First Half Notes: Seahawks at Titans

Quick takeaways from the first half of the Seahawks' Week 3 matchup in Tennessee.

A late first half drive by the Seattle Seahawks has them behind in a close one with the Tennessee Titans, 9-7, after two quarters in Nashville. Here are a few quick hits from how the game has played out so far:

  • The Seahawks lost a key special teams ace early against the Titans. Linebacker Dewey McDonald was ruled out for the game after sustaining a knee injury on the first play of the game. Seattle entered the game without other key special teamers D.J. Alexander and Neiko Thorpe.
  • Michael Bennett made his presence felt on the first offensive snap of the game, getting into the backfield and tackling Titans running back DeMarco Murray for a loss.
  • Seahawks offensive lineman Oday Aboushi started the game at right guard, replacing Mark Glowinski, who was inactive.
  • The Titans put the first points of the game on the board courtesy of a Ryan Succop 24-yard field in the second quarter. A couple of defensive penalties on the drive negated an interception by Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor and allowed Tennessee to get on the board.

The Seahawks recorded seven penalties for 66 yards in the first half. 

After punting on their first six offensive possessions, the Seahawks ended the first half in scoring fashion. Big catches by C.J. Prosise and Doug Baldwin led to Baldwin recording a 4-yard touchdown with under two minutes to go in the half. The Seahawks had a few small highlight plays in the first half from Baldwin and Chris Carson, but getting that big play production is a huge positive for them going in to the second half as they hope to build more consistency.

  • The Seahawks defense has been on the field for 19:20 and has allowed the Titans to score three field goals, including one that helped them re-gain the lead with the first half winding down.
