By The Numbers: Cliff Avril Sets Career-High For Sacks Against Los Angeles Rams

Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril improved his season total for sacks to 11.5 on Thursday night.

The Seattle Seahawks moved to 9-4-1 on the season after defeating the Los Angeles Rams 24-3 at CenturyLink Field on Thursday evening. To recap notable player performances, team milestones and (of course) how the game played out, we compiled 10 numbers from the Week 15 contest:


The Seahawks remain undefeated at home this season after beating the Rams and have one more contest (Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals) to win in order to establish their fourth undefeated home campaign in franchise history. The other years Seattle has accomplished the feat are 2003, 2005 and 2012.


The Rams have the two lowest yards per rush marks by a Seahawks opponent this season: 2.8 (yesterday) and 2.6 (Week 2). Additionally, Los Angeles' 47 yards rushing last night were also the lowest by a Seattle opponent all season.


Since 2010, the Seahawks have now made the postseason six times, with four of those trips coming after being crowned NFC West champions.


Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson now has a 4-1 record in regular season games following performances where he has thrown two or more interceptions.


From ESPN Stats and Information: Tyler Lockett has 10 career regular season touchdowns, with six of them being 40-plus yards (including returns). Lockett hauled in seven catches for 130 yards, including a 57-yard bomb from Wilson, against the Rams. 


By recording a sack and a half, Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril set a new career-high for sacks in season with 11.5. His previous career-high was 11, which he set in 2011 while a member of the Detroit Lions. That's four more houses for Haiti (he rounds up). 


Since 2010, the Seahawks are 19-3-1 in primetime matchups and have outscored opponents 581-298 in those games.


With the win, Wilson moved into second-place for the most wins by a quarterback in his first five seasons. He is one win away from tying Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.


The Seahawks defense held Rams rookie quarterback Jared Goff to only 135 yards with a 67.9 passer rating, which is well below the number the unit has held opposing quarterbacks to this season on average (83.4).


Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin hauled in five of his six targets against the Rams for 35 yards. His five catches moved his season total to 79, which set a new career-high for receptions in a season.
