FOXBORO, MASS., OCT. 7 -- Old standby Dave Krieg and young standout Derrick Fenner stood tall against a rare New England lead.
The Seattle Seahawks scored twice in 24 seconds in the final three minutes today on Krieg's 45-yard pass to Jeff Chadwick and Fenner's five-yard run, overtaking the Patriots, 33-20.
Seattle is 2-3, New England 1-4.
"Behind at 20-19, I was proud of the way they battled to come back," Seattle Coach Chuck Knox said. "The Patriots had the momentum" after erasing a 19-3 deficit.
Jason Staurovsky gave the Patriots their only lead in three games with a 48-yard field goal with 12:53 to play, making the score 20-19. Then Chadwick scored with 2:37 left and Fenner with 2:13 to go.
"It's just so frustrating," New England quarterback Marc Wilson said. "We were right there and then something happens."
What happened were turnovers that set up both touchdowns and fulfilled one of Knox's goals.
An interception by Dwayne Harper at the Seattle 18 set up Chadwick's touchdown, and a fumble recovery by Melvin Jenkins at the New England 21 led to Fenner's second five-yard score of the game.
Krieg, an 11-year pro, and Fenner, who leads the NFL with eight touchdowns, transformed the turnovers into touchdowns.
On the go-ahead score, Chadwick said, "there were a handful of new plays that we hadn't had in before and this was one of them. I think we used it at the most opportune time."
On the play that padded the lead, Knox said, Fenner "challenged people."
Krieg completed 17 of 25 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns. Fenner, who played sparingly as a rookie last year, led the Seahawks with 77 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. He had three touchdowns in each of his two previous games.
Krieg's second touchdown pass put the Seahawks ahead, 26-20. With 2:25 to go, New England's Robert Perryman fumbled after taking a screen pass from Wilson, and Jenkins recovered.
Fenner ran 16 yards on the first play, then got his second five-yard scoring run of the game.
