The Seahawks scored the go-ahead touchdown with 38 seconds left to top the Cleveland Browns 24-20.
There was an element of luck to the end of the game, with Seahawks safety Jamal Adams deflecting a PJ Walker pass with his head leading to an interception. The Seahawks had struggled to move the ball against the Browns defence for much of the game, but managed to take their opportunity taking the ball 57-yards in 5 plays to score the winning touchdown.
Browns QB PJ Walker was disappointed after the game. “Just happened to have a tipped ball at a crucial moment in the game,” Walker said. “The moment it got tipped in the air, I felt the bad feeling that it was going to be a pick or something like that.”
SEAHAWKS MOVE TOP OF NFC WEST
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was happy with his team saying, “We’re in pretty good shape. That’s good. And we’re still growing.”
Seahawks QB, Geno Smith who has revitalised his career the last year and a half in Seattle was proud of the team. “Our team is such a scrappy team. We find ways to win no matter what,” Smith said. “I feel like if I can play up to my capabilities, play up to my standard, who knows where we can be. Because we’re one of the best teams in football if we play right.”
