2018 NFL preseason: Seahawks vs. Colts 1st half video highlights

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The 1st half is in the books for the Seattle Seahawks and the Indianapolis Colts in their respective 2018 NFL preseason openers. Indianapolis is nursing a 9-7 lead at halftime, and the first-team players on offense and defense are pretty much done for the night.

Russell Wilson only had one series, and it was a good one, as he went 12 plays, 75 yards, and capped it off with a scramble drill touchdown to TE Nick Vannett. Rookie running back Rashaad Penny contributed on that scoring play by blocking the oncoming pass rusher. Chris Carson has also looked great in his return from injury, with 26 yards on 4 carries.

On defense, it’s been a little bit up-and-down. They’ve prevented big plays but have had some issues in run support and covering running backs in the passing game, but there have been bright spots. Shaquem Griffin made four tackles in his first NFL defensive series, Shaquill recorded a pass defensed on Andrew Luck on the game’s opening drive, Justin Coleman nearly had an interception, and Barkevious Mingo and Rasheem Green each recorded sacks.
