Graham Leads Seahawks To Wild 31-25 Shootout Win Over Bills

In a game that both teams needed, the Seattle Seahawks pushed their record to 5-2-1 on the season with a 31-25 win over the Buffalo Bills, who have now lost three games in a row to fall to 4-5 on the season.

Seattle was led by tight end Jimmy Graham, who had his best game as a Seahawk, catching eight passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns. Buffalo was able to limit the Seahawks to just 33 yards rushing and out-gained Seattle 425-278, but hurt themselves with 11 penalties and a second half interception thrown by Tyrod Taylor.

The Bills struck first after a blocked punt led to a three-yard touchdown run from Taylor, and that started a trend where both teams traded touchdown drives over the next four possessions. Graham capped that run with this spectacular one-handed catch, making it 14-14 early in the second quarter:

The Bills managed a field goal on their next drive, but that would be their last lead of the game. Seattle ripped off 14 straight points, which ended with another impressive one-handed catch from Graham:

That would be all the scoring of the half, although the Bills feel they should've had three more points on the board. When lining up for a field goal with three seconds left, a crazy sequence of events happened that, well, you just have to see to believe.

In the second half, the defenses finally took over. Buffalo managed a short touchdown run from Mike Gillislee in the fourth quarter, which the Seahawks followed with a field goal to make it 31-25. The Bills had the last drive of the game and a 1st & Goal with just over a minute left in the game, but failed to get it into the end zone.

Russell Wilson also had arguably his best game of the season, going 20/26 passing for 286 yards and those two touchdowns to Graham, while also adding a rushing touchdown.

Taylor led the way for the Bills, passing for 289 yards with a touchdown and an interception, along with 35 rushing yards and another score. LeSean McCoy also had 85 yards on 21 carries, while Robert Woods had 10 catches for 162 yards.

Buffalo has a bye week before playing the Bengals in Cincinnati on Nov. 20, while the Seahawks hit the road to take on the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football.
