ST. LOUIS -- Mike Holmgren's final season in Seattle has been a nightmare. It's not as bad as a St. Louis Rams swoon that could soon leave the franchise coach-hunting.Held to 76 yards in the first half by a team finally rallying behind Jim Haslett, the Seahawks turned the tables with 10 points in the final 2:47 for a 23-20 victory Sunday. They're 3-11, Holmgren's worst record by far heading into a self-described sabbatical, but it beats 2-12.
• Olindo Mare's 27-yard field goal as time expired ended Seattle's six-game losing streak and extended St. Louis' skid to eight. The win was the Seahawks' eighth straight over the Rams.
• Torry Holt caught his first TD pass since Week 9 vs. the Cardinals and third this season. His other came in Week 2. Steven Jackson scored his first rushing TD since Week 7 vs. the Cowboys.
• After being held to 76 yards and seven points in the first half, Seattle rallied from a 17-7 halftime deficit by generating 257 yards and 16 points in the second half.
• The Seahawks scored 10 points in the final 2:47 to complete the comeback.
