SEATTLE — Russell Wilson capped a 94-yard drive with a 6-yard touchdown pass to DK Metcalf on fourth-and-goal with 15 seconds left, and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-26.

Seattle improved to 5-0 for the first time in franchise history with Wilson providing some more prime-time magic and yet another late-game comeback.

Wilson finished 20 of 32 for 217 yards and three touchdowns. It wasn’t his best performance, but he made the key throws late when it was needed.

The Vikings were inches from putting the game away with 2 minutes to go. The Seahawks stopped Alexander Mattison on a fourth-down run and responded with a 94-yard touchdown drive to retake the lead with 20 seconds left and beat the Vikings.

After watching their 13-0 lead vanish after Dalvin Cook left the game with a groin injury, the Vikings delivered a remarkable response to the 21-13 deficit they faced late in the third quarter. In the end, Russell Wilson left them crushed once again.

Kirk Cousins was 27 of 39 for 249 yards and two second-half TD passes to Adam Thielen.
