Seahawks hold lead against Lions after three

After a fairly clean first half, the defenses clamped down for the Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks in the third quarter as the teams went scoreless. The Seahawks still hold a 17-14 lead.

Detroit was driving and at the Seattle 29 when a deep pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford to tight end Tony Scheffler was picked off by Seahawks safety Earl Thomas at the Seattle 3-yard line.

Seattle moved 33 yards toward Detroit territory before quarterback Russell Wilson returned the favor, going deep to Sidney Rice but instead getting intercepted by Detroit's Renardo Silva at the Lions' 18-yard line. Silva returned the ball 26 yards before being tackled by Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch has taken nine carries for 90 yards, but most of those came off a 77-yard touchdown run in the first half.

Stafford has 268 yards, two touchdowns and the third-quarter interception. Titus Young leads Detroit with 86 yards and six catches through three quarters.


Detroit trails Seattle at half

Outside of a long touchdown burst by Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch that has helped Seattle to a 17-14 halftime lead, the battle between the Seahawks and the Detroit Lions has been one of two young quarterbacks.

Detroit's Matthew Stafford has completed 17-of-24 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns, while rookie Russell Wilson has hit 14-of-18 passes for 106 yards through the first half.

Trailing 7-3 after the first quarter, Seattle tacked on a touchdown five seconds into the second quarter to regain the lead on a 77-yard touchdown run by Lynch, who had taken his first four totes for only 2 total yards.

Detroit went 3-and-out, and Seattle used a deep pass attempt from Wilson to Golden Tate to draw a pass interference penalty on Detroit's Jonte Green to advance the ball to the Lions' 15. Wilson found Sidney Rice for a 9-yard touchdown with 11:43 to play in the half to give the Seahawks a 17-7 advantage.

Stafford responded with a drive where he completed 3-of-4 passes for 78 yards, the final pass turning into a 46-yard touchdown to Titus Young that brought the Lions within 3 points nine minutes before halftime.

Detroit ran the ball 10 times for 40 yards. Mikel Leshoure has nine carries for 39 of those yards.

Lions vs. Seahawks inactives

The Seattle Seahawks face the Detroit Lions on Sunday in Detroit in a game the Lions desperately need and the Seahawks would love to steal on the road.

But the Seahawks will have to go without seven players after the release of their inactive list for Week 8. The players missing in action against the Detroit will be: wide receiver Braylon Edwards, cornerback Danny Gorrer, cornerback Byron Maxwell, offensive lineman John Moffitt, wide receiver Doug Baldwin, defensive tackle Jason Jones and defensive tackle Jaye Howard. The loss of Edwards and Baldwin impacts the depth at wide receiver on an offense that is already inconsistent.

The Lions are relatively healthy among their regular players. Their inactive list includes cornerback Jacob Lacey, safety Amari Spievey, cornerback Bill Bentley, linebacker DeAndre Levy, offensive tackle Jason Fox, quarterback Kellen Moore and offensive tackle Corey Hilliard. Running back Kevin Smith and defensive end Ronnell Lewis were on the inactive list last week prior to the Lions' loss to the Chicago Bears but will be active this week.

Seattle enters the game 4-3 and tied for second in the NFC West while Detroit sits at 2-4 and in last place in the NFC North.
