Seahawks vs. Patriots score update: Seattle leads New England 10-7 after first quarter

Thanks to a strong start by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks lead the New England Patriots by a score of 10-7.

Both teams have been able to put points on the board on lengthy possessions. Seattle has accumulated 158 yards of total offense, while the Patriots have 139.

The Seahawks got on the scoreboard first after a nine play, 68 yard drive resulted in a 34 yard field goal by kicker Steven Hauschka.

New England responded quickly, marching 82 yards down the field in just 1:46 before hitting Wes Welker on a 46 yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady.

But the Seahawks regained the lead thanks to a seven play, 85 yard possession, culminating in a 24 yard touchdown by wide receiver Doug Baldwin.

Quarterback Russell Wilson has been nearly perfect thus far, putting up 131 yards and a touchdown while completing seven out of eight passes. Tom Brady, meanwhile, is an equally efficient 9-for-12 for 133 yards and a score of his own.
