Seahawks 13, Cowboys 12

Wilson throws, runs way to win

ARLINGTON, Texas — Russell Wilson sprinted toward the sideline in search of a first down that could set up the winning points. The star quarterback made the corner, and the two-time defending NFC champion Seahawks found their way back to .500.

Wilson had a scoring pass for the game's only touchdown, and his key run helped set up Steven Hauschka's go-ahead 24-yard field goal with 1:06 left as Seattle topped Dallas.

Seattle improved to an NFL-best 21-6 in games heading into the bye and will see NFC West-leading Arizona in two weeks.

The Cowboys lost their fifth straight without Tony Romo in receiver Dez Bryant's return from a five-game absence with a broken right foot.

"It just feels good to finally finish," said Seattle linebacker Bruce Irvin, who had a key sack of backup Matt Cassel on the Cowboys' final possession.

The Dallas offense was held without a touchdown for the second time in five games without Romo.
