Let's see if this punt goes a little better for the Saints..
55-yard boot & a hold on Seattle gives the Seahawks the ball inside their own 10. That's the Seahawks first penalty of the game.
No receptions for any Saints WRs or TEs so far. RBs doing most of the work on the ground and air.
Left guard Michael Bowie hasn't come out of the game yet. Used to be a time split at that spot between Carpenter/McQuistan. Definitely holding his own.
Wind clearly effecting the punt game. Jon Ryan's punt sails just 24 yards. Saints take over near midfield.
Big down here for the Saints.
And CenturyLink Field is getting louder..
Khiry Robinson comes up short of the first down. But Saints looking like they're going for it.
Bobby Wagner comes up big on 4th and 3 with the pass defensed. Seahawks take over on downs.
Rain coming down pretty hard again. A lot of blue and green ponchos in the crowd.
Marshawn Lynch looks pretty well rested, as he told reporters this week. 12 carries for 69 yards right now. 5.8 yard average.
Great job by the O-line on that last play, giving Russell time to make something happen.
WARNING: There's only two minutes to play in the quarter. Seahawks face 2nd and 3 at the Saints 8-yard-line.
Stating the obvious, but 7 points here is much bigger than 3. 20-0 lead going into half and getting the ball to start the 2nd would be very, very beneficial.
