NFL Week 6: Upsets- Titans, Lions and Seahawks
Wilson leads Seattle past Patriots 24-23
SEATTLE (AP) — Russell Wilson found Sidney Rice behind the secondary for a 46-yard touchdown with 1:18 remaining, and the Seattle Seahawks rallied for 14 points in the final 7:31 to stun the New England Patriots 24-23 Sunday.
The matchup between the Patriots’ No. 1 ranked offense and Seattle’s No. 1 defense instead turned in to a starring performance for Wilson — and a shocking rally.
Wilson hit Braylon Edwards on fourth down for a 10-yard TD to get the Seahawks’ within 23-17. After a pair of holds by Seattle’s defense, Wilson found Rice open on a double move. Steven Hauschka’s extra point gave Seattle the lead.
Tom Brady and the Patriots (3-3) were then stopped on fourth down at their 28 when Wes Welker came up 2 yards short, and the Seahawks (4-2) were able to celebrate the unlikely comeback.
Lions rally to beat Eagles 26-23 in OT
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jason Hanson kicked a 45-yard field goal in overtime and the Detroit Lions rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 26-23 on Sunday.
Held in check most of the game, Matthew Stafford led Detroit to 17 points in the fourth quarter. He threw a TD pass and ran for a score.
Detroit had two shots from the Eagles 1 after a pass interference penalty on Colt Anderson with 13 seconds left in regulation. But Stafford misfired on both passes and Hanson kicked a 19-yard field goal to send it to overtime.
The Lions (2-3) sacked Michael Vick on the first two plays of the extra quarter, forced a punt out of the end zone and started at midfield.
Stafford hit Calvin Johnson for a 17-yard gain to the Eagles 27 on first-and-20. A few plays later, Hanson nailed the game-winner.
The Eagles (3-3) head into their bye week with two straight losses.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — After a 1-4 start, Tennessee Titans Coach Mike Munchak has his team back on a winning track. Before last night’s 26-23 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Munchak told his players the story of the 1993 Houston Oilers who ran off 11 straight wins and reached the playoffs despite starting 1-4. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck says now the Titans have a chance to write their own history. The Steelers, meanwhile, drop to 2-3.
