The third-seeded Seahawks pulled to 30-20 with 2:28 remaining on DK Metcalf’s second touchdown catch of the game. But the Rams recovered the ensuing onside kick.READ MORE: $150,000 Reward Offered For Information In Murder Of El Sereno Business Owner Reza Mousavi

Wolford started but injured his neck in the first quarter. And Jared Goff was pressed into duty less than two weeks since he had three pins surgically inserted into his broken right thumb.
Donald suffered a rib injury on a tackle of Russell Wilson after collecting two sacks and Kupp limped into the locker room after injuring his right knee in the closing minutes.
What’s next for the Rams? According to CBS Sports, “they’ll take on the Green Bay Packers if the New Orleans Saints defeat the Chicago Bears but, if the Saints lose, the Rams will face the winner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers versus the Washington Football Team.”MORE NEWS: Pasadena Implements COVID Vaccine Mandate For Bars, Large Outdoor Events
