Sea­hawks slip past Bills, 31-25

Baltimore Sun - - RAVENS & NFL -

Jimmy Gra­ham needed only one hand to catch two first-half touch­down passes from Rus­sell Wil­son, and the host Sea­hawks held off a late rally for a 31-25 win over the Bills on Mon­day night.

Still less than a year re­moved from ma­jor knee in­jury, Gra­ham used his right arm to catch a 17-yard touch­down from Wil­son on the first play of the sec­ond quar­ter and later used the same arm to cra­dle an 18-yard touch­down pass in the fi­nal mo­ments of the first half.

But the Sea­hawks had to hold on in the fi­nal sec­onds as Buf­falo quar­ter­back Ty­rod Tay­lor led the Bills in­side the Seat­tle 10 in the fi­nal sec­onds. Tay­lor was sacked by Cliff Avril on third-and-goal from the 8 and on fourth-and-goal Tay­lor’s pass into the end zone fell in­com­plete. Romo cleared: Cow­boys quar­ter­back Tony Romo has been cleared to prac­tice with the team.

Coach Ja­son Gar­rett said the Cow­boys have not de­ter­mined how much Romo will do, but the vet­eran quar­ter­back is ex­pected to do more than last week, when he did in­di­vid­ual drills and scout team work.

Romo hasn’t played this sea­son since be­ing in­jured in the Cow­boys’ third pre­sea­son game Aug. 25. Ex­tra points: For­mer Ea­gles WR Josh Huff was signed to the Buc­ca­neers prac­tice squad, less than a week af­ter the third-year pro was ar­rested on gun and drug charges and sub­se­quently re­leased by the Ea­gles. ... Jets QB Ryan Fitz­patrick has a sprained left knee and his sta­tus is uncertain. ... The Red­skins placed TE-FB Niles Paul on in­jured re­serve with a torn labrum in his left shoul­der. ... Giants LG Justin Pugh will be side­lined in­def­i­nitely with a sprained right knee.. ... The Fal­cons signed GM Thomas Dim­itroff to a three-year con­tract ex­ten­sion.
