The Seattle Seahawks kept their postseason hopes alive by the slimmest of margins, defeating the Los Angeles Rams on a field goal in overtime to win 19-16.

Offensive spotlight: Seahawks rookie Kenneth Walker III outdueled the Rams' Cam Akers on the ground, although both passed the century mark. Walker accrued 94 of his 114 rushing yards after contact, compared to 57 out of 104 for Akers. Walker also forced five missed tackles on 29 carries, while Akers tallied two on 21 attempts.

Defensive spotlight: Jalen Ramsey is set to edge out Quandre Diggs for the top coverage grade in this game, pending review. Ramsey allowed three catches on six targets for just 33 yards, not to mention his two interceptions.

Rookie spotlight: Tackles Abraham Lucas and Charles Cross held up well in pass protection. Lucas didn't allow any pressure and also put forth a stellar performance as a run blocker. Cross let up only two hurries en route to a 75.0-plus pass-blocking grade on first review.

Offensive line spotlight: Damien Lewis and the aforementioned Lucas stayed clean in pass protection to anchor an excellent day from Seattle's offensive line. The unit allowed only five pressures combined — four hurries, one hit and no sacks.
