Seahawks defeat Texans in crazy offensive outburst
The Houston Texans and the Seattle Seahawks would trade scoring punches all afternoon long, just like a boxing match. At the end of the day though, Russell Wilson's 18-yard touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham with 26 seconds remaining in regulation would be the difference in a 41-38 win for the Seahawks.
Jimmy Graham finished with four receptions for 39 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Russell Wilson completed 26-of-41 passes for 452 yards 4 touchdowns and an interception.
In the first quarter, DeShaun Watson threw a 59-yard touchdown pass to Will Fuller V. Later in the first, Watson threw an interception to Earl Thomas and he returned it 78 yards to the house. Lamar Miller scored on a 3-yard touchdown run on the next drive for the Texans. Seattle would respond with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Paul Richardson from Wilson.
In the second quarter, Watson threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Fuller V. Fuller finished with five receptions for 125 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Paul Richardson caught a touchdown pass later in the second-quarter from Russell Wilson. He finished with six receptions for 105 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
With the Texans trailing 27-24 in the fourth quarter, Watson threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Lamar Miller. Miller finished with three receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 54 yards on 21 carries and a touchdown. Seattle responded with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham.
DeAndre Hopkins caught a screen pass in the fourth-quarter and he took it 72 yards to the house. Hopkins scored with 5:01 remaining in regulation, and he finished with 8 receptions for 224 yards receiving and a touchdown.
Watson completed 19-of-30 passes for 402 yards 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. He also rushed for 67 yards on 8 carries.
Houston had a chance to seal the game on a third down with under two minutes remaining, but they failed to do so. That eventually led to Seattle's game-winning touchdown. The Texans had one last opportunity after that too, but DeShaun Watson threw an interception to Richard Sherman.
The Texans will head home to face the Indianapolis Colts (2-5) next Sunday and the Seahawks will host the Washington Redskins (3-4) on the same day.
