SEATTLE (AP) — Russell Wilson continued his sizzling start throwing five more touchdown passes. Unheralded second-year defensive end L.J. Collier made the play that assured those five TD tosses came in a victory.

Collier stuffed Cam Newton at the 1-yard line on the final play, and the Seattle Seahawks held off the New England Patriots 35-30 on Sunday night.

Wilson and Newton — two of the premier quarterbacks in the NFL — claimed the spotlight in a wild primetime showcase. Wilson was masterful, leading Seattle to a 35-23 lead with less than 5 minutes remaining.

But Newton took over the final minutes and yet another Seahawks-Patriots matchup was decided in the closing moments on a play snapped at the 1.

This time, it was the Seahawks erupting off the sideline in celebration.

“It’s an extraordinary moment for football players and for a team. You either come through or you don’t,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “There’s so much intensity in that moment. The guys on the field will never forget it.”

Newton led New England 80 yards in the closing moments. They reached the 1 on a pass to N’Keal Harry with 3 seconds left. On the final play, Newton tried to run power to the left, but was upended by Collier in the biggest play of his young career. Newton, who had two rushing touchdowns in the game, never got close to the goal line.

Collier and Jamal Adams said from the formation it was clear where the Patriots were going with the play.

“Just to finish it off it’s a hell of a play. Imagine if we had fans here today. It would still be shaking,” Collier said.

Newton was excellent in his first road game with the Patriots throwing for 397 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He ran for another 47 yards, but couldn’t get the last three feet to...

SEATTLE (AP) — The father of New England Patriots’ running back James White was killed Sunday in a car crash in Florida, authorities said.

The wreck that killed Tyrone White happened around 1 p.m. in Cooper City, Florida, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found two crashed cars, one flipped over and the other on fire. Deputies and firefighters extinguished the blaze, and an air rescue team transported two people to a hospital.

White, who was the captain of the Miami-Dade Police Department, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Miami-Dade Police Department Director Alfredo Ramirez III said on Twitter that one of the people who is being hospitalized is White’s wife, Lisa. NBC reported James White's mother is in serious condition.

Authorities did not provide additional details about the condition of the third person who was in the crash.

“I’m extremely saddened after learning of the passing of MDPD Captain Tyrone White,” Ramirez said in a Twitter post. “I offered his family my deepest condolences on behalf of his MDPD family. May he rest in eternal peace.”

James White was inactive for Sunday’s game against Seattle following the crash. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson also sent condolences to James White prior to kickoff. Wilson and White were teammates at Wisconsin.

James White is in his seventh season with the Patriots.

Seattle safety Quandre Diggs was ejected late in the first quarter Sunday night for a helmet-to-helmet hit on New England’s N’Keal Harry.

On fourth-and-3 from the Seattle 30, New England quarterback Cam Newton connected with Harry on a slant route. The rookie was immediately hit by Diggs in a violent collision that snapped Harry’s head backward. Multiple flags were thrown and after a few minutes of deliberation, referee Craig Wrolstad announced Diggs had been ejected.

Marquise Blair moved from nickel cornerback to safety to fill Diggs’ role.

Harrison Butker made a 58-yard field goal in overtime, lifting the Kansas City Chiefs to a 23-20 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Butker kicked the ball through the uprights three times at the end of the game on Sunday. A false start negated a 53-yard field goal he made. And just after Los Angeles called a timeout in an attempt to rally the kicker, Butker made a 58-yard field goal that didn't count.

The third time was a charm as he made another field goal to give the defending Super Bowl champions their only lead Sunday against the Chargers.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers needed more than four quarters to play, providing an early-season treat for NFL fans.
