Jon Ryan’s run on fake field goal keeps Seahawks’ scoring drive alive

Plenty happened on this last Seahawks’ scoring drive that put them up 24-10 and appeared to put the game out of reach…

The Seahawks faced fourth-and-inches in the fourth quarter holding a 17-10 lead and were lining up for a 49-yard field goal attempt. But punter Jon Ryan, the holder, took the snap and took off running for a five-yard gain and a first down. Six plays later, the Seahawks scored on a 9-yard touchdown pass reception by Marshawn Lynch with 6:31 to go in the game.

The drive was also notable because a third touchdown by Percy Harvin was wiped out by a penalty. This time, it was a 41-yard pass play from Russell Wilson to Harvin that was brought back because of an unnecessary roughness penalty on James Carpenter.

Also on this drive: Max Unger suffered a foot injury and will not return to the game. Stephen Schilling took his place for the final three plays of the drive. We’ll have more on this injury after the game.

And finally: Russell Wilson set a career high for rushing yards on this drive and set the “Monday Night Football” record for most rushing yards by a quarterback.
