Seahawks Stifle Lions on MNF
SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks' offense was sluggish on Monday, but their defense was outstanding in a 13-10 win over Detroit on Monday.
The Lions were poised to take the lead with under two minutes left when Kam Chancellor punched the ball free from Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson at the Seattle 1 to secure the Seahawks' second straight win since an 0-2 start. The ball bounded into the end zone and went over the back line for a touchback, snuffing out the Lions' potential 91-yard TD drive.
Before the late Detroit drive, the Seahawks had allowed just 166 total yards and 10 first downs. The Lions finished with only 53 rushing yards on 18 carries, while Matthew Stafford threw for 203 yards on 35 attempts.
Russell Wilson was sacked six times and somehow eluded several others while throwing for 235 yards. Seattle's lone TD was Wilson's 24-yard pass to Doug Baldwin with 10:56 left in the half.
The Lions are 0-4 for the first time since 2010.
