That didn't last long, though, as the Seahawks came out hot.
Seattle Seahawks' offensive lineman Rees Odhiambo had to be taken to the hospital after tonight's game against Indianapolis, according to multiple reports.
Two defensive touchdowns - a 28-yard interception return by CB Justin Coleman in the second quarter and a 21-yard fumble return by LB Bobby Wagner in the third - helped the Seahawks turn a clumsy affair into a rout of the Indianapolis Colts, 46-18, Sunday night at CenturyLink Field.
First Road Start Gets To Brissett: As if Sunday was already going to be enough of a challenge for Jacoby Brissett's first-career road start, his starting center was carted off on Sunday's second snap.
"They just outplayed us big time in the second half", Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. "Second he really connects with the guys around him and does a good job of helping those guys really learn the game". "I'm not saying it was just me, but after that happened, things went great for us".
Defensive end Cliff Avril left the game with a neck injury, and while he was feeling fine after the game, he will be evaluated going forward. The Colts controlled possession. The tight end has been a reliable target for Russell Wilson in the passing game, and he always seems to be in the right place at the right time for the Seahawks when they need him the most.
"Man, at first I lost it, " McKissic said. A vital 33-yard completion to the previously invisible Jimmy Graham had brought them into Colts' territory, and they stood second-and-13 at the 30 after a sack. They had less than 8 minutes of possession after having the ball for almost 20 minutes of the first half.
The Colts played a almost ideal first half, the only mistake being Jacoby Brissett's pass that Coleman undercut and returned for a score.
Steelers 26, Ravens 9: Le'Veon Bell rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns to seize first place in the AFC North.
Even though they've never played together, Wilson got to know Brissett through summer camps while Brissett was in college at North Carolina State.
Seattle should be able to find their groove and get their season back on track in a big way. On defense, they played wonderful all night, but stepped it up a notch.
Saints 20, Dolphins 0: In London, Drew Brees threw for 268 yards and two touchdowns and New Orleans (2-2) scored all but three of their points in the second half. His next carry went for two yards but could have been more had he not got tripped up while running through a hole on the left side.
"We do both got the dreadlocks", McKissic said.
"With Chris being banged up, we're so fortunate to have Thomas ready to jump back out there", Carroll said.
