During their 4-2 start, the Seattle Seahawks won games with a mostly dominant defense while their inconsistent offense did just enough. Those roles were reversed Sunday at CenturyLink Field, where the Seahawks beat the Houston Texans in a 41-38 shootout that was every bit as wild as the final score suggests.
Deshaun Watson beat Seattle with big plays in the passing game and with his legs en route to 21 first-half points, which was more than what the Seahawks had allowed in all four quarters of five of their first six games. Houston’s 38 points were five more than what Seattle had allowed on defense in their last three games combined.
When it seemed like the Seahawks were about to suffer their first home loss to a rookie quarterback since 2011, their offense delivered the winning drive in the final two minutes. Russell Wilson found Paul Richardson for a 48-yard gain and then threw his fourth touchdown pass of the game to tight end Jimmy Graham to put the Seahawks ahead.
