Johnny Knox fumbled a 17 yard pass after a bone jarring hit from safety Kam Chancellor knocked him out of the game and sent off the field in a stretcher. Knox would be taken to the hospital for further evaluation. That would lead to a six yard Marshawn Lynch scramble to get the first score of the game.
Then Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson fumbled in the end zone a few minutes later, which would be recovered by Israel Idonije for a touchdown. Jackson would finish the first quarter 4/7 for 51 yards, led by tight end Cameron Morrah with one catch for 21 yards.
