Seahawks 39, Steelers 30

Seahawks outgun Steelers in wild one

SEATTLE — After spending the first half of the season hearing about their late-game failures, the Seahawks once again controlled the fourth quarter. And no one had more ownership than Russell Wilson.

"That was a lot of fun. It can't get any more fun," said Wilson, whose career-best day proved better than a record-setting performance by Ben Roethlisberger.

Wilson passed for a career-high five touchdowns, two to Doug Baldwin in the final 8:12, and the Seahawks held on for a wild win.

Wilson hit Baldwin for an 80-yard catch-and-run score with 2:01 left after Pittsburgh got within 32-30.

Roethlisberger threw for 456 yards — the most ever against the Seahawks — but was pulled with about two minutes left and taken to the locker room for concussion protocol. Coach Mike Tomlin provided no update after the game.

Roethlisberger was intercepted twice, as was backup Landry Jones. Pittsburgh tried a fake field goal in the first half, but Jones' pass intended for tackle-eligible Alejandro Villanueva was intercepted by safety Jeremy Lane, who played his first game after breaking his arm and tearing his ACL in February's Super Bowl.
