Brian Cushing checked for concussion, Seahawks rally

The Texans have been smothering the Seahawks throughout the afternoon.

But the absence of one key player has allowed Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to get something going.

The Texans announced that linebacker Brian Cushing had been taken to the locker room to be checked for a concussion.

As if on cue, the Seahawks began to show some life, attacking the middle of the field, with Wilson scrambling for a 25-yard gain that sparked them.

He followed that up a few plays later with a fourth-down conversion run, and Marshawn Lynch then added an easy touchdown run to cut the lead to 20-13. The 98-yard drive was the most evidence of a pulse they had shown all day, and the absence of Cushing isn’t coincidental.

UPDATE 3:42 p.m. ET: The Texans have announced Cushing will not return.

    Best team in the NFL. I heard all the stupid nonsense about road woes, ignoring the fact that their entire offensive line was shaken up due to injury and they lost Michael Bennett.

    I’m glad Seattle won, but MAN, they need to learn to wake up earlier on the road. Spotting the other team 20 points is not going to win you a Super Bowl. One of these times they won’t be able to catch up, like what happened in Atlanta in the playoffs.

    Well, actually they did catch up in the Atlanta game and took the lead in the final minute…..only to allow them to drive for the game winning field goal….but point well taken. Go Hawks
