The Seahawks special teams scored first, the defense stiffened and the offense dominated the second half as the Seahawks beat Dallas on Sunday.

The Seahawks improved to 1 -1 on the season with a 27 - 7 win Sunday over the Dallas Cowboys at Centurylink Field.

Seahawks special teams put the first 10 points on the board, scoring a field goal after recovering a fumble on the opening kickoff, and then returning a blocked punt for a touchdown. The Seahawks never trailed in the game, but the offense never really got going in the first half.  The defense gave up only one score, with the Cowboy's Tony Romo hitting Miles Austin on a 22 yard touchdown with 7:31 left in the second quarter.

Finally, running backs Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin teamed up for some tough play on the ground. That’s when Seattle was finally able to open up its lead, pushing and pushing downfield as the home crowd got an exciting introduction to their 2012 Seahawks.

Next up for the Seahawks, the Green Bay Packers at Centurylink field on Sept. 24 for Monday Night Football.  The brodcast will start at 3:30 PM on AM 1280 and FM 99.3 Newstalk KIT.
