Steven Hauschka hit a 45-yard field with 3:19 to go in overtime and the Seahawks pulled out a stunning rally in Houston to beat the Texans 23-20 on Sunday.
A Richard Sherman pick-six tied the game for Seattle with 2:51 to go in the game and Houston appearing to just work down the clock.
The Seahawks move to 4-0 for the first time in franchise history largely because of Russell Wilson’s legs and savvy.
Wilson ran 10 times for 77 yards.
Marshawn Lynch had 17 carries for 98 yards.
The Seahawks went to Houston rated by most as the top team in the league. They will come home with several questions about what went wrong in the first three quarters.
Seattle’s banged-up offensive line had an atrocious day. Both Max Unger and Breno Giacomini were inactive for the game, forcing rookie Michael Bowie in at right tackle and Lemuel Jeanpierre in at center.
The Texans’ defensive line decimated the Seahawks throughout the day. At one point late in the second quarter, the Seahawks had allowed more sacks (2) than they had picked up passing yards (1).
But, they were able to come up with 14 fourth-quarter points after trailing 20-3 at the half to force overtime. Hauschka’s game-winner sent the crowd home stunned.
Much more to come.
