Blair Walsh missed a 27-yard potential game winning field-goal with 22 seconds to play as the Seattle Seahawks escaped Minneapolis with a 10-9 victory. Walsh was having an MVP like day connecting on field goals of 22, 43 and 47-yards helping guide the Vikings to a 9-0 fourth quarter lead.
The momentum swung in the Seahawks favor when a shotgun snap sailed past Russell Wilson and he not only managed to recover it, but in Houdini-like fashion, avoided the sack and found Tyler Lockett on a crossing route for the improbable 35-yard reception. Two plays later, Wilson hit Doug Baldwin for a 3-yard touchdown cutting the score to 9-7.
On the Vikings’ following possession, Adrian Peterson fumbled after making a catch out of the backfield which led to a Seattle seven play drive capped off by a Steven Hauschka 46-yard game winning field goal with 8:09 to play.
