Ten numbers that helped tell the story of the Seahawks’ season-ending loss to the Rams. John Boyle

The Seahawks saw their 2020 season come to an end with a 30-20 loss to the Rams in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. In addition to that final score, here are 10 numbers that helped tell the story of that season-ending loss.

2

Turnovers for the Seahawks, one on offense and one on special teams. The Seahawks finished the year losing every game in which they committed multiple turnovers, while going 12-0 when they had one or no turnovers.

Sacks recorded by the Rams, a big factor in the Seahawks' offensive struggles. Over the course of three games, the Rams sacked Russell Wilson 16 times this season.

2

Third-down conversions on 14 attempts for Seattle, which started out 0 for 8 before getting its first third-down conversion.

11

First downs recorded by Seattle's offense, a season-low, as was 278 yards gained.

3

Sacks recorded by Seattle's defense, which had multiple sacks in the final 11 games of the season, and three or more in 10 of those 11 games.

164

Rushing yards for the Rams, the third most gained by an opponent this season, a total that included 131 yards and a touchdown from rookie Cam Akers, who missed the previous meeting between the two teams.

0

Turnovers committed by the Rams, who did not have a turnover-free game during the regular season.

16

Tackles by Bobby Wagner, who according to Pro Football Reference is just the second player in the last 30 years to have 15 or more tackles and a sack in a playoff game.

96

Receiving yards for DK Metcalf on five catches, two of which were touchdowns. Metcalf, one of the few bright spots on an otherwise tough day for the offense, now has 16 catches for 315 yards and 3 touchdowns in three career playoff games.

2

Sacks by Jarran Reed, who had 8.5 this season, playoff game included, and who had five total sacks over his final five games.
