(SEATTLE) –Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson found Sidney Rice for a 46-yard touchdown with 1:18 remaining, and the Seattle Seahawks came back to stun the New England Patriots 24-23.
The Patriots (3-3) had a 23-10 lead entering the fourth quarter, but Wilson threw two touchdown passes to Braylon Edwards and Rice to give the Seahawks (4-2) the victory.
The matchup between the Patriots’ No. 1 ranked offense and Seattle’s No. 1 defense instead turned in to a stunning performance by Wilson and a shocking loss for the Pats.
Wilson was 16 of 27 for 293 yards and three touchdowns, the best performance of his short NFL career.
Tom Brady passed for 395 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions against a pesky Seahawks defense.
He had a chance to win the game with a field goal or touchdown, but the Seahawks’ defense stopped them in the final minute of the game for another impressive victory.
It was another thrilling victory for the Seahawks, who have also defeated the Packers, Cowboys, and Panthers this season.
