Winless Buccaneers up early on Seahawks


For a moment, at least, Tom O’Brien was justified.

The former N.C. State coach opened the door for Russell Wilson to walk to Wisconsin rather than foster a part-time baseball career, because he was so confident in Mike Glennon’s ability.

Glennon just threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Tim Wright, giving the Buccaneers an unlikely 7-0 lead at Seattle. It capped a 10-play, 90-yard drive, which was helped along by perhaps a thin pass interference call on Seahawks safety Earl Thomas.

Wilson has an interception early, as the Buccaneers have played a solid game so far.

Only an offside penalty negated an surprise onside kick by the Bucs, so Wilson now has a chance to even it up on his old college roommate.
