SEATTLE, WA - Russell Wilson added to his resume for Offensive Rookie of the Year, carving up one of the league's best defenses and helping the Seattle Seahawks clinch a playoff spot with a 42-13 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Wilson was 15-of-21 for 171 yards with four touchdown passes, while Marshawn Lynch scored two first-quarter touchdowns as Seattle (10-5) kept its hopes of winning the NFC West alive.

In order to capture the division crown, the Seahawks will need to close out the regular season with a win against St. Louis and have the 49ers (10-4-1) lose to Arizona.
