On fourth-and-1 the Seahawks looked to their top pick of 2018 to get the job done. Rashaad Penny punched in a touchdown from 3-yards out to give Seattle its first points of the evening.

Running back C.J. Prosise has battled a number of injuries over the years. But he proved why the Seahawks have kept him around when he powered in this one-yard touchdown.

Moments before halftime, kicker Jason Myers showed off his leg with a 58-yard field goal to give the Seahawks a 16-3 lead at halftime.

The Seahawks seventh-round pick, John Ursua, also displayed his quickness and sharp hands. He caught two passes, one for 28 yards and another for 24 yards, to move into the team lead for receiving yards with 52.

Quarterback Geno Smith proved he could do it all by himself, when he scrambled for an 8-yard touchdown in the third quarter to give Seattle a 23-3 lead. At the end of the quarter, Smith was 10-of-16 passing for 117 yards plus four runs for 26 yards in the game.

Next up, the Seahawks take on the Oakland Raiders in Seattle. Thursday's kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m.
