SEATTLE, WA — A back and forth thriller between Arizona, and Seattle ended in a 34-34 tie after four quarters. In OT, the Seahawks won the toss and elected to receive — then proceeded to drive 77 yards in 8 plays capped by an 8-yard run up the middle by Chris Carson to end the game, 40-34.
It was a banner day for Seattle’s rushing game, amassing 266 yards and four touchdowns. Carson scored three of the four with Russel Wilson scoring his 10th of the season. Wilson (23-34, 297 yards, 1 INT) also threw for a score.
Kyler Murray proved he’ll be a menace for years to come, throwing for 4 touchdown passes. Seattle is glad to have won the OT coin flip, since the defense had a hard time containing Murray who led his team to take a 3 point lead with less than a minute resining in the fourth.
But, it was Wilson’s performance that saved Seattle from their fifth loss. After Murray gave Arizona the lead (34-31) with 0:30 to play, Wilson drove the Seahawks into field goal position within a three-play drive (fueled by 53 rushing yards by Wilson). Jason Myers’ 36-yard field goal as time expired tied the game 34-34.
