Twelve numbers that help tell the story of the Seahawks’ Week 13 win in Los Angeles.

The Seahawks improved to 7-5 with Sunday's 27-23 win over the Rams, a game that featured huge performances from Geno Smith, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, multiple sacks from Uchenna Nwosu, and a franchise rookie record for Tariq Woolen. For more on all of that, here are 12 numbers of note From Sunday's win in Los Angeles:

367

Passing yards for Geno Smith, a new career high.

65

Yards for Smith on the final drive, which included the game-winning touchdown pass to DK Metcalf with 36 seconds left on the clock.

12

Consecutive games with at least an 80 passer rating and 60 percent completion percentage to start the season for Geno Smith, a feat previously only matched by Aaron Rodgers (2011) and Peyton Manning (2009), both of whom won MVP honors that year. It was also Smith's sixth consecutive game with multiple touchdown passes and a passer rating over 100, the longest such streak in franchise history.

9 and 10

Games with a passer rating over 100, and games with multiple touchdown passes for Smith this season, both of which lead the NFL. Smith's 72.7 completion percentage also leads the NFL and if he can keep that rate up for five more games, it would be the third highest completion percentage in league history, trailing only Drew Brees' 2018 and 2019 seasons.

128 and 127

Yards gained by Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, respectively. It was the first time two different Seahawks have had 100 receiving yards in a game since those two did it against Dallas in Week 3 of the 2020 season.

5

Consecutive games with a touchdown catch for Lockett, matching a franchise record shared by Steve Largent (1984), Joey Galloway (1998) and Doug Baldwin (2015).

2

Sacks by Uchenna Nwosu, upping his career-high total to 9.0, and helping the Seahawks pass rush bounce back with four sacks after having just one in the previous two games.

6

Interceptions this season for Tariq Woolen after he added another on Sunday. That's not only tied for the NFL lead this season and the most among cornerbacks, it also established a new franchise rookie record, with Woolen moving past Earl Thomas and Michael Boulware.

1

Interception for Cody Barton, which came on the Rams' final play of the game. It was the second interception for Barton his last three games after having no career interceptions over his first three-plus seasons.

53.0

Michael Dickson's net average on two punts Sunday, upping his season net average to career-best 45.5, which ranks second in the NFL.

33.3

The Rams' conversion rate on third down, a big improvement for Seattle's defense after Tampa Bay and Las Vegas went a combined 18 for 29 in the previous two games.

2

Wins at SoFi Stadium for the Seahawks this season, tying the Rams and Chargers for the most victories there during the 2022 season.
