Seattle's offense came up big yesterday vs. the Texans.

Highlights from the game can be found here. 

Roger Sherman of The Ringer tabbed yesterday's Seahawks win as the game of the year.

*The game of the year took place in Seattle on Sunday: The Seahawks won 41-38, but Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson confirmed he's perhaps the most exciting player in the league just a couple of months into his rookie season. *

Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR says Paul Richardson has become a trusted target for Wilson. 

Sean Tomlinson of Bleacher Report believes Wilson is ascending into the MVP discussion. 

*By pulling his team out of a September slumber, Wilson has vaulted himself into the MVP conversation at midseason. The Seahawks' 1-2 start is becoming a distant memory. In its place is a team that's climbing as it usually does when the intensity rises and the temperature drops later in the season. The Seahawks haven't reached their peak yet, either. *

Peter King led his weekly Monday Morning Quarterback column recapping the game. 

*Numbers … meh. The drama of the game, the sheer drama, in such a loud place. Watching Watson, 22, duel Wilson, 28, you wanted it to never end. Couldn't there be overtime? Quintuple overtime? The college overtime? The Buffalo Wild Wings never-ending overtime? *

Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times gave the Seahawks offense high praise in his game grades.'s Mike Silver believes Watson is on the verge of reaching Wilson's level as a quarterback. 

Danny O'Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle believes the Seahawks showed Sunday they can win a shootout. 

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had a lot of praise for Watson after his performance. 

Finally, ESPN compiled the best sights and sounds from the Week 8 matchup.
