Seahawks vs. Lions 2012 score update: Seattle up 17-14 at halftime

The Seattle Seahawks lead the Detroit Lions, 17-14, after one half of play at Ford Field. The Seahawks took control with touchdowns on two consecutive possessions to begin the second quarter. It's been an unusually high-scoring affair for Seattle on both sides of the ball.

The Lions took a 7-3 lead at the end of the first quarter, but it didn't take long for the Seahawks to answer and move back on top. Marshawn Lynch busted a 77-yard touchdown run, the longest of his career, on the first play of Seattle's ensuing possession to put his team up 10-7.

The Seahawks didn't let up after that, forcing a Detroit 3-and-out. Seattle was given excellent field position and moved into the red zone on a 41-yard pass interference penalty when Russell Wilson was looking deep for Golden Tate. Wilson then capped the drive off with third-down touchdown pass to Sidney Rice from 9 yards out.

Detroit answered on the next drive when Matthew Stafford hit Titus Young for a 46-yard scoring strike on a 3rd-and-11 play.

Wilson moved Seattle into Lions' territory and Steven Hauschka missed a 61-yard field just before the end of the half.
