Seahawks vs. Titans – First quarter

Peephole perspective: Titans 7-0. One long drive to the open the game, an interception by the Seahawks and a trio of three-and-outs.

Player of the quarter: Chris Johnson. The Titans’ running back accounted for 45 of the 82 yards on the game-opening TD drive – including the final 6 for the score. Johnson carried seven times for 26 yards and had 19 on two receptions.

Play of the quarter: The Titans went deep on the second play of their second possession, but QB Vince Young overthrew WR Justin Gage and Seahawks SS Deon Grant made the interception.

Line of the quarter:  11-40. Johnson’s carries and rushing yards – which were more than three times as many yards as the Seahawks were able to generate in the quarter (13).

The bigger picture: The Titans took the opening kickoff and drove 82 yards in 13 plays to a 6-yard TD run by – who else? – Johnson. The scoring play came on fourth down and was the Titans’ second fourth-down conversion on the drive. The other was a 2-yard run by Johnson on fourth-and-1. Johnson carried seven times for 26 yards and also caught two passes for 19 yards.

Grant’s interception ended the Titans’ second series, but the Seahawks were unable to generate any points from the turnover.
