Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. The Seahawks had a little luck and some good plays last night to outlast Los Angeles 30-29 at CenturyLink Field…
On a night when the late Paul Allen was inducted into the Seahawks Ring of Honor, it seemed maybe he provided one more breath of wind in Seattle as a potential game-winning field goal for Los Angeles missed just wide-right in the closing seconds.
Seattle clawed through five lead-changes to go ahead on a 12-play, 75-yard, nearly 7-minute drive when Russell Wilson found Chris Carson on a 5-yard touchdown throw to take a 30-29 lead with 2:34 remaining. Wilson had an MVP-caliber night, completing 17-of-23 passes for 268-yards and 4-touchdowns as the Seahawks improved to 4-and-1.
Pete Carroll was blown away at the tenacity of his team to hang in and come through…
Wilson was quick to credit his teammates for helping him provide yet another comeback win for the Seahawks…
Seattle is off until October 13th when it will travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns.
