After being evaluated for an early injury, Chris Carson got the Seahawks on the board with a 1-yard touchdown run to pull Seattle even with the Minnesota Vikings, 7-7, late in the first quarter.

Carson had taken a blow to the head on Seattle’s opening possession. After being checked out in the sideline medical tent, he returned to the field for the team’s next possession.

The Seahawks converted a pair of third downs on the drive as they marched 75 yards in 14 plays to pull the game level. The eight-minute drive was capped by Carson’s 1-yard scoring run.

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes is questionable to return to Minnesota due to a back injury sustained in the first quarter. Rhodes threw out an arm to stop wide receiver David Moore on a jet sweep and pin-wheeled to the ground in making the stop. He grabbed at his back when he eventually managed to get to his feet and walk to the sidelines.

Update 8:55 p.m. ET: Rhodes returned to the field for the Vikings on their next defensive possession early in the second quarter.

  1. This is now Russell Wilson’s team, which is okay since their defense is now mediocre. But it looks like they need someone to step up and be a leader on the defense. Wagner isn’t quite that guy, neither is Clowney.

  2. This is looking like it will be a good game. Tough defense by both teams, and interesting play calls – not just smashmouth running.

    Not sure if they really want Rhodes back the way he’s been playing this year, but I don’t know what kind of depth Minny has in the defensive backfield.

  3. Once again, the Vikings……the luckiest team in the NFL…… gifted a score. They’ve been the luckiest team for goofy plays like that since forever.

    Booger McFarland is the coolest guy ever. Don’t believe me, just ask him. Would love to have a few cold ones with him.
    I don’t want to comment on the actual game to jinx it, but anyone with the name Booger by choice is questionable to me.
