The Seattle Seahawks completed a lousy night for St. Louis sports fans.

Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes to Golden Tate, and the Seahawks made a dramatic goal-line stand in the final minute to preserve a 14-9 victory over the Rams on Monday night -- less than an hour after the Cardinals lost to the Red Sox in the World Series just up the street.

The Seahawks (7-1), riding the best start in franchise history, were clinging to the lead when they were forced to punt with just over 5 minutes left in the game.

They pinned St. Louis at its own 3-yard line, but Kellen Clemens -- starting at quarterback in place of the injured Sam Bradford -- calmly marched the Rams (3-5) to the Seattle 1 as time wound down.

Daryl Richardson was stuffed on third down, and Clemens threw a fade pass incomplete in the corner of the end zone on fourth down as time expired.

The Seahawks won despite gaining just 135 yards of total offense, 80 of it on Wilson's second TD pass to Tate, the third-fewest yards in a victory in franchise history. Wilson was sacked a career-high seven times.

Seattle lost wide receiver Sidney Rice late in the first half with what the team called a knee injury.

Texans: Case Keenum will start at quarterback in place of a healthy Matt Schaub when Houston attempts to stop a five-game losing streak Sunday against Indianapolis.

Coach Gary Kubiak said the decision was not for the rest of the season but is geared toward trying to keep the team going in the right direction after a close 17-16 loss to Kansas City in which Keenum played well in his first start.

Who will line up behind Keenum is still in question. Starting running back Arian Foster (hamstring) worked only with the trainers Monday, and Ben Tate (ribs) missed practice altogether.

Panthers: Free safety Mike Mitchell said he's being "targeted" by league commissioner Roger Goodell after receiving his fifth fine of the season from the NFL.

Mitchell was fined $7,875 last week for taunting after he shoved Rams quarterback Sam Bradford out of bounds during a game Oct. 20. Bradford suffered a season-ending knee injury on the play. Mitchell wasn't penalized for taunting in the game.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Goodell does not make the decisions regarding on-field infractions.

Cardinals: Despite reports that Arizona might trade star receiver Larry Fitzgerald after the season, the team wants the seven-time Pro Bowler to finish his career in the desert.

"I can tell you two things, and I want to make this clear and simple -- I have not had one conversation with another NFL team regarding a trade with Larry Fitzgerald," general manager Steve Keim told Arizona Sports 620 radio. "Number two, starting with (Cardinals president) Michael Bidwill on down, it is our intent for Larry Fitzgerald to retire a Cardinal. Period."

The Cardinals gave Fitzgerald an extension worth $120 million in 2011.

Titans: About 1,000 mourners turned out for a memorial service in Houston for team owner Bud Adams, who died last week at his Houston home at age 90. Adams was remembered as passionate about winning and compassionate in supporting charitable causes.

"He was one of the brightest, most competitive visionaries in all of professional sports," league senior adviser Joe Browne said.

Browns: Speedy return specialist Travis Benjamin, one of Cleveland's top playmakers and one of the NFL's best punt returners, tore his anterior cruciate knee ligament in Sunday's loss at Kansas City and will miss the remainder of the season.

Buccaneers: Receiver Mike Williams will miss the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury.

Broncos: Linebacker Von Miller has agreed to perform 24 hours of community service and take a driving course before Jan. 23, at which time his lawyer will enter guilty pleas for minor traffic violations.
