Quarterback Russell Wilson sharp against Minnesota as Seahawks capture exhibition home opener

COURTESY: MICHAEL WORKMAN - Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks unloads a pass Friday night against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Seattle Seahawks are 2-0 in NFL preseason play after defeating the Minnesota Vikings 20-13 Friday night at CenturyLink Field.

In Seattle's first home appearance, quarterback Russell Wilson passed for 206 yards and two touchdowns in the first half. He connected with Kasen Williams for a 1-yard touchdown and with Mike Davis on a 22-yard scoring play. Wilson finished 13 of 18.

New Seattle kicker Blair Walsh kicked two 52-yard field goals in the second half against his former team.

One significant downside to the game: Seattle lost offensive lineman George Fant to an ACL injury that will require surgery. He could be out for the season.

The Seahawks will play host to Kansas City at 5 p.m. Friday.
