Earl Thomas delivers interception for the Seahawks, their first

The Seahawks were missing Kam Chancellor the first two games of the season, but they’ve also been missing their ability to create turnovers beyond that time.

Safety Earl Thomas just changed that, and ending a surprising slide for the Seahawks.

Picking off Andy Dalton in the end zone marked the first interception of the season for Seattle, as hard as that might be to believe.

Thomas jumped an Andy Dalton pass which was intended for A.J. Green, and might have had a touchdown but for some hustling by the Bengals wideouts and a penalty on Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.

But after a long turnover drought, they’ll take that, as they were able to get a field goal out of the ensuing possession for a 10-7 halftime lead over the Bengals.
