Seahawks beat Vikings to top the NFC West

The Seattle Seahawks join the San Francisco 49ers on top of the NFC West after their win over the Minnesota Vikings.

In a brilliant game on Monday Night Football, the Seahawks came through as 37-30 victors thanks in part to four consecutive second-half scores.

The defeat also means that Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is now 0-8 when playing in the NFL’s primetime Monday slot.

Pete Carroll’s men are now 10-2, while the Vikings fall to 8-4 and are playing catch-up with the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North.

At halftime, the Vikings were 17-10 up but their second half unravelled as the Seahawks reeled up 24 unanswered points and the Vikings lost running-back Dalvin Cook to an injury.

Two touchdowns from Rashaad Penny, and one from David Moore – from a Russell Watson 60-yard bomb – were enough to secure the Seahawks a huge win, their sixth straight over Minnesota.
