The Seattle Seahawks’ attempts at a game-tying, two-point conversion nearly cost them two points instead.

Seattle had just cut the Washington Redskins’ lead to 10-8 early in the fourth quarter when the Seahawks attempted a two-point conversion. Russell Wilson’s pass into the end zone was picked off by D.J. Swearinger.

That’s when the fun started.


Swearinger got beyond midfield before he attempted a lateral to Josh Norman. After getting inside the Seattle 25, Norman was about to go down before he returned it to Swearinger with another lateral.

The Redskins finally brought Swearinger down at about the 15.
