Seahawks complete largest comeback win in OT thriller
The Seattle Seahawks were down 21-0 in the 1st Quarter to the St. Louis Rams Sunday in the TWA Dome. The Seahawks fumbled away and threw a pick in four of their first five possessions of the game. Before they knew it, Rams’ QB Tony Banks threw 2 TDs and Lawrence Phillips ran in a TD to give the Rams the 21-0 lead.
Then Warren Moon and the Seahawks offense began to heat up. They scored 31 unanswered and erased the 21-point deficit and turned the game into a 10-pt lead 31-21.
The Rams showed some moxie, and they answered the call late in the 4th quarter. Jeff Wilkins booted a kick and then with 1:30 in the 4th, Banks connected with Keith Crawford for a 2-yd scoring strike to knot the game up at 31.
The game went into overtime and the Rams won the toss. They punted to the Hawks and on the next play Moon launched a bomb to Joey Galloway, who caught it and raced 80 yards for the game-winning score. The Seahawks capped off the largest come-from-behind victory in franchise history to win 37-31.
Moon threw for 298 yards and 4 TDs, while Banks threw for 317 yards and 3 TDs. Galloway caught 9 passes for 176 yards and 2 TDs, while Isaac Bruce caught 8 passes for 116 yards and a score. Rams RB Amp Lee caught 11 passes for 120 yards and a TD.
The Seahawks are now 4-3 in the AFC Weat and will host the Oakland Raiders next Sunday. The Rams have now lost three in a row and will host the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs in the TWA Dome next Sunday.
