Teams and stars around the league are breaking out entertainingtouchdowncelebrations this season after the league relaxed its persnickety rules, but the Rams (8-3) haven't put together any particularly memorable antics.

It took a moment for Bobby Wagner to recall four years ago and what it felt like to be on a team that was 10-1 at one point of the season. A team that looks very similar to that 2013 version of the Seahawks comes to Seattle on Sunday night when the 10-1 Philadelphia Eagles visit, riding a nine-game win streak and showing many of the same characteristics of that Seattle team from four years ago that ended up winning a Super Bowl.
