Minnesota Vikings 31, Seattle Seahawks 13
The Seahawks dropped a 31-13 decision to the Vikings, ending their franchice-record 12-game home winning streak at Qwest Field. Minnesota opened the scoring with a Ryan Longwell 33-yard field goal while Seattle answered back with Matt Hasselbeck calling an audible on a third-and-7 play and finding Darrell Jackson on a slant for a 72-yard touchdown for a 7-3 lead. The two teams then exchanged punts and Seattle finished off a seven-play, 45 yard drive with Josh Brown connecting from 42 yards out in the opening minutes of the second quarter. The Vikings answered back with a touchdown drive, as Brad Johnson found Marcus Robinson from 40 yards out to even the score at 10 heading in to halftime. Seattle received the second-half kickoff and on its third play of the quarter, Hasselbeck injured his right knee as E.J. Henderson rolled up on his leg. After a Seattle punt, Minnesota used a trick-play to cap a nine-play, 69 yard drive as run- ning back Mewelde Moore threw 15 yards to Jermaine Wiggins to take the lead, 17-10.
