division records that determined their fate in the end. What was bizarre about this game is that Seattle made it into the postseason and won the division with a losing record. That marks the first time in NFL history that a team has done so. Although the accomplishment might be laughable, Seattle remains grateful for the chance they earned. As Seahawks’s safety Lawyer Milloy said, “there is no apologies for making it into the playoffs.”

The win also marked the team’s first division title since 2007. While the Hawks did come through with a solid game, they will have to really focus when it comes to playing the defending Super Bowl champions come Saturday night. Luckily, they will be playing at home. What many are wondering is who will play as QB. Backup QB Charlie Whitehurst did a decent job filling for Matt Hasselbeck in his second ever career start, delivering 19 of 36 for 199 yards and a 4-yard TD pass. He was not outstanding but he didn’t make any critical mistakes. Two more players that also did well were Marshawn Lynch, who rushed for 75 yards on 20 carries in one of his better games of the season, and Ruvell Martin, who more than doubled his receiving total with three receptions for 85 yards. Overall, Seattle’s running game showed up when it was needed next to a defense that was as good as it has been all year. Losing record or not, it was a significant win for the Seahawks.

Frustration was more than present on St. Louis’ side throughout and after the game. After coming so close to a playoff spot, the Rams blew it with a practically non-existent offense and a few costly plays. Still, the team has come far from the 1-15 record they finished with last year. Follow all your favorite NFL teams at www.scoresandodds.com, home of the best betting information on the Net.
