NFL Dawgs Week 12: Big Day From Kearse Carries Seahawks To Key Win

The Seahawks move a game over .500 with an important win over Pittsburgh thanks in part to an offensive outburst from former Dawg Jermaine Kearse. Get all the details and much more on week 12 in this edition of NFL Dawgs.

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.

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.

Texans remain in first with lopsided win over Saints

The Houston Texans (6-5) remained in a AFC South first place tie with the Indianapolis Colts with a 24-6 victory over the New Orleans Saints (4-7). Ex-Husky Chris Polk had six receptions for 21 yards and a six yard reception for the Texans in the victory. Hau'oli Kikaha had three tackles against Houston for the Saints in the losing effort.

Former Huskies help Redskins defense hold off Giants

A pair of ex-Huskies, Dashon Goldson and Mason Foster helped the Washington Redskins (5-6) hold off the New York Giants (5-6) to move into a first place tie in the NFC East. Goldson continued to add to what has already been a solid 2015 campaign, contributing 7 tackles in the victory. Foster had one tackle for a 'Skins defense that held the Giants off the board until the fourth quarter of their 20-14 victory.
