Vikings At Seahawks: Golden Tate Scores Again

The Seattle Seahawks got a questionable call on their final drive of the first half against the Minnesota Vikings, and they took full advantage of it to get into the end zone.

The Seahawks found themselves facing a 4th-and-1 from the Minnesota 48-yard line, and Russell Wilson went for a quarterback sneak to get the conversion, but it appeared from just about every angle that Wilson had been stopped short. However, the Seahawks were given credit for a first down, and they got a play off before a booth review could be called for.

Seattle kept their drive going, and the drive eventually ended with a an 11-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate, the second time the two of them have hooked up on the afternoon, to put the Seahawks ahead.

Kevin Williams got a hand on Steven Hauschka's extra point, causing it to go wide to the right, and the score remained 20-17 in favor of Seattle.

We have just thirty-eight seconds remaining in this one before halftime, and the Seattle Seahawks lead the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 20-17.
