What for most of three quarters was an afternoon of slumber for the Seattle Seahawks ultimately turned into a day of history.
Seattle pulled off a shocking rally to beat the Houston Texans 23-20 in overtime and improve to 4-0 for the first time since the Seahawks entered the league in 1976.
Steven Hauschka won the game for Seattle with a 45-yard field goal with 3:19 left in the overtime as the Seahawks came back from a 20-3 halftime deficit.
Seattle got into field goal range after a third-down pass to Doug Baldwin coupled with a 15-yard personal foul on Houston’s Kareem Jackson.
That moved the ball to the Houston 36 and after three more plays Hauschka made the kick.
Seattle was dominated for most of the first three quarters but used three Houston turnovers to score 13 points including a game-tying 58-yard interception return by Richard Sherman.
Houston had a 443-226 edge in yards at the end of regulation indicative of how the Texans controlled the action for most of the game.
