SEATTLE (AP) — When the calendar turns to November, Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks get going.

In each of the past five seasons, the Seahawks have posted a winning record once November arrives. Since 2012 when Russell Wilson landed in Seattle, the Seahawks are a combined 28-6 over the final two months of the regular season.

With that history, the Seahawks are looking to start another second-half run when they host the Buffalo Bills on Monday night.

Seattle is in the unfamiliar situation of going two straight weeks without a win after a tie that felt like a loss two weeks ago, followed by last week's loss at New Orleans.

The previous time Seattle went three straight games without a win was the 2011 season — also the most recent time the Seahawks didn't make the playoffs.

But this matchup — the first time Buffalo is traveling to Seattle since 2004 — has even more importance for the Bills. Having dropped two straight after a promising 4-2 start, including last week's home loss to New England, the Bills don't have much leeway left.
