Final: Seahawks 24, Patriots 23

Published on October 14, 2012 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

CenturyLink Field remains home, sweet, home for Seattle.

Down 23-10 in the third quarter, the Seahawks scored 14 unanswered points to remain unbeaten at home, surprising the New England Patriots 24-23 this afternoon.

Trailing 23-16 with 2:38 left, the Seahawks had one, last shot to claim the lead on their final drive of the game.

Seattle received a boost in field position after a 25-yard punt return by Leon Washington. Starting on their own 43-yard line, Seattle quickly marched into New England territory

Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson came through with the game-winning score, hitting receiver Sidney Rice for a 46-yard touchdown pass for the victory.

The Seahawks left talented New England quaterback Tom Brady 1:18 on the clock, but Seattle’s defense shut the Patriots down, tackling receiver Wes Welker short of a first down on fourth and 17 from the 13-yard line, and the Seahawks took over on down on New England’s 28-yard line.

Wilson kneeled down twice for the win.

Wilson once again played well, completing 16 of 27 passes for 293 yards and three touchdown passes in a loss.

New England quarterback Tom Brady played for the first time at CenturyLink Field on Sunday.

And he felt right at home, carving up the Seattle for 395 yards and two touchdown passes. But Brady also had two costly interceptions.

New England’s defense did a nice job bottling up Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch, holding him to a season-low 41 yards on 15 carries.

Seattle improved to 4-2 on the year, while the Patriots fell to 3-3.
