The Seahawks look incredibly good given their injury situation, with a makeshift line and a backup quarterback. They have gotten good play from the interior of the line, Seneca Wallace looks good -- and healthy -- and the offense is clicking pretty well, enabling the Seahawks to take a 14-10 halftime lead over New England.
The defense, meanwhile, has done a pretty good job of containing the Patriots, limiting them to only 145 yards in the first half, including 98 by Matt Cassel. As promised, the defense has blitzed Cassel the majority of the time, and though it has only gotten to him once for a sack, he has not been able to find many of his receivers getting loose.
Seattle's running game looks productive, with 92 yards coming on the ground in the first half. Incidentally, T.J. Duckett came in off the bench to get carries in the second quarter rather than Julius Jones. Jones got very few carries in practice this week.
