The Seahawks head into their bye week with a 5-0 record thanks to another thrilling victory, this one a 27-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Other than that final score, here are 12 numbers that helped tell the story of Sunday night's game:

0

Seahawks teams, prior to this one, that have started a season with a 5-0 record. The Seahawks had previously been 4-0 in 2013, but that team lost a Week 5 game at Indianapolis.

34

Game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime, postseason included, led by Russell Wilson. Wilson, who led a 94-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes of last night's game, has the most game-winning drives in the NFL since he came into the league in 2012.

93

Receiving yards for DK Metcalf on six catches, three of which came on the Seattle's final drive, including a 39-yard gain on fourth-and-10, and a 6-yard game-winning touchdown that also came on fourth-down. Metcalf, who had two touchdowns on Sunday now has five this season, and has more than 90 yards in every game this year.

13

The Seahawks' deficit at halftime, their largest of the season, but not one they weren't able to overcome.

3

Touchdowns scored by the Seahawks in the span of 1 minute, 53 seconds of game time, a third-quarter scoring binge aided by a pair of defensive takeaways.

6

The Seahawks' turnover differential, which is tied for first in the NFL. Their 10 takeaways—they had two more Sunday night—are tied for the second most in the league, and their seven interceptions are the second most.

Twelve numbers that help tell the story of the Seahawks' 27-26 win over the Vikings.Third down conversions for the Seahawks who were 0 for 7, though they did convert two crucial fourth downs with the game on the line. The Seahawks are the first NFL team to win while going 0-for-third down since the 2018 Seahawks, who beat Arizona while going 0 for 10 on third down.

2

Passes defensed for cornerback Shaquill Griffin, who had three last week. Three of those five passes defensed over the last two weeks have come in the end zone, including a great play Sunday to break up a deep ball intended for Adam Thielen.

4

Michael Dickson punts that pinned Minnesota inside its own 20, including two that were downed by Ugo Amadi and Linden Stephens inside the 10 yard-line.

14

Tackles recorded by linebacker Bobby Wagner and Cody Barton, both of whom, along with defensive end Benson Mayowa, played critical roles in the defense's fourth-down stop that gave the ball back to the offense for its winning drive.

3

Sacks recorded by the defense, a season high. Even more encouraging, all three came from defensive linemen and not from bringing extra pressure, with L.J. Collier, Damontre Moore and Benson Mayowa all recording sacks, two of which also caused fumbles.

364

Days after tearing his Achilles tendon that Will Dissly found himself back in the end zone. Dissly, whose rookie season was cut short by a patellar tendon injury, now has seven touchdown catches in 15 career games.
