Final Score24-23, Seahawks

For average NFL football fans, this was a must-watch game for the offense vs. defense matchup alone. For Seattle fans, this was this season's biggest test for Pete Carroll's young and physical defensive unit.

Hype vs. reality, there's just no way of getting around it.

It wasn't always pretty but Seattle wins a huge come from behind game on the backs of three stand out players e.g., Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and of course Russell Wilson.
