Walker's intercepted again, this time along the sideline by a diving Jordan Martin, but Houston is all over Seattle and forces a quick 3 and out. Their next drive eats up nearly six minutes, getting them an awesome TD to Cam Phillips and their first lead of the game. They try a 2-point conversion for some reason, which fails, and it's a 26-23 game.

Dragons offense has been swarmed throughout the second half. They look tired and overwhelmed by the crowd noise.

Cam Phillips gets his second TD to put Houston ahead 32-23. Okay Seattle, let's get going!

Houston's Demarquez Gates recovers the fumble, punches someone and gets evicted from the game. At least he now owns a Dragons football.

I call that a major fail. 2 seconds remaining and the game ended. The broadcast booth knew it.

I thought the broadcast booth was audio connected to the sky judge?

I can't wait to hear the explanation of this one.

Houston's best defender, DeMarquis Gates, forces a fumble to end another Seattle drive. This has to be Houston's biggest crowd of the season, and the loudest. Gates is already signing fans' towels on the sideline as the Roughnecks ice the game, 32-23.

It looked like there should have been a few seconds left on the clock for Seattle. The broadcast team makes a big deal out of it. A poor decision by the officials, who should have reviewed the play but just ran off the field. The Dragons' offense looked finished a quarter ago, but it's the principle of the thing.
