CINCINNATI (AP) Seattle's Steve Largent on Sunday caught his 100th NFL touchdown pass to snap a tie with Don Hutson for most career TD catches. The former Putnam City and University of Tulsa standout caught No. 100 during the Seahawks' 24-17 victory over the Bengals.

Seahawks QB Dave Krieg got the offense going just before the half.

He directed a 78-yard drive in 12 plays, improvising a 10-yard touchdown pass to Largent, the receiver's 100th career TD catch. Krieg scanned the secondary for several seconds and found Largent wide open at the back of the end zone.

The score cut Cincinnati's lead to 10-7 at halftime.

"It's great to do something like that and share it with friends," Largent said. "This is something I'm sharing with all the friends I've played with."

"That gave us some momentum," Krieg said.

Largent, 35, also extended his NFL record to 175 consecutive games with a reception when he caught a 9-yard pass from Krieg on Seattle's first possession.

The touchdown catch was his fourth reception of the half and gave him 35 yards receiving, making him the first NFL receiver to top 13,000 career yards in catches. BIOG: NAME:
