The Seahawks’ second touchdown run of the game, this one by rookie Alex Collins, extended the lead to 14-3 over the Falcons in the second quarter.

The Seahawks added a field goal in the final 45 seconds of the first half to make it 17-3, and that’s the score at halftime.

Tight end Jimmy Graham is having his way against the Falcons, and a Russell Wilson pass to C.J. Spiller set up Collins’ 2-yard touchdown run. The touchdown drive covered 75 yards in eight plays.

The Seahawks have been good defensively. The Falcons have failed to convert their first six third down chances.

Christine Michael’s first quarter touchdown run came one play after Seahawks defensive tackle Tony McDaniel recovered a Matt Ryan fumble. Cliff Avril got the sack on the play.
