Say hello to the wildest tilt of the day, a come-from-behind gem that DeMarco Murray Jersey saw Seattle move to 5-2 on the year with an instantly cla sic 41-38 win over the Texans (3-4). Here's what we learned from Sunday's thriller: 1a. We all know about Pete Carroll's now 8-1 record against rookie pa sers at home, but Deshaun Watson is a different creation entirely. The first-year Texans quarterback showed no fear on Sunday, drawing first blood with a beautifully thrown 59-yard strike to Will Fuller, the first opening-quarter touchdown given up by Seattle all season. Watson's fast start took a hit when All-Pro safety Earl Thomas instinctively jumped a route one drive later for a 70-yard pick six, but Watson shook off the turnover to pile up 402 yards pa sing with four touchdowns on the day. The rookie also lobbed a pair of second-half picks to Richard Sherman, but I love how Watson shrugs off these occasional setbacks. 1b. Seahawks ticket-holders have enjoyed outstanding defense at home for ages, making Sunday's performance by the Texans all the more fascinating. Midway through the second quarter, Houston had outgained Seattle 246 yards to 77 with 14 first downs to merely four for the 'Hawks. The explosive nature of this attack is legitimate, with Watson fearle sly testing the Legion of Boom with deep shots and patiently using his feet to move the chains. The Texans rookie showed full command, especially during a juicy Marcus Mariota Blue Limited Jersey fourth-quarter touchdown drive that saw him spin away from pre sure to find Lamar Miller in the end zone to put the Texans up 31-27. Watson is a rainmaker. 2. The brilliant Ru sell Wilson offered tricks of his own during a game capped by a signature come-from-behind drive by the Seahawks star quarterback. After throwing a killer pick with 5:37 remaining and Houston up 38-34, Wilson authored a marvelous three-play, 80-yard touchdown drive capped by his 18-yard scoring strike to tight end Jimmy Graham to put the game away. It was another reminder of Wilson's unique, magical abilities. The veteran unfurled Corey Davis Jersey a catalog of sensational throws against Houston's wanting secondary, to sing a pair of scoring bullets to Paul Richardson and a 53-yard bomb to receiver Tanner McEvoy during a game that saw both teams combine for 79 points, 988 yards and five lead changes. Wilson's efforts are even more impre sive as he's doing this for an offense utterly bereft of a ground game. 3. Everything has been written about DeAndre Hopkins, but the Texans wideout showed again on Sunday how he can hang with any cover man in the league. Hopkins finished with 224 yards off eight receptions and made one of the toughest catches you'll see all Men's Marcus Mariota Legend Jersey year, pausing his body mid-stride to shift, fall backwards and catch a pa s from Watson behind a twisting Richard Sherman. Hopkins then took the game in his own hands with a blazing 72-yard touchdown from Watson that put the Texans up 38-34 with four-plus minutes to play. His handiwork was nearly overshadowed, though, by Fuller's two-touchdown romp, giving the deep threat an NFL-leading seven scores off just 13 catches this season: Since 1991, no player has reached 7 receiving touchdowns on fewer receptions in a season Tennessee Titans Game Jersey than Will Fuller pic.twitter.com/SdoI1ubM6N NFL Research (@NFLResearch) October 29, 2017 4. Seattle's ground game was suspect, with Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and J.D. McKi sic combining for minus yardage with le s than seven minutes left in the game. Finishing with just 33 yards at 1.6 yards per pop, Seattle's flat-lining running attack better turn it around in a hurry for any chance of a deep playoff run.
