NFC West title on line as Seahawks face Rams

The storyline
The NFC West championship game. Can Seattle win a division at 7-9 with Charlie Whitehurst at the helm? Can the Rams win in what, over the years, has been a very tough road environment with rookie Sam Bradford at the helm?

Why you should watch
The only singular game that will decide a division, and now it's in prime time! The final regular season game of the season. Bradford is the real deal, and the Rams' defense has been stout all season. Seattle's inability to run the ball all season could undermine it, particularly if Matt Hasselbeck can't play.

Did you know?
Bradford has a rookie record 335 completions this year. ... St. Louis' Steven Jackson is the only Ram ever with six consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons. ... Seahawks safety Earl Thomas leads all NFC rookies with five interceptions. ... Seattle's Leon Washington is tied for the NFL lead with three kickoff return touchdowns this year.
