Seahawks vs. Falcons, score update: Seattle scores again in defenseless second half, 27-14

Kevin C. Cox

Neither team is playing defense, resulting in a high-scoring second half.

Defense hasn't been a premium in the second half, as the Seattle Seahawks scored their second touchdown of the game. They are trying to mount a comeback, now down 27-14.

This time it was Russell Wilson, who scored on a one-yard keeper. His run capped off an eight-play, 80 yard drive -- the third consecutive 80-yard drive of the game. Touchbacks and drives have been the story, with the Falcons showing the defensive deficiencies they displayed for much of the 2012 season, while Seattle is playing uncharacteristically poor defense.

The Atlanta Falcons are now trying to answer again. Given how the Seahawks have been able to drive this second half, they'll need to stay toe-to-toe in order to keep this shootout in their hands. The first half's 20-point lead gave them a cushion, but big plays have been the second half's MO -- and that could result in a quick turnaround.
