SEATTLE — Cam Akers rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown, Darious Williams returned Russell Wilson’s interception 42 yards for a score, and the Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks 30-20 in the NFC wild-card playoff game.

The best defense in the league during the regular season carried its dominance into the playoffs. No team was better at limiting yards or points than the Rams and they continued to torment Wilson and the Seahawks. 

The Rams pulled off the upset without a healthy quarterback after John Wolford was injured in the first quarter. Jared Goff and his injured thumb took over and capped the win with a late TD pass to Robert Woods.
