Russell Wilson touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin gives Seahawks lead

After an uneventful first quarter that saw five punts between the two teams, Russell Wilson led the Seattle Seahawks to their first score of the night against the Detroit Lions.

Wilson pirouetted away from a potential sack, stepped up in the pocket and found Jermaine Kearse for a 34-yard gain on 3rd-and-12 to keep a drive alive and move into Detroit territory. Wilson came back on the next play and delivered a 24-yard strike to Doug Baldwin for a touchdown to give Seattle a 7-0 lead.

Matthew Stafford completed his first seven passes of the night against Seattle but the Lions have yet to cross midfield and have punted three times.

The Lions have kept Thomas Rawls, Marshawn Lynch’s replacement, in check so far. He’s gained just two yards on six carries. Wilson has been frequently pressured too and kept off-balance before the back-to-back strikes leading to the touchdown.

  1. Man if we only had an average Oline we would be fine on offense. Almost good for other people to see RW run for his life practically every pass play it’s been this way for a while however RW uses a little magic to avoid many sacks or this lines stats would be downright terrible.

    Smart qb play is how Seattle survuves it’s inept Oline and the same can be said for any other qb using Oline as an excuse.

  2. remember when big mouth Baldwin got completely erased in the Super Bowl?.. that was awesome

  3. canetic – Seattle is 1-2 and isn’t rated as the top NFC or even NFCW team at the moment. I don’t get your logic.. They are also playing without their top all pro rb lol.. Hate much?

  4. You got MEGATRON and all you can do is score 3 points over 3 Quarters? Okay, I’ll pat Peyton Manning on the back for those 8 points he and the Broncos got on the Seahacks [sic] in the Super Bowl lol

    Give RW the Chiefs O-line and lets see if that can be replicated.

  6. And right after my comment their o-line turned into the Chiefs and he fumbled for a TD.

    ‘Nuff said.

  7. People talking about the Seahawks barely beating the Lions forget that they have done this before. In the 2013 season, it took a field goal in overtime to beat an awful Bucs team. All good teams have to find ways to win during a season.

  8. Anyone thinking any win in the NFL is easy or should be given to a team without the game being played just hasn’t been watching very long.

    This game scared me as a Seahawks fan. The Lions have Megatron and Golden Tate and Matt Stafford… all these superstars names you never know what can happen.

    St Louis beat Arizona at home… Chicago won…anything can happen. A win is a win early in the season and I will take it as a Seahawks fan thank you.

    The offense is fixable when the offensive line starts getting some playing time under their belt the Jimmy Graham connection starts clicking and Russell doesn’t have to do everything for himself. Hell maybe even Lynch will want to play a little bit

  9. Thanks Lunchbox77! A win is a win and we will need all we can get to get a wild card.

    The fumble – not the non-call lost the game for Detroit. K.J. Wright made an illegal play but that wasn’t a change in what was happening – the ball going out.
