The Buccaneers knew they had to pull out all the stops on Sunday if they were going to come away with the improbable victory over Seattle, so they attempted just that. Still searching for their first win of the season, the Bucs stunned the NFC West-leading Seahawks — and everyone watching — as they jumped out to a 14-0 advantage with just over two minutes to play in the first half. But they really shocked the world with how they extended their lead to 21-0 late in the second quarter. The Bucs pulled a fast one on Seattle, reaching way back into their playbook for the ol’ running back jump-pass for a touchdown play. At the two-yard line, running back Mike James took the hand-off up the middle, but instead of completing the assumed dive play, James channeled his best Tim Tebow impression and passed to tight end Michael Crabtree for the six points. The play was tricky enough already, but Crabtree added to the drama as he had stumbled to the ground before the ball was even thrown in his...

Seattle Seahawks once again escape with a win

After falling behind 21-0 late in the first half of Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay, Buccaneer fans likely weren’t alone in thinking that their team’s horrid start to the regular season had finally come to an end.

Baldwin responded with a game-high six catches for 75 yards, including the game-tying touchdown in Seattle’s 27-24 overtime win.

Seattle Seahawks Need to Get the Offense Going Now!

Golden Tate touchdown taunt tantamount to $7,875

Try saying that three times fast, eh?… Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate, of last season’s “Fail Mary” fame, got slapped with a $7,875 fine for his taunting of Rams defensive backs Rodney McLeod and Janoris Jenkins as he capped off an 80-yard catch and run TD last Monday night, reports the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Seahawks rally from 21 down to beat Bucs in OT

Doug Baldwin does not want the Seattle Seahawks to become comfortable looking at a deficit and having to play from behind. That said, the Seahawks are proving to be pretty good when it comes to mounting a rally. ''We understand there is a process to it once we do get behind. We focus on us, we reconnect with what we need to do ... and take it one play at a time,''...

Week 9 Endgame: The blueprint for victory – Bucs vs. Seahawks

Seahawks keys to success Will the Seahawks uncover the pirate’s chest that contains their 8th W.  Or will the offensive line leak like a sieve leaving Russell Wilson sinking under the depths of the Buccaneer pass rush while watching the possibility of 8-1 drift at sea like a ghost ship into a fog bank? On the surface what we see is a 7-1 home team facing an 0-7 away team.  ...

Percy Harvin Unlikely For Week 10

Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin is a longshot for Week 10 against Atlanta. SOURCE: Ben Condotta, Seattle TimesFantasy Spin:Harvin, who has now been practicing for over two weeks, seems more likely to return in Week 11. Ironically, that would be against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. Harvin hasn't played yet this season after undergoing offseason hip surgery.

Week 9 (11/13) - Seahawks Win!

I understand that winning ugly is still winning and all, but I expect this Seahawks team to annihilate inferior opponents like the Buccaneers, not spot them a three-touchdown lead to start the game.  Wilson was still great, as were Tate, Baldwin, Lynch, and Miller, but the defense was oddly flat for most of the game.  Also, can anyone please explain to me why Christine Michael...
