The Seahawks opened the second half with a nine-play, 74-yard scoring drive, as Matt Hasselbeck and tight end John Carlson hooking up on a 28-yard TD play. In fact, Hasselbeck went to Carlson on his last three passes – for 4 yards on third-and-1; 20 yards to the Chiefs 28; and the score. Hasselbeck was 5 of 6 for 65 yards, including an 8-yarder to Deion Branch on the Seahawks’ first third-down situation.
The defensive starters then strutted their stuff on what will be their only second-half series of the preseason, as defensive end Cory Redding dropped Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles for no gain, cornerback Josh Wilson stopped former Seahawks wide receiver Bobby Engram for a 5-yard gain and middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu rejected Tyler Thigpen’s third-down pass.
The Seahawks got another chance to score, but Brandon Coutu was well short on a 50-yard field goal attempt, after Kevin Houser’s high snap.
- 10:37 – Carlson 28 yard pass from Hasselbeck. PAT by Mare. 9 plays, 74 yards in 4:23.
