With the clock winding down and the game-winner on the line, kicker Jason Myers came through in the clutch to lead the Seahawks to victory.
Myers has been on a roll since his struggles early in the season, with four missed field goals through the first four games, one more that he missed all of last season.
Despite those early misses, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll never lost faith that his kicker would get back on track.
"His mentality is just unwavering," Carroll said. "As long as he's strong, he makes me strong. I've got all the commitment in the world to back him up. I think I said something a long time ago about that. He's the real deal, and he's a great kicker, and shoot, he showed you again today. It doesn't mean everybody hits everything forever. They go up and down and they have a couple misses here and there and then you fight your way back to who you are, and he's a fantastic player."
In Sunday's matchup, Myers was perfect and went five for five on field goals, including the walkoff game winner. And as quarterback Geno Smith said, "We needed every one of them."
Making field goals in Sunday's win extended Myers' franchise record to 24 consecutive games with a made field goal.
After tonight's performance, rookie Jaxon Smith-Njigba was one of many Seahawks' players to give Myers his flowers.
"I would label him the player of the game. He had a huge game for us. I'm happy he's on our team," Smith-Njigba said.
During his press conference, Myers answered questions about his clutch performance, but he also took the time to shine a light on rookie long snapper Chris Stoll.
"That was his first game winning snap which goes unnoticed," Myers said. "It was perfect. Just like he's been all year."
Stoll said he was appreciative of the shoutout, but noted, "I kind of want to be the unsung hero of everything. I don't want any media recognition, I don't want any credit, it all goes to Jason Myers. He prepares like a true professional. His routine stays the same all week long. Even when you have little ups and downs, like in Detroit, but he comes right back the next week and hits five field goals again."
