Oct 15, 2018, 12:12 PM | Updated: 1:31 pm

It had been over two years since the Seattle Seahawks had scored a touchdown on their opening drive of a game. All it took was a trip to London to end the drought.

Seahawks takeaways: Clark leads potent pass rush in 27-3 win

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks’ offense put together a 14-play, 82-yard scoring drive to get things going in Sunday’s 27-3 win over the Oakland Raiders at Wembley Stadium, capping things off with a 5-yard pass from Wilson to wide receiver Jaron Brown in the end zone (watch here). It was the first time since Sept. 25, 2016 that the Seahawks put a touchdown on the board in their first series.

To honor the occasion, former NFL quarterback and current ESPN college football analyst Brock Huard breaks down that touchdown catch by Brown in this week’s edition of Chalk Talk.
