Seattle broke a 24-year old record due to how they won their last two games

Exciting and unexpected wins are always fun to watch and celebrate, but they're a bit more fun when they're also record-breaking.

After beating the Eagles with a 10-play, 92-yard scoring drive to leave just 28 seconds left in the game and the defense snagging an interception to seal the win, the Seahawks had a bit of deja vu in Tennessee as their win unfolded very similarly.

Falling behind 17-13 with just over three minutes left to go, Geno Smith led the offense down the field 75 yards in 14 plays to put them in the lead, leaving just 57 seconds on the clock for the Titans to tie it or win the game. They weren't able to do either, allowing the Seahawks to win and break a 24-year record because of it.

CBS Sports reported their performance made them the "first team in 24 years and just the second team in NFL history to have a different player throw a game-winning TD pass in the final minute of regulation in back-to-back weeks."

It's a bonus gift for all the 12s on this very merry Christmas!
