Russell Wilson’s late TD lifts Seattle Seahawks to franchise’s first 5-0 document

SEATTLE — Russell Wilson threw a 6-yard landing go to DK Metcalf with 15 seconds remaining Sunday night time, giving the Seahawks a 27-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings and their first 5-0 begin in franchise historical past.

Wilson tossed three landing passes, together with two to Metcalf, to offer him 19 on the season. That is one shy of Peyton Manning’s document for essentially the most in NFL historical past via a workforce’s first 4 video games. This was the thirty fourth game-winning drive he is led within the fourth quarter or time beyond regulation, essentially the most within the NFL since he entered the league in 2012.

It began poorly for Wilson and the Seahawks’ offense, which managed simply 66 yards within the first half en path to a 13-0 deficit. It was solely the sixth time in Wilson’s profession during which the Seahawks had been shut out via the primary half.

They rallied again within the third quarter, scoring 21 factors in 1 minute and 53 seconds thanks partly to takeaways on consecutive Minnesota possessions. Damontre’ Moore obtained the primary one with a strip-sack of Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins and K.J. Wright adopted that with a one-handed interception.

Wilson, the early-season MVP front-runner, completed 20-of-32 for 217 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.

Video games that come right down to the wire are nothing new for the Seahawks. They beat the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys in Weeks 2 and three, respectively, in related style.

In keeping with ESPN Stats & Data, this was the 14th win by the Seahawks because the begin of final season in a one-possession recreation; they’re 14-2 in such video games. No different workforce has greater than 10 wins in one-possession video games in that span.
