A weekend of close games

The Seahawks' 13-10 victory over the Lions on Monday night was the eighth NFL game decided by three or fewer points in Week Four, the highest in one week since Week Three of the 2011 season when nine games were won by a field goal or less.

Seahawks extend MNF winning streak

The Seahawks have won their last 10 games on Monday Night Football, the second-longest winning streak streak in the 46-year history of the series. The Raiders won 14 consecutive MNF games from 1975 to 1981.

Wilson and Seahawks strong at home

Russell Wilson, who has never missed a start since joining the Seahawks in 2012, improved to 24-2 (.923) at home. That ties Seattle with the Broncos for the best home record in the league over the last four seasons.

The Seahawks, who shut out the Bears in Seattle last week, are the first NFL team in six years to allow 10 or fewer points over its first two home games of a season. In 2009, the 49ers started 2-0 at home, by defeating the Seahawks, 23-10, and blanking the Rams, 35-0.
