Seahawks hold off winless Raiders

SEATTLE -- Marshawn Lynch rushed for two first-half touchdowns, Bruce Irvin tipped and intercepted Derek Carr's pass and returned it 35 yards for another score and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Oakland Raiders 30-24 on Sunday.

After a tumultuous previous month, the Seahawks (5-3) won their second straight behind a strong first half, three field goals from Steven Hauschka and a defense that made Carr look like a rookie much of the afternoon.

Not all was perfect for Seattle. Russell Wilson struggled through one of his worst passing games and the Seahawks failed to capitalize on numerous chances to rout the winless Raiders.

Seattle led 24-3 at halftime only to see the Raiders score on a blocked punt for a touchdown and two Mychal Rivera TD catches to pull within six in the final minutes.

Lynch finished with 67 yards rushing and another 76 receiving as the Seahawks handed Oakland (0-8) its 14th straight loss dating to last season.
