(Reuters) - The Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers claimed divisional titles on Sunday, the final day of the NFL regular season.

The reigning Super Bowl champion Seahawks wrapped up the NFC West crown with a 20-6 victory over the St. Louis Rams that gave them the number one playoff seed in the NFC.

Green Bay, despite an injury scare to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, won the NFC North for the fourth consecutive season with a 30-20 triumph over the Detroit Lions.

Surprising Carolina captured the NFC South title with a 34-3 mauling of the Atlanta Falcons for its fourth straight win.

One other division crown was up for grabs when the Cincinnati Bengals played at the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.

The Baltimore Ravens claimed the final AFC wild-card berth when they beat the Cleveland Browns and the San Diego Chargers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs earlier on Sunday.
