SALT LAKE CITY — After a mid-season struggle, the Seattle Seahawks are back to looking like football’s most complete team.
Sunday, the Seahawks shone once again, beating the Minnesota Vikings, 41-20. And a large part in their runaway victory over Minnesota was due to the play of Utah State alum Bobby Wagner. Wagner made nine tackles, registered a sack and also had an interception, as the Seahawks improved to 10-1.
Robert Turbin carried the ball seven times for 17 yards and also made a catch for 12 yards for Seattle. Former Weber State offensive lineman Paul McQuistan started for the Seahawks as well.

Brice McCain made a tackle for Houston in a 28-23 loss to Oakland, and Paul Kruger made two tackles for Cleveland in the Browns’ 41-20 loss to Cincinnati.
