Seahawks hold Rams’ goal-line stand to win ugly on the road | Audibles -
No championship team has a constant string of obvious victories. Every team, no matter how good, will have to find ways to win ugly away from home despite sub-par performances from key players and groups. And in climbing to 7-1 on the season, the Seattle Seahawks did just that. They looked in no way like the team many expected before the season to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, but if you’re of the opinion that wins are all that count, Seattle’s 14-9 win over the St. Louis Rams makes the books in that regard.
