Seahawks vs. Falcons Halftime Score: Michael Turner, Atlanta Dominating Seattle 24-7

The Atlanta Falcons are completely in control against the Seattle Seahawks. Curtis Lofton picked off a Tarvaris Jackson pass at the Seattle 37 yard line. This set up a Michael Turner 21 yard rush to put Atlanta up 14-0. Seattle responded with the Jackson hookup to Sidney Rice (watch it here!), but then Atlanta came back with a six minute, 11 play, 72 yard drive that was capped off by a physical Turner one yard touchdown rush. Matt Ryan hooked up with Julius Jones and Roddy White to set up the second Turner score. Another Seattle three-and-out gave Atlanta the chance to drive down and get a Matt Bryant 47 yard field goal before halftime.

Seattle's offense has been sputtering. Other than the Jackson-to-Rice hookups, the Seattle offense has managed five first downs, FIVE rushing yards, and have converted only one of their five third down conversion opportunities. Jackson has thrown for 133 yards, but 82 of them came on the Jackson-Rice touchdown drive. For the most part, Seattle has been held in check, and they're in a perilous position going into the second half.
