Seahawks ahead, but miss opportunities in first half

The Seahawks took a 17-7 lead at halftime against Washington, but it felt like it could have been much more.

Seattle committed eight penalties in the first half, and three of those wiped out big plays, including two touchdowns by Percy Harvin on consecutive plays.

During the Seahawks’ second possession, a 17-yard Marshawn Lynch run was nullified by a holding penalty on Russell Okung. That drive eventually bogged down and the Seahawks punted.

The penalties again took center stage during the second quarter when Harvin ran around left end for a 16-yard touchdown run. But a holding penalty by James Carpenter brought it back.

On the next play, Russell Wilson hit Harvin with a short pass that Harvin took 26 yards for a touchdown. But another penalty, this time a false-start penalty on Harvin, wiped it out and the Seahawks settled for a 40-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka for a 10-0 lead.
