Seahawks hold on to defeat Cowboys

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Russell Wilson had a scoring pass for the game's only touchdown and directed a late drive to the winning field goal, leading the Seattle Seahawks over the Dallas Cowboys 13-12 Sunday.

The defending NFC champions (4-4) are back to .500 after an 0-2 start. The Cowboys (2-5) lost their fifth straight without Tony Romo in Dez Bryant's return from a five-game absence with a broken right foot.

The Seahawks started the decisive drive at their 15, with Wilson converting three third downs capped by a scramble that helped run the clock before Steven Hauschka's 24-yard field goal with 1:06 remaining.

Seattle receiver Ricardo Lockette had an injury scare and came away with a concussion and was moving his extremities after a vicious block by Jeff Heath on a punt return. Lockette was carted off the field after a lengthy delay.
