Seahawks vs. Vikings: Sidney Rice puts Seattle on top of Minnesota 14-7 after 1st quarter

The Seattle Seahawks gave up the opening score to the Minnesota Vikings, a one-yard run by Adrian Peterson, but then came back with consecutive touchdown drives to take a 14-7 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Sidney Rice keyed the Seahawk's second touchdown drive, catching a 23-yard pass from Russell Wilson, then throwing a 25-yard pass to Zack Miller. The wideout then got back to what he does best, reeling in a 11-yard toss from Russell Wilson for the go-ahead score. It was all Sidney Rice, all the time.

The touchdown came on the feels of another Seattle touchdown drive, which got them even after Peterson's opening tally. Marcus Trufant stripped the ball from Percy Harvin to give Seattle the ball on the Minnesota 17-yard line and set up a Wilson touchdown pass.

Minnesota is killing Seattle on the ground, with over 100 yards rushing, but Chris Ponder has been dreadful. Meanwhile, Wilson continues to be accurate and efficient tossing the ball around the field. So does Rice, who is 1-for-1.
