The Seahawks finished the first half on a positive note, driving 80 yards on 12 plays in 2:48 with Matt Hasselbeck connecting with T.J. Houshmandzadeh on a 2-yard fade route over cornerback Andre Goodman.
Seattle finished with 190 yards of offense, but 170 of that was through the air. They’re still struggling to get the running game going, with only 20 yards on the ground in the first half.
Chris Spencer appeared to injure his leg on second-to-last play on that drive, where Justin Forset almost got in on the screen pass. We’ll get an update on Spencer’s status.
Seattle’s defense will not have fun watching this film on Sunday. A lot of missed tackles and poor angles on plays. And giving up 208 yards of offense to a team with a new coach and a new offensive coordinator isn’t going to go over well with head coach Jim Mora. Still, Seattle goes up ahead at halftime.
Marcus Trufant is at the game today, and looked OK walking the sidelines. Julius Jones (bruised thigh) and Lawrence Jackson (leg) also are sitting this one out.
Deon Butler was impressive in the passing game, making the 34-yard touchdown catch and another 13-yard grab across the middle of the field for a first down.
