Seahawks Edge Buccaneers 27-24 In Overtime

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(SEATTLE) -- It wasn't pretty, but the Seattle Seahawks were able to get the job done.

Steven Hauschka drilled a 27-yard field goal in overtime, and the Seahawks overcame a 21-point deficit to defeat the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-24 on Sunday.

"That was a huge win. You think about the deficit we were under and to be able to comeback in that fashion ... that's big time," quarterback Russell Wilson said.

Trailing 21-7 at halftime, Wilson led the Seahawks (8-1) on three scoring drives to tie the game at 24.  He hit Doug Baldwin for a 10-yard touchdown pass with 1:51 to play in regulation to force overtime.

The Buccaneers (0-8) received a stellar effort from rookie Mike Glennon.  He completed 17 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.  Mike James rushed for a career-high 158 yards filling in for the injured Doug Martin.
