Seahawks running back Christine Michael powered through traffic for a 9-yard touchdown to give the Seahawks over the Falcons a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter.

It’s raining in Seattle, and both defenses have been good early. Michael’s touchdown run came one play after Seahawks defensive tackle Tony McDaniel recovered a Matt Ryan fumble. Cliff Avril got the sack on the play.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is off to a 5-of-6 start for 40 yards. Michael has six carries for 35 yards on three possessions.

    Pass defense looks solid. So far so good.
