Seahawks Top Vikings in Monday Night Showdown

How Rams can take over No. 6 seed on Sunday after Vikings' loss

How Rams can take over No. 6 seed on Sunday after Vikings' loss

Still, with this National Football League season also reminding us of the great value in having a competent clipboard holder - even in Detroit, where the Lions have been fortunate to have one of the game's few ironmen at the position - Blough going from fourth-stringer in Week 1 to performing well on a short week vs. a top-5 defense at least suggests he belongs on a roster and competing for more chances.

"I think we have a football team that can go on the road in a tough environment and get a win". The Seahawks were electric on the ground, rushing for 218 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

But this was a flat-out missed opportunity to assert some dominance in the NFC playoff picture. Even Zimmer was surprised by how much the Seahawks tested that area throughout the game. Wilson was 21 of 31 for 240 yards.

It was a wild second half featuring 40 combined points and four key turnovers - three by Minnesota.

Seattle pulled even at 17 on Penny's 1-yard TD run. On Minnesota's first play of the next possession, Cook was stripped by Rasheem Green, and Bradley McDougald recovered. After leading 17-10 at the half on Monday, Minnesota was outscored by the Seahawks 27-13 in the final two quarters and it ultimately led to a disappointing loss for the Vikings.

The Rams have two top ten receivers in the NFC this season.

In effect, the Vikings tried to compensate for their biggest weakness - the play of their cornerbacks against the pass by putting safety help over the top - and ended up hurting themselves elsewhere. Cousins' pass for Stefon Diggs was intercepted by Tre Flowers, who may have gotten away with pass interference, but deflected the pass and made a juggling interception at the Minnesota 25.

Minnesota's rally started with Seattle's own blown coverage as Cousins hit Laquon Treadwell for a 58-yard TD. He logged no catches in the win over the Vikings.

"We're in control and that's a great thing".

For the first time this season for Vikings fans and the second time this season for Seahawks fans, those who wish to watch their team's game will have to scan their TV channels for ESPN.

Coach Pete Carroll is hoping Lockett will be back to his usual self Sunday night when Seattle travels to Los Angeles to face the Rams in primetime.

The mood in the visitors' locker room following the Minnesota Vikings' 37-30 loss in Seattle didn't reek of despair.
