W, 32-28 @ Browns
It was a tale of two halves for the Seahawks’ Week 6 road contest against the Browns.
Well, more like 1.5 quarters versus the rest of the game.
In the first quarter-plus, Cleveland had almost zero trouble moving the ball against what looked like a porous and improperly executing Seahawks defense, which put head coach Pete Carroll’s squad behind 20-6 before many West Coast fans were able to settle in with their coffee and watch the game.
But the Seahawks always seem to manage a way to find out how to get back in these kinds of games, and Week 6 was no different. The Seahawks managed two field goals in the second quarter to cut into Cleveland’s lead, then quarterback Russell Wilson hit wide receiver Jaron Brown to make it 20-18 in favor of the Browns going into halftime.
That was one of two touchdown passes from Wilson, who also added one on the ground. And before you knew it, Seattle was holding onto a fourth-quarter lead. The Browns reclaimed it, yes. But the Seahawks got it right back, holding it for good this time.
Losing tight end Will Dissly, a rising star, to an Achilles injury stinks for Seattle. But the Seahawks rise into the top five of our NFL power rankings after the impressive come-from-behind road win.
