The Seahawks' late-game failures continued this week, as Seattle blew a 17-point fourth quarter lead en route to a 27-24 overtime loss.

The Seahawks got off to a slow start, allowing a quick first-possession touchdown catch to Tyler Eifert, but they quickly answered with a touchdown of their own. Seattle went into halftime with a 10-7 lead and the third quarter started off with some promise -- a long Thomas Rawls touchdown run was followed up with a fumble recovery touchdown return by Bobby Wagner that gave the Seahawks a 24-7 lead and they were rolling. But the Bengals weren't done.

Cincy charged back, scoring 14-straight on a pair of nice 4th quarter touchdown drives, then hit a field goal as time expired to send the game to overtime.

The offense couldn't get anything done on two possessions in overtime, and the defense couldn't get a stop when they needed it. Seattle falls to 2-3.

Russell Wilson: 15 of 23 for 213 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 pick
Thomas Rawls: 23 carries for 169 yards, 1 touchdown
Doug Baldwin: 3 catches for 70 yards

As for the Bengals:

Andy Dalton: 30 for 44, 331 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
AJ Green: 6 catches for 78 yards
Tyler Eifert: 8 catches for 90 yards, 2 TD

Seattle comes back home next week and will face off against the Panthers.
