STAR OF THE GAME
Defensive end Ryan Robinson returns a Connor Cook interception 42 yards for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter to help Seattle (3-1) defeat Oakland (2-2) in their 2016 exhibition finale. Robinson steps in front of a pass intended for wide receiver Johnny Holton and races untouched to the end zone with 10:29 remaining, giving the Seahawks a 9-8 advantage. Robinson's pick-6 is the first of five TDs in the final quarter, three by Seattle, as the teams' combine for 36 points in the last 15 minutes.
Raiders running back George Atkinson III caps the 36-point fourth quarter by returning a kickoff 81 yards for a TD with 1:01 left. He also drops a potential TD pass, loses a fumble and scores on a 1-yard run. Atkinson has a game-high 56 rushing yards on 7 carries.
Seattle's Trevone Boykin engineers two final-quarter TD drives after being called for intentional grounding that results in a safety and losing a fumble. He finishes 7 of 15 passing for 77 yards and adds 22 rushing yards on 6 carries.
Oakland defensive lineman Denico Autry contributes a sack, five tackles for loss and a pass defensed. Autry teams with James Cowser to pressure Trevone Boykin in the end zone, leading to an intentional grounding penalty that results in a safety and the only points in the first half.
