Seattle saw a pair of 2019 NFL Draft picks carted off the field in the first half.

First, linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven left the game with a knee injury suffered on the opening kickoff.

Second, wide receiver John Ursua exited in the second quarter, also with a knee injury. He had made three receptions for 34 yards prior to the injury.

Alex McGough, who started at quarterback, completed 9 of 13 attempts for 91 yards and two interceptions. Sean Mannion quarterbacked after halftime, throwing 13 of 23 for 118 yards.

Alex Collins had 20 yards rushing on seven carries.

In addition to Ursua, Cade Johnson and running back DeeJay Dallas each had three receptions. Johnson had 30 yards and Dallas had 27.

Rasheem Green and Jarrod Hewitt each had a sack for Seattle.

Linebacker Jordyn Brooks led the Seahawks with seven tackles while special teams Pro Bowler Nick Bellore added five.

Kicker Jason Myers hit his one field goal attempt from 40 yards, which accounted for all the points the Seahawks scored.
