Seattle's comeback in Houston reaffirms the Seahawks no longer pushovers away from home

On the verge of getting bounced out of Houston, the Seattle Seahawks delivered one of the best comebacks in team history.

It was a gutty statement by the Seahawks in their 23-20 overtime win. Not only did Seattle reaffirm its position as the class of the NFC, but the Seahawks also displayed more evidence they are no longer pushovers away from home.

Dating back to last season, the Seahawks have won five of their last six — including the playoffs — away from Seattle. They have wins in Chicago, Washington, Carolina and now one of the biggest comebacks in franchise history in Houston.

The 17-point comeback tied for the fourth-largest deficit Seattle has ever overcome to win. The Seahawks trailed by 14 midway through the fourth quarter before a pair of late touchdowns forced overtime.
