Seahawks 4-0 for the first time

Seahawks’ Richard Sherman intercepts the ball in front of Texans’ Owen Daniels and returns it 58 yards for a TD that tied the game at 20.

HOUSTON – The Seattle Seahawks were battered on defense in the first half, bruised on offense and soundly beaten in every statistical category.

What hadn’t been broken, though, was their confidence – their belief in themselves and each other.

“The mood in the locker room was unbelievable at halftime,” quarterback Russell Wilson insisted after the game. “We knew that if we could just hang in there, if we could just play one play at a time, stay in the moment … and we did that, throughout the whole entire second half.”

The Seahawks turned what was an afternoon of misery for most of three quarters into a day of history, rallying from 17 points down to beat the Houston Texans 23-20 in overtime.

Now that was an intense game!
