Seahawks slip past Bills, 31-25
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.
