It's the second time in three seasons the Seahawks were ousted from the postseason in the wild-card round after losing in the 2018 playoffs at Dallas.

Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford was taken from Seattle's Lumen Field in an ambulance on Saturday after he appeared to suffer a blow to the head from the shoulder of Seahawks safety Jamal Adams.

The victor of the game will go on to play in the divisional round of the playoffs next weekend. Wilson had a 51-yard scoring throw to DK Metcalf after he scrambled to escape the pass rush that seemed to be non-stop. Wilson was the leading MVP candidate throwing a record number of touchdowns to begin the season as Seattle started 5-0.

A big part of why Wilson struggled so much in Saturday's Wild Card matchup was a big man in a Los Angeles uniform.

Donald landed a quarterback hit on Russell Wilson as the Seahawks' QB hurried a deep pass that fell incomplete.

But even with a huge road win against a divsion rival in-hand, the Rams might have to sweat it out during the coming week while awaiting to learn the status of their best player, as Donald left the game in the third quarter with an apparent rib injury and was not able to return to the game.

Wilson and Co. failed to take advantage of Donald's absence and to wake up on offense until it was too late in the fourth quarter.

Troy Aikman broke down the Rams' performance without Donald on the field.

A year ago, there was a feeling of optimism after losing in the divisional round at Green Bay when Seattle was so depleted by injuries at the key position of running back that Marshawn Lynch was brought out of retirement to carry the load.
