The Seattle Seahawks
The ‘Hawks (5-2-1) were able to hold off the Bills and win 31-25 on Monday. QB Russell Wilson finished 20 of 26 for 282 yards with two TD passes to tight end Jimmy Graham – who caught then both with only one hand. Show off. On defense, DE Cliff Avril sacked Bills QB Tyrod Taylor to squash a late rally. Seattle has won 11 Monday Night games in a row – though they were given a little push against Buffalo by the officials’ myopic calls.
The New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks
