After Matt Prater kicked a tying field goal with 10 seconds remaining in regulation, Russell Wilson marched the Seahawks down the field and won the game in overtime with his 13-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett.
Eli Manning threw a critical third-down interception in overtime and the Vikings recovered the clock. But in his run down the field, Wilson passed off play action to Lockett for a near-score. But Minnesota’s Vikings stopped Lockett just short of the end zone. Then, on fourth-and-7 with five seconds left, Wilson threw deep for Doug Baldwin. The Vikings dropped into coverage with Sherman in tight coverage and missed the ball as it sailed high over Sherman’s head.
Wilson, who finished 26 of 43 for 298 yards, also threw for one touchdown and ran for another. Lockett caught eight passes for 112 yards and a touchdown.
In his 30th career regular-season game, Wilson is 15-6 as a starter. He also set a career high with his fourth 300-yard passing game. And he has now completed 91 percent of his passes in his last three games.
The Seahawks, who moved into a tie for third place in the NFC with the win, are also still in the hunt for a playoff berth in the NFC West, where the Rams and the 49ers are in sole possession of first place. Seattle has seven games left — and three of them are against the Rams.
