SEAHAWKS SURVIVE WILD MONDAY NIGHT

The Seattle Seahawks got everything they could handle from the struggling Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football, narrowly escaping in a game filled with drama.

The first half was dominated by offense; namely Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham, who caught six passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns, and got some hurdles in to boot. Both touchdowns were one-handed.

The half ended with controversy, however, with Seahawks corner Richard Sherman appearing to destroy Bills kicker Dan Carpenter on an offside penalty that somehow only resulted in a five-yard penalty for Seattle.

The subsequent kick was missed, and the Bills spent the rest of the night playing from behind. But in the fourth quarter, Tyrod Taylor and the Bills got the score within a touchdown, and drove the length of the field as time expired with a chance to win.

However, four shots within the 10-yard line yielded nothing, and the Seahawks escaped. It was a nice night for the Seattle offense and a good one for a gassed Bills team.

But the story of the night was the referees, who got plenty from both sides throughout the game and after.
