The St. Louis Rams aren't playing for a playoff spot Sunday in their season finale against the Seattle Seahawks, but there's still a good bit to play for. For one thing, the Rams have a shot at their first winning season since 2003.
The Rams (7-7-1) look to be the first road team to knock off the playoff-bound Seahawks at their home when they meet Sunday for a 3:25 p.m. CT kickoff at Qwest Field in Seattle. The Seahawks (10-5) are still playing for a chance at winning the NFC West. They'll need to beat the Rams and hope the Cardinals can upset the 49ers.
St. Louis, meanwhile, is looking to spoil their division foe's plans while looking for a rare (of late) winning season. The franchise has finished 8-8 just twice since making the playoffs with a 12-4 record in 2003, with every other year since then finishing under .500. They made the playoffs as a wild card in 2004 with an 8-8 record and haven't made the postseason since -- a dubious streak that, despite a surprisingly good first year under head coach Jeff Fisher, will continue one more year.
The Rams knocked off the Seahawks 19-13 when they met in Week 4. Sunday's Week 17 game between the NFC West opponents will be televised by FOX.
