    Week 8: Seahawks 20, Raiders 17

    After limping out the gate to a 0-5 start, Seahawks have won their 2nd game of the season, defeating the Raiders to improve to 2-5.

    Seahawks opened up the scoring in the 1st quarter on a pick 6 by veteran corner Marcus Trufant. Both offenses failed to convert 3rd downs in the 1st half but the Seahawks managed to add a field goal and the Raiders scored a TD to the big TE Zach Miller. Miller would later leave the game with a herniated disk.

    2nd half, Raiders were able to capture the lead on a slant pass to Louis Murphy. Seahawks were blitzing on the play and once Murphy beat Josh Wilson off the line he was off to the races for as easy of a TD Murphy has ever scored. Seahawks would answer immediately on their 1st play of the following drive, as Matt Hasselbeck found John Carlson open on a great PA fake and Carson took it 67 yards for his 1st TD of the season.

    4th quarter was all about defense. Hasselbeck threw a interception on a pass intended for Golden Tate. With the game on the line and in the Seahawks red zone, Jason Cambell threw an interception to Josh Wilson. Unable to get a first down to run out the clock, Raiders would get one last chance to win the game. Fortunately for the Seahawks, time expired before the Raiders could put together another scoring drive and the Seahawks escaped Oakland with their 2nd victory of the game.

    Game ball goes to Matt Hasselbeck who is learning to play within himself, spreading the ball to different receivers and not allowing the defense to key in on one person.
