Sep 25, 2018, 11:17 AM

The Seahawks put together their best offensive performance of the season so far in the second quarter of Sunday’s 24-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys, scoring 17 points in the frame to take a two-score lead into half.

O’Neil: As long as Earl shows up Sundays, Hawks likely to keep him

The big quarter started with a 16-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Russell Wilson to wide receiver Jaron Brown, and while Brock Huard usually talks about players, formations and plays when he breaks things down on Chalk Talk, that TD had another factor: tempo.

In the attached video, former NFL quarterback and current ESPN college football analyst Huard shows how an emphasis on tempo led to the Seahawks’ first score of the day, getting them going in the right direction for their first win of the 2018 NFL season.
