SEATTLE — Los Angeles Rams cornerback Darious Williams owns Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson this season.

Wilson attempted a screen pass to DK Metcalf, but Williams read it the whole way as he jumped the route and returned the interception 42 yards for a touchdown to give the Rams a 13-3 lead. The pick is Williams third against Wilson this season and is the Rams’ fifth defensive score since Week 11, which leads the NFL. Williams picked off Wilson twice in the Rams’ 23-16 victory over Seattle in Week 10.

Leaguewide, there were 784 screen passes targeting WRs this regular season, and zero interceptions prior to Williams’ pick-six of Wilson’s screen pass targeting Metcalf.
