The Houston Texans came out on fire Sunday afternoon. With many people picking the Seahawks to go into Houston and win, the Texans came out and set the tone early jumping to a 20-3 lead at halftime.

After halftime the Seahawks regrouped and Russell Wilson led them on a touchdown scoring drive. After a Houston punt, Wilson started another promising looking drive only to throw a back-breaking interception. It looked like all hope would be lost for the Seahawks until Richard Sherman decided to take matters into his own hands.

Matt Schaub certainly had a terrible throw but Sherman made a great break on the ball to bring it to the house. Suddenly we have a tie ball game and one that has headed into overtime. With these two defenses, this game is shaping up to be an excellent finish to the premiere early game today. If the Seahawks can overcome this test by the Texans then they will solidify themselves has the best team in the NFC and possibly a Super Bowl favorite.
