Seahawks 38, Vikings 7

Seattle's surge continues on road

MINNEAPOLIS — With Seattle well in control at Minnesota, Russell Wilson raced around left end for 53 yards. Holding by the Seahawks wiped out the touchdown, so he passed for a score on the next play.

At just the right time, Wilson and the two-time defending NFC champion Seahawks have found their rhythm.

Wilson threw for three touchdowns and rushed for one, Seattle's defense didn't allow a score, and the surging Seahawks won their third straight.

"Everybody's fired up on the sidelines. It's special to watch. It really is," said Wilson, who has passed for 11 touchdowns without an interception during the winning streak.

The Seahawks had 433 yards to 125 by the Vikings, the lowest total by any NFL team this season, according to STATS.

Seattle is 5-1 since a 2-4 start and, at 312-312, is at .500 as a franchise for the first time.
