Seattle Seahawks Win Big on Monday Night Football

Written by Charlie Mitelhaus

On a cold Monday night at CenturyLink Field, the Seattle Seahawks (8-5) pulled out their fourth straight win over the visiting Minnesota Vikings (6-6-1) 21-7. The win positions the team 1.5 games ahead of the Vikings in the NFC playoff push as the regular season continues to wind down. Dual-threat quarterback Russell Wilson was able to lead his team to a home victory despite throwing for just 72 yards and an interception on 10 completions and 20 attempts. Seahawks running back Chris Carson tacked on 90 yards on the ground with a touchdown on 22 carries. For the Vikings, quarterback Kirk Cousins finished the game with a passing touchdown and 208 yards through the air. Stefon Diggs led the way for the receiving corps with his four catches for 76 yards. While it certainly was not the most exciting game of the season, the win helps the streaking Seahawks continue to fortify their playoff position in the top-heavy NFC. Up next for the Vikings is a home matchup against the visiting Miami Dolphins (7-6), coming off of their recent last-second upset win over the New England Patriots (9-4). The Seahawks will head south to face off against NFC West division rival the San Francisco 49ers (3-10) who are also coming off an upset win over the Denver Broncos (6-7).
