Final Score

Seattle Seahawks 37, Minnesota Vikings 30

Seattle Seahawks

Jadeveon Clowney had himself a good night, with his splashiest play coming on a goal-line stop where he beat fill-in left tackle Rashod Hill and tackled running back Alexander Mattison in the backfield for a loss. Clowney should finish reviews as one of Seattle's highest-graded players in the contest.

Russell Wilson had a pass batted by Vikings' Armon Watts and back to himself in the second quarter that he ultimately tipped forward to safety Anthony Harris for a pick-six. Wilson's best throw of the night was a go route to David Moore that hit the receiver in stride on his way3 to a 60-yard touchdown late in the third quarter.

Rashaad Penny scored a touchdown on a 15-yard screen pass after making Harrison Smith miss in the open field. Penny also scored a rushing touchdown and showed good burst to the sideline on some of his runs.

Minnesota Vikings

Kirk Cousins played well given that he was in a hostile environment and was under a lot of pressure from the Seattle defensive line. While he wasn't able to pull off the win, he did a good job of keeping his team in the game despite a number of costly turnovers. He committed zero turnover-worthy plays in the affair.

Dalvin Cook, who has been seen grimacing over a shoulder issue at times over the last few weeks, left the game with a shoulder injury and did not return after a fumble on a short run.

Danielle Hunter got a sack on Wilson in the first quarter, but the Vikings' coverage defenders really led to the sack. Wilson held onto the ball for over four seconds before finally leaving the pocket to be corralled by Hunter. Ifeadi Odenigbo also got a sack of Wilson that was greatly aided by the coverage downfield.

Xavier Rhodes had an up-and-down night. After giving up a long touchdown to Moore, Rhodes forced a D.K. Metcalf fumble in the fourth quarter.
