The whole story: Seahawks only half good so far

The Seahawks' offense has yet to score a first-half touchdown, and two of the three field goals Seattle has managed in the first two periods of the first two games were the result of turnovers.

The slow starts for the offense are reminiscent of the way Seattle began last season when it didn't score a first-half touchdown until the fourth game. If you break downt the offensive and defensive performances down by halves, it's evident that so far this season, Seattle remains a team that struggles to get going early in games:
