Paul Allen may have helped Seahawks to 30-29 win

Seahawks edge Rams 30-29

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…
