Seahawks take lead on Vikings with 3 TDs in 1:53

SEATTLE – It took all of one minute and 53 seconds for the Seattle Seahawks to turn a 13-0 third-quarter deficit into a 21-13 lead over the Minnesota Vikings.

Two straight takeaways by their defense and three straight touchdowns by their offense turned Sunday night’s game around in a hurry.

After Russell Wilson got the Seahawks on the board with a 19-yard touchdown pass to tight end Will Dissly, Damontre Moore’s strip-sack of Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, initially ruled an incomplete pass, set Seattle up with a short field. Wilson threw a laser to DK Metcalf for a 13-yard touchdown then Chris Carson rumbled into the end zone for a 29-yard touchdown one play after K.J. Wright set Seattle up with another short field when he made a one-handed interception.

Wright dropped three would-be interceptions last week in Miami.

This is the third time in Seahawks history in which they scored three touchdowns in 2 minutes or fewer, according to Elias. The last NFL team to score three TDs in 2 minutes or fewer was the Jacksonville Jaguars, who had three in 1:51 against the Bills on Oct. 25, 2015 in London.

The Vikings responded with an 11-play touchdown drive then missed the two-point try, making it 21-19 Seattle.
