It was over when ...
Following a beautiful 22-yard strike from QB Matt Hasselbeck to Nate Burleson that put Seattle up 24-21 with 1:06 to play, the special teams unit forced and recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, denying Carson Palmer another late-game comeback attempt.
Seattle took advantage of Cincinnati's poor pass defense, as Hasselbeck found seven different recievers for 248 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions on 24-of-37 passing. ... On the other side of the ball, Cincinnati's T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Chad Johnson each had monster games receiving. Houshmandzadeh finished with 141 yards on 12 catches for one touchdown while Johnson picked up 138 yards on nine receptions.
