Late score puts Seattle at 5-0
The Seattle Seahawks are still unbeaten, and found another way to win Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
The Seahawks went 94 yards on 13 plays in 1:42 of clock time to score the winning points, as Russell Wilson tossed a six-yard TD pass to DK Metcalf on fourth down with 15 seconds left that gave Seattle a 27-26 win.
The two-point conversion failed, but it only takes one point to win, and the Seahawks had one more point and moved to 5-0 on the young NFL season.
Minnesota (1-4) led 13-0 early, and then Seattle rattled off 21 unanswered points. But, the Vikings drove for two touchdowns, both of them Kirk Cousins-to-Adam Thielen TD passes, to lead 26-21.
The Seahawks rose up, however, especially Wilson and Metcalf, who hooked up on a 39-yard gain on fourth-and-10 on the game-winning drive.
Wilson went 20 of 32 for 217 yards and three scores and an interception. He has 19 TD passes and only three interceptions in five games.
Wilson also rushed for 58 yards on five carries.
Metcalf had six receptions for 93 yards and two touchdowns. Chris Carson had a 29-yard TD run.
Cousins was 27 of 39 for 249 yards and two scores and an interception. Thielen had nine receptions for 80 yards and two scores.
The Seahawks have a bye next weekend. They play at Arizona (3-2) at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25.
