The Seattle Seahawks rallied from a 20-6 deficit in the 2nd quarter to beat Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns by a score of 32-28. The come from behind victory showed the mettle of a veteran team and its leader Russell Wilson’s knack for clutch performance.

The Hawks defense was torched in the 1st quarter but they showed some grit in causing 4 turnovers on the game. A Ziggy Ansah forced fumble, 3 interceptions and a blocked punt halted the Browns momentum time and time again giving the offense opportunities to chip away at the 14 point lead by Cleveland.

Russell Wilson added to his amazing season with another fantastic game with 23-33 passing for 295 yards and two touchdowns (and one more on the ground). Wilson failed to throw an interception putting this QB rating at 124 on the year.  Of his TDs, none were more dramatic than the pinpoint pass to Jarron Brown in the corner of the endzone as a Browns linebacker with bad intentions crushed Russell as he got rid of the ball.

”If we want to be a championship team, we have to win these types of game,” Wilson said.

The Hawks ground game looked amazing as Chris Carson would put up 24 attempts for 124 yards rushing marking his 3rd straight game with 100+ yards.

The Seahawks got some bad news as Will Dissly left the game with an Achilles injury. The Hawks were already down OT Duane Brown and this injury will have lasting impact. Excuse the Browns for not having any sympathy as their star QB Baker Mayfield left the game with a hip injury. He would return and not miss any snaps, but it was clear he was hobbled for much for the game.

A wacky set of events occurred late in the game as the Browns had 4th and goal from the 2 yard line and went for it. On the previous play the Browns appeared to have broken the plane of the endzone and they consequently challenged the play.  The challenge came as RB Nick Chubb looked to have a clear scoring opportunity. As Browns coach Freddy Kitchens had thrown the flag, the potential TD was waved off for the review. Cleveland lost the call and ran the 4th down again—this time the Seahawks were ready for Chubb stuffing him at the 1 yard line.
