First impressions: Seahawks at Vikings

By Mike Sando

Five things I've noticed about the Seattle Seahawks during the nearly completed first quarter of their exhibition game at Minnesota on Saturday night:
The Seahawks have to be happy, in general, with how they have started this game. They are tied 7-7 in the second quarter. This could have been the Favre show early, but the Seahawks have made a few key plays on defense -- a goal-line stand, the fumble-forcing sack and the interception return for a score -- to offset some breakdowns (including Peterson's touchdown run following a long kickoff return).
