The #Seahawks have seven wins, one more than Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner have combined on their new teams.— Danny O'Neil (@dannyoneil) December 5, 2022
The last time the Seattle Seahawks beat the LA Rams was December 27th of 2020. Let’s just say... a lot has changed since then. The 6-5 Seahawks came into this game trying to get back on track on the heels of a two game losing streak; the defending Super Bowl champs have had a nightmare of a season at 3-8, and are currently weighing their options at QB for the remainder of the season. According to StatHead, the last time the Seahawks beat the Rams was December 27th of 2020, and the last time they beat them on the road was in 2017. I wasn’t going to get comfortable until the final second left the clock. And I wasn’t alone.
Heading in to that final touchdown drive, tensions were high and emotions were... mixed.
No OT please. None of it.— occasional good opinion haver (@wrongopinionman) December 4, 2022
Bad defense, lack of depth at RB with injuries, offensive line playing poorly will cost us this game. Game on Geno and the receivers shoulders.— Mikaela Mattes (@mikaelamattes) December 4, 2022
seahawks defense: isn't good— Danny Kelly (@DannyBKelly) December 4, 2022
with very little going on deep this game, i suspect he'd had a good game overall but that wasn't good on the WR run https://t.co/PVDAzMQlHe— irreversibly genopilled but it's festive ❄ (@cmikesspinmove) December 4, 2022
I do not like our defense. Ruins the fun of watching the game..— Tameka Renee (@TheMomNextDoor2) December 4, 2022
But Geno Smith silenced the doubters and put together a dazzling game winning drive that ate up a ton of clock and ended with a touchdown to none other than DK Metcalf, but we’ll get to him later. You may have heard: this is something that Smith hadn’t done for a few years. But as he has done all season, he kept his cool and did what he has been doing.

Geno Smith’s composure on that last drive was COT DAMN glorious..— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) December 5, 2022
Has become such an incredible pro.. so happy for him
DK Metcalf had some memorable moments in this one, mostly good, but for a bit there it looked like Jalen Ramsey got in his head.
I NEED TO KNOW WHAT DK SAID— Carissa Joy (@carissajanuary) December 5, 2022
Whatever Metcalf said that got him in trouble, he was the guy who got the last word, and what a word it was.

On the defensive side of the ball, rookie Tariq Woolen set a team record! Richard Sherman noticed.
Tariq Woolen has his 6th interception of the year. As a rookie.— Dugar, Michael-Shawn (@MikeDugar) December 4, 2022
Even when you get past Tariq Woolen, you aren't really past Tariq Woolen.— John Boyle (@johnpboyle) December 4, 2022
That wasn’t the only thing Richard Sherman noticed.

DK may have received most of the post game hype following that huge game winner, but it was his teammate who caught Seattle’s first touchdown on the day, and in doing so tied a team record. And made a lot of fans happy. Tyler Lockett had a great game in general, and played with a level of intensity that was obvious; he wanted this victory over the Rams, and he did his part to make sure that happened.

The San Francisco 49ers were able to put together a resounding win over the Miami Dolphins, but otherwise things went well for the Seahawks, as the Denver Broncos dropped yet another single score game, losing 9-10 to the Baltimore Ravens, and helping Seattle’s draft status even further.
Right now, the Seattle Seahawks hold the #7 seed in the NFC playoffs and the #3 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft— Seaside Joe: Daily Seahawks Newsletter (@seasidejoenews) December 5, 2022
Bobby Wagner had a huge game against his former team. Words can hardly do justice to what we saw from Wagner on the field, but obviously Seahawks fans watched (and tweeted) in a mixture of respect and horror as we finally got to see what other teams have been seeing for the last decade.

Wow. The interception is going to stand. Bobby Wagner today has 2 sacks, one additional tackle for loss and now an interception.— Dugar, Michael-Shawn (@MikeDugar) December 4, 2022
This, folks, is a Revenge Game
Really tough day for the “Bobby Wagner is washed” crowd— Joe Fann (@Joe_Fann) December 4, 2022
Carroll said he's still arguing about the Bobby Wagner interception and said he's looking forward to seeing Bobby so he can keep arguing about it with him too.— Curtis Crabtree (@Curtis_Crabtree) December 5, 2022
Viewers were once again puzzled by a turnover, this time in the form of a bizarre interception that was really more a feat of strength for Bobby Wagner. Regardless of what the final call was, this was a dizzying sequence, to say the least.
Bobby Wagner's INT and the Hunter Henry non-catch on Thanksgiving can't coexist within the same rule and explanation.— Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) December 4, 2022
One of those calls is wrong.
There is absolutely no way that is an interception. I don’t get that call at all.— Mike Lefko (@MikeLefko) December 4, 2022

And Mark Sanchez may have never found the rejuvenation as a signal caller that his fellow New York Jets castawya is currently enjoying, but that isn’t to say he hasn’t found himself a solid career in broadcasting.
Mark Sanchez still sexy af tho.— Kristina Loves Geno (@Kristina_Moats) December 4, 2022
