Michael Robinson forced Felix Jones to fumble on the opening kickoff, leading to a short field goal, and Malcolm Smith blocked Chris Jones' punt which Jeron Johnson returned for a touchdown to give Seattle (1-1) a 10-0 lead in less than 5 minutes.

Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 151 yards and directed a 90-yard scoring drive in the third quarter, capped by a 22-yard touchdown strike to Anthony McCoy, to give Seattle a 20-7 lead.

Tony Romo threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Miles Austin in the second quarter, but that was the only sustained drive the Cowboys (1-1) could mount on the Seahawks' stout defense.
