Russell Wilson hit Tyler Lockett for a 44-yard touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter, and the Seahawks withstood a career day from Andy Dalton to beat Cincinnati 21-20.

Wilson was 14 of 20 for 196 yards and two scores, including a 10-yard TD pass in the first half to Chris Carson.

Dalton was 35 of 51 passing and connected with eight different receivers. His previous career high was 383 yards passing against Baltimore in 2015, a game the Bengals won 28-24.

Jadaveon Clowney had a sack in his Seattle debut, chasing down Dalton along the sideline in the fourth quarter. Clowney’s presence opened up opportunity for Quinton Jefferson and Al Woods, who both had big games on Seattle’s defensive line. Jefferson had six tackles, two sacks and two passes defensed.
