St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks
8:20 p.m., WRC-4, WBAL-11, Rams by 3 The winner claims the NFCWest title and fourth seed in the NFC playoffs. St. Louis would be the third team in league history to win a division at 8-8, while Seattle would become the first team — other than during the 1982 strike-shortened season — to make the playoffs with a losing record. Rams RB Steven Jackson has not topped 100 yards rushing in 12 career games against Seattle. The Seahawks are planning to start Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback afterMatt Hasselbeck aggravated a hip injury last week against Tampa Bay. However, Seattle is leaving open the possibility that Hasselbeck could play. SMARTER STATS: One hidden factor for the Rams in this winnertake-all matchup could be wideout/returner Danny Amendola, who leads the NFL with 2,283 all-purpose yards and has become perhaps the most effective third-down receiver in the game. He’s averaging 10.3 yards per catch on third down and 8.2 overall.
