The Seattle Seahawks used two big touchdown runs from Marshawn Lynch and a 49-yard field goal in the final minutes of the first half to give themselves a 17-7 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Lynch is well on his way to a stellar performance, racking up 90 rushing yards on just 11 carries. The Eagles have had no answer for the shifty running back, although he was battling stomach pains towards the end of the half. Tarvaris Jackson has played surprisingly well, completing nine of his twelve passes for 143 yards. Most notably, Seattle did not have a turnover in the first 30 minutes of play.
The Eagles are struggling without Michael Vick and it was been a struggle with Vince Young at the helm. Young completed just five passes in the half for 86 yards and threw an interception while the team was driving. LeSean McCoy has been the only consistent player offensively for Philadelphia, rushing for 36 yards and a touchdown. DeSean Jackson continues to be a non-factor and is completely out of sync with the backup quarterback.
