The Seattle Seahawks survived
a late charge by Detroit
to win 13-10 on Monday Night Football.  
The Lions appeared to be ready to take the lead with less than 2 minutes
left in the game when Calvin Johnson fumbled inside the one yard line but
safety Kam Chancellor forced a fumble. 
The ball was then illegally batted out of the end zone by KJ Wright,
which should have given the ball back to Detroit,
but it wasn’t called by the officials. 
The Seahawks are now 2-2 while Detroit
is 0-4.
