Seattle picked up the win, 37-30, and moved to 10-2 on the season. Considering they received the ball to start the second-half, things were looking up for the purple in one of the most inhospitable environments in the NFL. The team performed an NSYNC routine earlier this season. "We kick it into the fourth quarter and now it's finish time". That was the case on Monday night as the Seahawks employed an extra offensive lineman for much of the game and rushed for 218 yards on 43 carries and two touchdowns.

Linebacker Ben Gedeon's third Vikings season ended Monday when he was placed on injured reserve. They don't play the Vikings this season, so head-to-head won't come into play, but Minnesota has one fewer game against the NFC remaining so the Rams are technically in control of that tiebreaker. Instead, they looked to spread the Seahawks defense out (presumably to limit the amount of time the Seahawks' three great linebackers were on the field), with too many shotgun plays. However, the Vikings seemingly went away from everything that has made them successful on offense thus far.
The Vikings continue with 12 personnel (Cook at running back and tight ends Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith, Jr., to go along with receivers Stefon Diggs and Bisi Johnson) and return to the air. They remain winless in the division, but get another chance this weekend with a trip to Minnesota. Minnesota had won six of seven entering the game and had hoped to improve its wild-card bid with a victory. Wilson wasn't having a hot start to the game, but his ability to turn things around and lead the Seahawks from the pocket is nothing short of incredible.More news: Boost Mobile Black Friday 2019 Deals List
