Seattle Seahawks' Bobby Wagner

NFL

The Seattle Seahawks are on the doorstep of the postseason following their fourth straight win.

A blocked field goal and a fumble return sparked the Seahawks to a 21-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Seattle led just 6-0 when Bobby Wagner provided the block midway through the fourth quarter to set up Chris Carson's two-yard scoring run with 2:53 remaining. Just 18 seconds later, Justin Coleman brought back a fumble 29 yards for the game-clinching TD.

The men and women from eight African countries packed into a rubber raft late last month and set off from the Libyan city of Sabratha in the hope of crossing the Mediterranean to reach Italy.

But powerful sea winds blew them off course. They drifted at sea for 10 days before their boat ended up back in Libyan waters and capsized off the coast of Misrata.

At least 12 died. Libyan authorities managed to rescue 10.

The New Orleans Saints became the second NFL team to clinch a division title by rallying to victory at Tampa.

The Saints trailed 14-3 at halftime before Drew Brees threw for a touchdown and ran for another in a 28-14 decision over the Buccaneers. He shrugged off a pair of turnovers to throw a 1-yard TD pass to Zach Line, then scored on a 1-yard sneak. Brees completed 24 of 31 passes for 201 yards and one interception.

Michael Thomas had 11 receptions for 98 yards as the Saints avenged a season-opening loss to Bucs and also rebounded from a defeat the previous week at Dallas.

The 11-2 Saints claimed the NFC South and moved closer to wrapping up a first-round bye in the playoffs.

The best finish of the day belonged to the Miami Dolphins as they pulled out a 34-33 win over the Patriots on the game's final play. The Pats were 16 seconds away from a 33-28 victory until Miami scored on a pass and double-lateral that was capped by Kenyan Drake's 52-yard run.
