The Seattle Seahawks held off a fighting Tennessee Titans squad at home to improve to 5-1 on the season.

The Seattle Seahawks beat the Tennessee Titans 20-13 at home on Sunday. 

The pivotal play came in the fourth quarter when Titans linebacker Zach Brown was in position to secure ball that was popped loose from Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. Brown was all set to go the other way for a touchdown. 

However, Brown was beaten to the football by Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, who played one season of minor-league baseball. Wilson spoke about how his baseball experience came into play.

He said, "I felt like I was shortstop again. I got the big hop and went and got it. That's what they teach you in baseball." 

For his part, the frustrated Brown said he was thinking touchdown had Wilson not gotten in the way. He stated,"I was thinking about scoring before I scooped the ball. It was a touchdown for sure. I'm not letting Russell Wilson tackle me." 

The Titans had their share of problems with Ryan Fitzpatrick, who threw for 171 yards on 17-of-29 passing. They didn't score an offensive touchdown -- the only one they scored was a defensive one off a fumble by Chris Maragos which was scooped up by Tennessee cornerback Jason McCourty in the second quarter. 

McCourty then returned the ball 77 yards the other way to put the Titans up 10-7 at the half. 

For the game, Fitzpatrick also threw two interceptions. One of these was courtesy of the Seahawks All-Pro cornerback, Richard Sherman, who didn't fall for Nate Washington's double move in the fourth quarter. 

The Titans also couldn't get it going on the ground, racking up just 66 rushing yards which were evenly split by Chris Johnson and their quarterback, Fitzpatrick. 

On the other hand, Seattle had 151 rushing yards with Lynch accounting for 77 of them on 21 carries plus two touchdowns. He also had 78 receiving yards for a total of 155 all-purpose yards. 

The Seahawks, who won their 11th straight at home, improved to 5-1 for the season while the Titans fell to 3-1.
