SEATTLE - There was something extra to the Seattle Seahawks celebration on Sunday because at midseason it appeared they were on the verge of not even being in the post-season picture.That turnaround made Seattles celebration of its NFC West title and home-field advantage through the playoffs meaningful in a different way after beating St. Louis 20-6.The Seahawks were 3-3 and 6-4 at key points of this season. And they finished on top of the NFC, riding a six-game win streak and knowing they dont have to leave Seattle again until a potential Super Bowl trip.To finish the season, and be really strong here in December again, thats something we take great pride in, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. Finishing is a big deal to us. Now we have a chance to get into the playoffs and see if we can do something with that as well.Seattle (12-4) took the lead on Marshawn Lynchs 9-yard touchdown run with 12:07 remaining — his 17th TD of the season — and got the capper from Bruce Irvin and his 49-yard interception return for a score less than 3 minutes later. The Seahawks forced three turnovers in the fourth quarter, including Earl Thomas causing St. Louis Benny Cunningham to fumble at the 1 on his way in for a potential TD.I have no doubt. I had no doubt, and this team believes in each other, believes that well find a way to pull it out, Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said.St. Louis (6-10) wrapped up an injury filled season that didnt match expectations the Rams would join the conversation in the NFC West. St. Louis was on the verge of disrupting the NFC playoff picture holding a 6-0 lead, but couldnt capitalize on a pair of Seattle turnovers in the first half and made too many mistakes late.Here are other things that stood out from Seattle beating St. Louis at home in Week 17 for the fourth time in five seasons:BEST Defence: Seattle continued to make the argument its defence could be considered among the best of this era. Seattle finished the season as the NFL leader in yards allowed and points allowed, becoming just the fourth team to accomplish that feat in consecutive seasons.It was the third straight season Seattle led the league in fewest points allowed, only the third time in NFL history that had been accomplished. The last time was the 1969-71 Minnesota Vikings. Seattle allowed 15.9 points this season.SLOW RUN: Seattle has leaned so heavily on its run game that when the Seahawks dont post significant run numbers its notable. The Seahawks finished with 132 yards rushing against the Rams, the fewest in their final five games. It was just the second time in the final nine games the Seahawks were held under 149 yards rushing.Lynch finished with 60 yards on just 14 carries and Robert Turbin had 53 yards on 11 carries, but Russell Wilsons running was shut down by the Rams.BETTER THAN 6-10: St. Louis believes it was better than its 6-10 record. The Rams had home victories over Seattle and Denver, but were unable to break through on the road. The Rams did not beat a road team with a winning record this season and closed the year with three straight losses.Our expectations are high so some people might not be surprised that we come in here and lose a close one, we expect to win, Rams defensive end Chris Long said. It just takes the growth of this team, young guys getting more experience and well be real good next year.FIERCE RUSH: Through five games, the Rams had just one sack. That changed for the Rams when Seattle visited St. Louis in October and continued for the rest of the season. St. Louis finished with 39 sacks in its final 11 games and added three more on Sunday.HAUSCH MONEY: Seattle kicker Steven Hauschka had some unusual struggles last week at Arizona missing three field goal attempts. It was the first time in his career missing three kicks in a single game.Hauschka thanked his teammates last week after a walkthrough for covering for his misses.I feel like Im ready to help this team out. Im sure there is going to be plays where some guys on our team needs help from other players and thats just how it works, Hauschka said.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Kevin Johnson Jersey . -- D.A.

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Andrew Wiggins is from Canada, Wayne Selden from Massachusetts and Joel Embiid from the African nation of Cameroon. None of them grew up around the Kansas basketball program. None of them grew up around the Jayhawks rivalry with Kansas State. So all week, the trio of freshmen -- along with the rest of the Jayhawks -- were subjected to videos on the rivalry. Kansas coach Bill Self wanted to drive home the importance that those games against the Wildcats have taken on over the years. The message must have come through quite clearly. Wiggins scored 22 points, Selden added 20 and the No. 18 Jayhawks routed the 25th-ranked Wildcats 86-60 on Saturday for their sixth straight win in the series. "We wanted to put them in a mindset of the energy and the type of emotion this game has been played with in the past," Self said. "It might have helped. I dont know." It sure seemed as if it helped. Embiid contributed 11 points and nine rebounds, and Perry Ellis scored 12 as Kansas (11-4, 2-0 Big 12) shot 56 per cent and committed just seven turnovers. "It just shows were the dominant team in Kansas," Wiggins said. The Wildcats (12-4, 2-1), who had won their last 10 games, lost their seventh straight at Allen Fieldhouse and for the 48th time in the last 51 meetings. Nino Williams had 12 points and Thomas Gipson scored 10 to lead Kansas State, but top scorer Marcus Foster was held to just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting. They have great depth. Theyve got so many weapons," Wildcats coach Bruce Weber said. "You try to take away something and you have to give something, and they made shots." Just about the only thing that didnt go right for Kansas came late in the game, when Embiid threw an elbow that clipped Williams in the face. Embiid got a technical foul and was ejected, but a Big 12 official said he would not be suspended for Monday nights game at Iowa State. "Regardless of what took prior, you have to be tough enough to think, Next play," Self said. "Thats frustrating to me that it would happen, even if it was a situation where itt was retaliatory, and I have no idea if it was.dddddddddddd" Kansas State actually hung tough through the first 10 minutes of the game, finding a basket every time the frenzied crowd inside Allen Fieldhouse reached a throaty roar. But a couple of foul shots by Selden and a 3-pointer by Conner Frankamp set the Jayhawks off and running. Tarik Blacks basket in the paint finished off a 9-2 surge, and a put-back by Ellis off his own miss a few minutes later wrapped up another 9-2 run and gave Kansas a 33-18 lead. Selden, coming off a career-best 24 points at Oklahoma, knocked down a 3-pointer just before the halftime buzzer to send the Jayhawks into the locker room with a 45-28 cushion. Suddenly, the 278th meeting between the schools looked like so many before it. How impressive was the first half for Kansas? The Wildcats had been holding opponents to just 53 points per game during their 10-game win streak, yet allowed the Jayhawks to pile up 14 assists without a turnover and shoot 65.5 per cent from the field. As if things werent going perfectly enough for Kansas, Embiid knocked down a 3 from the top of the key to open the second half -- hed missed the first two tries of his career. The Jayhawks partied hard the rest of the game. There was the alley-oop dunk by Wiggins off a feed from Selden, and a nimble post move by Embiid that resulted in another dunk. And even when Wiggins threw the ball away for the Jayhawks first turnover, he atoned for it with back-to-back 3-pointers for a 58-34 lead. Then came Wiggins biggest highlight, a one-handed slam that went through the rim with such force that the ball bounced the entire length of the floor the other direction. In a sign of just how badly things were going for the Wildcats, they were hit with three charging fouls in a span of just a few minutes in the second half. Its become rare enough to see one offensive foul in a game the way such calls are being made this season. "It was an offensive game and were not an offensive team yet," Williams said. "Were a defensive team and we let the offence dictate the game."
