Seahawks in first place in the NFC West after latest white-knuckle win

SEATTLE -- The Seattle Seahawks have white-knuckled their way to enough close wins under Pete Carroll and have been a part of too much wackiness in prime-time games to be all that surprised about anything that happened Monday night.

Like one of the strangest pick-sixes you'll ever see. Or the Seahawks nearly blowing a 17-point, fourth-quarter lead.

All's well that ends well with Carroll's Seahawks because rarely does it start well. This one started poorly -- an opening-drive touchdown by the Minnesota Vikings and then a defensive TD midway through the second quarter -- but ended in a 37-30 victory that puts Seattle in first place in the NFC West.
