SEATTLE -- Marshawn Lynch ran for 124 yards and one touchdown, and rookie QB Russell Wilson threw three first-half touchdowns as the Seattle Seahawks overcame 182 rushing yards by Adrian Peterson in a 30-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

The matchup between the NFL's top two rushers -- Peterson and Lynch -- didn't disappoint, with Peterson having his best game since 2008.

Lynch ran for a 3-yard TD in the third quarter, and Wilson threw TD passes of 11 yards to Sidney Rice and TDs of 6 and 11 yards to Golden Tate for the Seahawks (5-4).

Peterson and the Vikings (5-4) had 197 rushing yards in the first half, but they had just 46 in the second half. Quarterback Christian Ponder was 11-of-22 passing for 63 yards.
