Seattle Seahawks Running Back Thomas Rawls Scores 5-Yard Touchdown at Minnesota Vikings

Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls rushes for a 5-yard touchdown in the first quarter of Sunday's Week 13 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

Thomas Rawls got the Seahawks on the scoreboard first in the opening quarter of Sunday's Week 13 game against the Vikings at Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium, when the rookie running back took a handoff from quarterback Russell Wilson five yards into the end zone to put Seattle on top 7-0 after a successful extra point from kicker Steven Hauschka.


Rawls' run capped a 12-play, 81-yard drive that ate up 7:39 of the game clock. Rawls, who lost a fumble earlier in the quarter, had his run set up by an impressive 5-yard scramble from Wilson on a 3rd-and-1 play that gave the Seahawks 1st-and-goal from Minnesota's five, where Rawls ran it in on the very next play. 

Tight end Luke Willson had catches of 14 and 22 yards on the scoring drive.
