Wilson throws 5 TDs, Seahawks outlast Bucs in OT

You know. Yin and yang.

The Seahawks' dualism, however, seems merely to serve as a peculiar torture.

Because yin: This gaudy record has been achieved against a Murmurers Row that includes four teams that are 2-6 or worse. Yes, it's around eight days till Seattle travels to San Francisco but there are some issues that need to be addressed.

The Seahawks opened as 5.5-point home favorites for their Week 9 matchup with the Bucs but the line has dropped to 5 at most sports books.

More yang: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is churning out some serious MVP vibe - five touchdowns passes on Sunday, giving him 22 on the season with just a single interception, a statistic as unlikely as Fernando Rodney pitching a 1-2-3 inning.

"He tells me", said Metcalf of rookie CB Sean Murphy-Bunting, "that I'm lucky I have a guy like Russ running the show back there". Ronald Jones II rushed for 67 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, and Mike Evans made 12 catches for 180 yards and a score. But the difference was the contribution from Seattle's supporting cast of DK Metcalf and Hollister. "At the end of the day, the "W" is all that matters", Barton said. "You have a chance no matter what's going on". Period. Thanks, NFL rulesmakers!

Yang: Mychal Kendricks knocks a blocker into Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston to cause a fumble, and Rasheem Green scoops it up and almost scores.

Rudy Boesch, early fan favorite on 'Survivor,' dies at 91
More than 51 million people watched the final episode, in which Boesch was eliminated after losing the final immunity challenge. Sharing a photo of the pair on Twitter , he wrote: "I heard the news today about my old roommate Rudy Boesch passing away".

He was, of course, grateful the Seahawks rallied in overtime for the 40-34 victory.

Yang: The kick coverage team is still nails at leveling Blitz the mascot down past the south end zone. Lockett hauled in six balls for 100 yards against the Falcons. Seattle lies 27th in passing yards allowed (273.2 YPG). Carson may be one of the most underrated backs in the league with 659 yards, fifth-most in the NFL.

Wilson, who had to take on extra snaps after starter Luke Willson was sidelined with an injury, caught four passes for 37 yards and two touchdowns in the game.

"I just have so much respect for that guy - he's a victor", Winston said. "He tried to truck somebody during the game earlier".

"As for Watson, they have built a flawless offense for him, mixing the misdirection of the read-option game with his outstanding play from the pocket and otherworldly play out of structure". He was promoted to the 53-man active roster October 12. The Seahawks head to Levi's Stadium for Monday night football.in Week 10, and their showing against the Buccaneers could have implications for that contest, especially if new Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon gets action in his first week with the club. Oh, and the Seahawks had also been doing their "due diligence" on Antonio Brown as part of their mission to become Boys Town Northwest. Coach Pete Carroll said, "He's a unique talent".

The latest ending could have come sooner, if the Seahawks had kept Tampa Bay from driving for a tying touchdown with 46 seconds left or if Seattle's Jacob Myers had made a 40-yard field goal as time expired in regulation.
