Here are a few links from some of the most interesting stories that circulated around the web after Sunday’s comeback win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

From Bleacher Report: Starting games slowly is becoming a problem for the Seahawks.

"Is trouble brewing in the Pacific Northwest? Despite the Seattle Seahawks’ 8-1 record, fans and media members alike are beginning to wonder whether or not this team can continue its winning ways amidst slow starts."

From ESPN.com: The Seahawks victory managed to defy logic.

"Even a 21-0 deficit to the winless Bucs wasn’t insurmountable. No team in Seattle franchise history ever had come back from a 21-point deficit. The most was a 20-0 deficit at Denver in 1995 when the Seahawks won 31-27."

From FoxSports.com: Russell Wilson’s career as a starter has been historic.

"He has 19 victories in his first 25 starts, which puts Wilson fifth on the all-time list through the first two seasons behind the Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger (22), Dolphins’ Dan Marino (21) and Ravens’ Joe Flacco and Falcons’ Matt Ryan (20 each)."

Also from FoxSports.com: Is there anything the Seahawks can’t do?

"The Seattle Seahawks fans had to be a little worried about this game. The Seahawks went into halftime trailing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21-7.Was this a problem? For most NFL teams it could be, but not for Russell Wilson and his Seattle Seahawks. They regrouped during the halftime and came back onto the field and played one hell of a second half of football."

From the Seattle Times: Golden Tate’s 71-yard punt return was the biggest game-changer on Sunday.

"But after Seattle had rallied to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-24 in overtime, many pointed to Tate’s return as the moment the game changed in the Seahawks’ favor."
