On third-and-11 from Seattle's 20-yard line with 11:27 remaining in the fourth quarter, Doug Baldwin fights off a Kelly Jennings jam at the line of scrimmage, who lost his balance, creating natural separation between the cornerback and the receiver. Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson leads the receiver down the right sidelines for a 31-yard gain. On the following play Jackson purposefully under-throws Sidney Rice down the left sidelines, forcing the receiver to slow his route and redirect towards the floater for another 35-yard gain. After Golden Tate's nine-yard reception over the middle, the Seahawks were within Cincinnati's five yard line.

Marshawn Lynch got the call, taking the handoff off the left edge, stepping out of bounds at the Bengals two-yard line. While Leon Hall made the touchdown-saving tackle, Lynch got the call on the following play and walked into the end zone untouched for the touchdown. The Seahawks attempted the two-point conversion, failing on a floater towards the right sidelines in the end zone that was wrestled incomplete by the Bengals.

Still the Bengals are barely holding onto the lead, 17-12.
