Kearse, Seahawks shine in victory
The Seattle Seahawks (6-5) picked up a key 39-30 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5) Sunday to move one game over the .500 mark behind a solid effort from former Husky Jermaine Kearse. Russell Wilson threw two of his five touchdown strikes to Kearse, who finished with 47 yards on four receptions. The solid effort by Kearse was overshadowed by fellow receiver Doug Baldwin's 145 yards and three touchdowns. Still, Sunday's performance might prove to be enough to get Kearse on track after starting the season slow, including three games with out a reception.
Russell Wilson is getting surgical. Carving up the Steelers D and finding Jermaine Kearse for a huge 4th Quarter TD. https://t.co/ue6ydsJ6ZM— NFL (@NFL) November 30, 2015
Browns lose a heart breaker to Ravens
Travis Coons had a chance to beat the Baltimore Ravens on a field goal to end the game for the second time this season, but it was not meant to be. Coons was denied on a 51-yard field goal attempt with three seconds left, seeing his kick blocked and then returned for a game winning touchdown as the Ravens (4-7) knocked off the Browns (2-9) 33-27 on Monday night. Earlier in the night Coons had set an NFL record with 18 straight field goals with out a miss to begin an NFL career. Danny Shelton had one tackle in the loss for the Browns.

Goldson continued to add to what has already been a solid 2015 campaign, contributing 7 tackles in the victory.
