Patriots vs. Seahawks Score Update: Secondary woes lead to 10-7 New England deficit after one quarter in Seattle

After an impressive win over the Denver Broncos in week 5, the New England Patriots were back on the field against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon at CenturyLink Field.

In a change of pace, the Patriots received the ball to begin this week's contest. Their opening drive wouldn't produce much, and punter Zoltan Mesko was brought on to the field even before two minutes had ticked off the clock. Upon taking over on offense, the Seahawks immediately began to march down the field. Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson completed all four of his passes, en route to a Steven Hauschka field goal to put Seattle ahead, 3-0.

The Patriots wasted little time on their next drive, passing the ball on every play and capping it off with a 46-yard catch and run for a touchdown to Wes Welker. The Patriots 7-3 lead would be extremely short lived, as the rookie quarterback from Wisconsin absolutely torched the New England defense on a touchdown drive that ended with a 24-yard score to Doug Baldwin. It was the second time of the possession that Baldwin was able to burn cornerback Kyle Arrington downfield, as New England's secondary continued to be exposed.
