The NFC West champion Seahawks will host the divisional rival Rams in a wild-card matchup on Saturday.
Seattle enters the playoffs on a four-game winning streak, including its late rally to beat the 49ers on Sunday. Quarterback Russell Wilson connected with Tyler Lockett on two fourth-quarter touchdowns to secure a 26–23 victory. The team had already locked in the No. 3 seed in the NFC before Sunday and the win didn't change their playoff position.
The Rams needed a win over the Cardinals on Sunday and pulled it off thanks to their defense's impressive performance and backup quarterback John Wolford. Cornerback Troy Hill returned an interception 84 yards for a touchdown, while Wolford, playing in place of Jared Goff, passed for 231 yards and rushed for 56 more in his NFL debut.
Despite failing to score an offensive touchdown for a second straight game, Los Angeles snapped its two-game skid and earned its third playoff berth in four years.
Saturday's game will pit Wilson, who was an MVP candidate for most of the season, against the Rams' sterling defense and star tackle Aaron Donalds, who is widely regarded as the NFL's top defender.

The two teams split their meetings in the regular season, with both winning at their home stadiums. The Rams beat the Seahawks, 23–16, in their first matchup in Week 10, while Seattle retaliated with a Week 16 victory.
Former Florida and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer appears to remain interested in a possible move to the NFL.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Meyer and the Jaguars met Friday night on team owner Shad Khan's boat in Florida. Meyer has reportedly been assembling a coaching staff, including some assistants from the college level, in case he decides to become the Jaguars' next head coach.
Rumors began swirling last week that the club had shown interest in Meyer, even before Jacksonville fired coach Doug Marrone on Monday following the team's 1–15 season. The Jaguars have already interviewed Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy and Falcons interim coach Raheem Morris for the head-coaching position.
Meyer retired from coaching college football in 2018 but has since drawn interest from college and NFL teams. Since leaving Ohio State, he has served as a college football analyst for FOX.
