Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Wednesday, December 22 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Rams 20, Seahawks 10
The Seahawks fell short in their bid to pull off an upset win on Tuesday night, losing to the Los Angeles Rams for the second time this season by a score of 20-10. It was a solid defensive effort by the Seahawks for most of the night, holding the Rams and the league's top wide receiver in Cooper Kupp to just three points in the first half. Quandre Diggs tied a career high by grabbing his fifth interception of the season, and Carlos Dunlap II had his best performance of the year with three sacks.
But the offense couldn't generate enough answers, gaining just 214 total yards of their own on the evening. DeeJay Dallas scored the Seahawks' only touchdown on a four-yard carry in the third quarter and was Seattle's top rusher with eight carries for 41 yards. Gerald Everett led all Seahawks receivers with 60 yards on four catches.

It was Kupp who stole the show offensively, though, finishing the game with nine catches for 136 yards and two touchdowns. Kupp now has 122 receptions on the season, surpassing the franchise record Isaac Bruce had set for the Rams in 1995 (119).
