Ahtyba Rubin Pick, Jimmy Graham Catch Set Up Thomas Rawls Touchdown

A wild series of plays from the defense and offense helped set up a 1-yard touchdown run from Thomas Rawls in the third quarter.

It was just the second interception of his eight-year career, but Seahawks defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin's pick of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger helped the Seahawks put six more points on the board in Sunday's game at CenturyLink Field.

One play after Rubin's pick that put the Seattle offense at Pittsburgh's 37-yard-line, quarterback Russell Wilson took a deep shot to tight end Jimmy Graham, who was in one-on-one coverage down the left sideline. Graham made an acrobratic, bobbling grab of Wilson's ball as he went to the ground to put Seattle on Pittsburgh's 1-yard-line, where running back Thomas Rawls ran it in for a touchdown on the very next play.

The score brought the Seahawks within one point of the Steelers, 21-20, after kicker Steven Hauschka had his extra point blocked.
