The Seahawks ended a four-game losing streak and kept their playoff hopes alive in dramatic fashion on Monday night, beating the Eagles 20-17 thanks to a game-winning touchdown drive led by backup quarterback Drew Lock, as well as multiple fourth-quarter stops by the defense, including a pair of interceptions made by safety Julian Love.
In addition to that final score, here are five numbers that help tell the story of Monday night's win:
Yards, covered in 10 plays, by Drew Lock and Seattle's offense on the game-winning drive, which was capped by a 29-yard touchdown pass to rookie Jaxon Smith-Njigba.
Game-winning touchdown receptions for Smith-Njigba this season. The rookie receiver also caught the game-winning touchdown against Cleveland in Week 8, making him the only rookie since 1960 to have two game-winning touchdown receptions in the final minute of the fourth quarter, according to Elias Sports.
Turnovers forced by safety Julian Love in the past two games, including two crucial fourth-quarter interceptions on Monday night, the second of which clinched the win. Love also had an interception and a forced fumble a week earlier against the 49ers.
Yards on three catches for DK Metcalf on Seattle's game-winning drive, including a spectacular 34-yard catch that set up the game-winner to Smith-Njigba.
Explosive plays (12-plus run, 16-plus pass) allowed by Seattle's defense, with the longest play being a 20-yard Jalen Hurts scramble. That was a big improvement from a week earlier when the 49ers had 12 explosive plays, including four plays of 44 or more yards.
