The Seattle Seahawks earned their first possession in a relatively unexpected way. The Denver Broncos missed a snap on the first play of the game, resulting in a safety for Seattle. On the Seahawks' first offensive possession, they managed to build on the safety with a Steven Hauschka field goal to make the score 5-0.

After the safety, a Golden Tate kickoff return set the Seahawks up in solid field position. After a short gain, wide receiver Percy Harvin made things happen, as he's always capable of doing when he's healthy. He took an end-around across midfield and into Denver territory, where he was eventually pushed out of bounds. Seattle then fought through a tough third-and-long situation when Russell Wilson found Jermaine Kearse for just enough to convert.

But after entering the red zone, the Seahawks were unable to convert another third down and had to settle for the aforementioned field goal. Pete Carroll spent a challenge trying to get a better spot on the ball to possibly set up an attempt on fourth down, but he was unsuccessful.
