Tevin Coleman started in place of injured running back Devonta Freeman and finished with 43 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. They have also been one of the most hard teams to beat in Seattle, but have now lost their last two home games.

Survived by his wife and two children, Bhowmik's murder is the second incident in past two months in which a journalist has been murdered in Tripura.

One TSR constable has been arrested in this connection, the SP said. "Sudip died on the spot", Subal Dey, editor of Syandan Patrika, a leading Bengali newspaper of Agartala told The Indian Express.

On September 20, Santanu Bhowmik, 28, was hacked to death while covering a clash between two rival tribal groups at Mandai, about 35 km from Agartala. Surprisingly, the journalist was taken to GB Pant Hospital here at around 2.30 p.m where doctors declared him brought dead. The decision came after the delegation of the management committee of Agartala Press Club requested Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar for a fast-track court for the trial. The Left Front government is yet to accept the scribes' organisations demand for a CBI investigation into the killing of Santanu Bhowmick much to the chagrin of the community.
