Shaquill Griffin, who's quietly had his best season, was critical of his own play Sunday night: "I feel I like I didn't have the game I usually have. I didn't play well ... I have to to better. I have to do more for my team." Two plays Griffin wanted back were Robert Woods' touchdown and Tyler Higbee's 33-yard catch. He said he should have gotten set sooner on Woods' TD and that he shouldn't have abandoned the deep third -- his responsibility -- in anticipation of a screen on Higbee's catch.

A few Seahawks players talked about how they didn't match the Rams' energy Sunday night. Shaquill Griffin felt they didn't have the right mindset coming in, saying they were on their "high horse" at 10-2. He predicted it'll be different next week in Charlotte. "We can't come in thinking we're automatically going to win this game," he said. "We've got to ... go into each game [thinking] that we have to take this W. We have to take this win. We have to come ready to play."

Bobby Wagner's bigger-picture view of the Seahawks losing 28-12 to the Rams: "It's not the end of the world. It's a loss. We're sitting at ... 10-3. It's a lot better position than we were sitting at last year." Wagner said the Rams caught Seattle's defense off guard with its tempo.

How much of an impact has Quandre Diggs made since he entered the Seahawks' starting lineup at free safety? He has four takeaways in four starts, including a 55-yard pick-six tonight and an interception on the Rams' next possession. Shaquem Griffin applied the pressure in Jared Goff's face on Diggs' pick-six, leading to an overthrow. Diggs missed his first two games with a hamstring injury after being acquired from Detroit. He has three interceptions and a forced/recovered fumble since then.

The Seahawks are getting worked like it's Week 15 of the 2017 season. That's when the Rams beat them 42-7 in the worst loss of the Pete Carroll era. This game has the makings of a blowout as the Rams lead 21-3 at halftime after driving 75, 85 and 72 yards for touchdowns on three of their four possessions. Seattle has been hurt by two drops -- on third and fourth down -- and will be without Rashaad Penny the rest of the night. The Seahawks are a second-half team, but this hole looks awfully deep.

Seahawks RB Penny sprains ACL early vs. Rams

Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny left Sunday night's 28-12 defeat to the Los Angeles Rams after spraining the ACL in his knee on Seattle's opening drive.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Rashaad Penny has been downgraded to out after hurting his knee on the Seahawks' opening possession. Seattle's other available tailbacks are starter Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and rookie Travis Homer.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Rashaad Penny is questionable to return after hurting his knee on the Seahawks' opening drive. Seattle has two other active tailbacks behind Chris Carson and Penny in C.J. Prosise and rookie Travis Homer, who got his first career carry last week on a fake punt.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Jadeveon Clowney is active tonight for the Seahawks against the Rams. Ziggy Ansah is not. Ansah had started to turn the corner physically and had been coming on of late with 1.5 sacks in Philadelphia and three QB hits vs. Minnesota. So his absence feels more significant than it would have a few weeks ago. It should mean pass-rush snaps for Shaquem Griffin, among others.

Through the 4 p.m. games: there is now a 91% chance the No. 1 seed in the NFC will come from the West. 49ers: 60% Seahawks: 31% Saints: 8% Packers: 1%

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks' inactives against the Rams: Ziggy Ansah, Luke Willson, Mychal Kendricks, Nick Bellore, John Ursua, Phil Haynes and Neiko Thorpe.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

With a win or tie tonight, the Seahawks will clinch their eighth playoff appearance in 10 seasons under Pete Carroll. For perspective on that, they made the playoffs 10 times in the franchise's first 34 seasons before Carroll arrived in 2010.

With Mychal Kendricks doubtful after not practicing all week, rookie Cody Barton is in line to make his first career start. Pete Carroll called the third-round pick unique in how quickly he's picked up all three linebacker positions. But Carroll volunteered that the Seahawks may have to play more nickel without Kendricks as opposed to their preferred base 4-3 defense. Seattle has played the fewest snaps with five or more defensive backs this year at 242, per ESPN charting. The next fewest: 468.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Seahawks defensive ends Jadeveon Clowney and Ziggy Ansah are listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the Rams after practicing all week. Clowney was a full participant Friday. "They did practice enough this week to where we feel good about it," Pete Carroll said. "We've got to check them out on gameday." Linebacker Mychal Kendricks, tight end Luke Willson and fullback Nick Bellore are doubtful. Cornerback Neiko Thorpe had season-ending sports hernia surgery, so a roster move is coming there.
