SEATTLE – Jason Myers hit a 32-yard field goal midway through overtime, and the Seattle Seahawks kept their playoff hopes alive with a 19:16 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
Myers missed from 46 yards when he hit the post in the last game of regulation, but after taking another hit in overtime, the pro bowler hit his fourth field goal of the game, and the Seahawks’ chances for the postseason remained for several more hours.
Seattle (9-8) knocked Detroit out of contention for the playoffs but still needed a Lions win or a draw with Green Bay on Sunday night to qualify for the playoffs as the No. 7 seed in the NFC. The Packers will take over the place and beat the Seahawks.
Jeno Smith had a shaky game with two interceptions against Jalen Ramsey. But he threw a 36-yard touchdown to Tyler Lockett in the first half and made some key late passes to get Seattle to win.
Rookie Kenneth Walker III ran for 114 yards for Seattle.
