The Seattle Seahawks drew first blood as they marched down the field with authority and scored on an 80-yard drive capped by this touchdown.

As you can see, number 31, Terrence Brooks is the spy on Seattle's quarterback Russell Wilson. By not applying pressure, it gave Wilson plenty of time to stand back and wait for the Ravens secondary to fall apart. With cornerback Kyle Arrington in tow, Wilson would find wide receiver Tyler Lockett for the easy touchdown in the back of the endzone.

While fans are bitter with Arrington over his coverage, it is tough to chase around a wide receiver for what was roughly seven seconds. Though Brooks is the spy, there are moments when it makes sense to rush in and make Wilson look down instead of in the endzone.

Brooks would get his hands on a Wilson throw later in the game that could have been an interception returned for a touchdown, but would drop the ball. However, it caused the Seahawks to punt and resulted in great field position that the Ravens would turn into three points to bring the game a little closer.
