Seattle ignores excuses and comes up with victory vs Pats (The Associated Press)

Playing across the country on a short week and facing one of the top teams in the NFL coming off a bye, the Seattle Seahawks had every reasonable excuse available. ”We’ve had our struggles, but fortunately enough we’ve been on the positive side of it,” Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said after the game. Seattle’s 31-24 victory over New England will be remembered for the final sequence – one that was eerily similar to when the teams met in the Super Bowl two years ago, except this time it was the Patriots who threw a failed pass from the 1-yard line.
