Final Score: Arizona beats Seattle 20-16

Kevin Kolb came in for an injured John Skelton and drove the team down the field. His touchdown pass put them back on top after Seattle used defense and special teams to take the lead.

Russell Wilson drove the Seahawks down the field and they had six opportunities to score from inside the Arizona 15-yard-line but Seattle couldn't make a play.

Doug Baldwin couldn't make a fingertip grab on one pass. Wilson was short to Sidney Rice and long to Charly Martin on corner routes.

Rice dropped an earlier touchdown pass but was interfered with earlier in the play to convert a fourth-down play.

On fourth down he threw the ball to Braylon Edwards at the goal-line but the ball went through his fingertips.

Seattle lost six games in 2011 when they had a chance to win late in the game. They've already notched one such game in 2012.
