concussion protocol. >> al: third and 20. and wilson, going for the end zone, and picked off at the 1 yard line by ogletree. we'll take that back to the 9 yard line. the refs can't be thrilled about that. they wound up with the interception. >> cris: they end up with a good shot on russell wilson, too. >> al: they did. by aaron donald, with 3:08 left. >> cris: watch the end of the play. aaron donald, coming right through there. right. as russell wilson throws it, a shot, nothing illegal. i don't want to say that. but i just know how it sits with defensive players sometimes, when thefe
had been slighted. and of course, pete carroll will tell you, i'm trying to win the division. i'm trying to lock this whole thing up. but there's been some back and forth. and the rams have had huge special teams plays in the past. there's been a little chip byness going back and forth. and the punter took a shot one time at one of their defensive linemen. and they almost came back and got him. there's some history here. >> al: there sure is. case keenum is the quarterback, with goff back in the locker room, getting checked out. keenum throws. short gain. caught there by brian quick up at the 13, tackled by jauron johnson, second down. >> cris: you don't take the first overall pick and go quarterback and think you're going to hold that job forever. you did an okay job for this franchise as a backup
quarterback. >> al: to the 25 yard line. brian quick making the catch. thorpe with the tackle. first down. >> cris: and it works both ways. pete carroll has been around the block a couple of times. what are the seahawks doing? they're firing blitzes left and right at case keenum. >> al: taken in by michael thomas. second down. >> cris: i'm sure for john fassel, not the result he dreamed about. but this certainly has to be the thrill of a lifetime to get an opportunity to be the head coach. and i still go back to that first drive, al. they have one of those two touchdowns. don't miss the wide-open guy. and convert on the fourth down. it's a different game. >> al: no question.
second and four. and that's incomplete. over the middle. intended for austin. the rams, their final road game of the season. been better on the road than they have been at home. and they will go home. and end the year with two divisional foes, in arizona and san francisco. >> cris: you have to like where seattle is sitting right now with their remaining schedule and their chances of getting that bye, one home game. and then, hopefully for them, one shot of the championship and a return trip to the super bowl. >> al: they don't need a tiebreaker because it's a half-game they're behind, because of a tie with arizona. and the pass floats. it's incomplete. todd gurley makes it fourth down and four. >> cris: that was a big miss. and the rams have just missed opportunities.
gurley was going to have a chance for a big play, if not a touchdown here. and the ball was at least seven yards underthrown. >> al: fourth and four, the rams down by 21. it's the fourth time tonight they've gone for it on fourth down. haven't converted any. still haven't. austin makes the catch. seattle will get the ball. and we go to the two-minute warning with 1:57 on the clock. and seattle, on the cusp of clinching the nfc west. on "thursday night football."

which people don't get overly excited about in this town anymore. but that's the first step in the process. >> al: one more kneeldown will do it. seattle will go to 9-4-1. the rams will go to 4-10. john fassel will get a couple more games as the interim head coach. pete carroll gets another nfc west title. and the seahawks win it by a score of 24-3. coming up next, the volkswagen postgame report. this has been hu
for the third time they clinch the nfl west. and in so doing this year, they eliminate the arizona cardinals from playoff contention in the 2016 season. heather cox is with russell wilson right now. >> russell, coming into this game, you, in your career, hadn't had a ton of success against this defense. how did you turn the tide around tonight? >> their defensive line is unbelievable. all those guys up front. but the offensive line came through. we made some big, big plays. thomas ran the ball really hard. weren't getting big yards. but when we did, it was a key moment. and guys make great plays. luke wilson's touchdown. other guys make great catches. and tyler lockett, running down the sideline, going with the ball that's unbelievable. a lot of great plays. the defense played lights-out. a great game. great enthusiasm. and to win the nfc west is not an easy challenge. to do it here at home, it doesn't get any better.
>> with this win, you capture the division. what kind of confidence does that give you in this team to make a deep run in the playoffs, russell? >> we always have great confidence. not just winning this game or even losing a tough one. we have great confidence. we have great confidence because of how we prepare. and i think that coach really gets us prepared. all of us players were dedicated to the game. we're going to continue to be better. i think just continue to grow. we got a lot of great things happening. obviously, a check mark to win the nfc west. but a lot more to get out of it. every game counts. >> russell, enjoy this one. >> go, hawks. >> al, back up to you. >> thank you, heather. it's on to arlington, texas. the tampa bay buccaneers against the dallas cowboys. we saw the bucs lose at home against atlanta. how in the world would they win five games in a row after that. but they've i
they were not impressive on that thursday night. and then, they just started putting things together. and i think the real key has been the play of their defense. they have been able -- they shut down this offense. but we'll go into dallas with the same enthusiasm. russell wilson, clinching the division. that guy just loves playing football, doesn't he? >> he does. they win the nfc west. and the dallas cowboys will try to win the nfc east. and hold on to that number one seed. only in cowboy land can you win 11 in a row. there's always something going on. and of course, we have plenty going on this weekend. >> but remember, they went on the road, back-to-back, against minnesota, a tough defense. against a new york giants defense. this is three-straight tough defenses. this will be challenged again. >> bucs at cowboys. on "sunday night football" we'll be back here in seattle after this.
