Hasselbeck, Alexander spark Seahawks past Vikings

Aug 26, 2007 - 4:21 AM SEATTLE (Ticker) -- A healthy Matt Hasselbeck and Shaun Alexander make a big difference in the Seattle Seahawks' offense.

Hasselbeck led scoring drives on four of his five series and Alexander had a touchdown run to lead the Seahawks to a 30-13 preseason victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday.

Alexander, who was limited to 10 games last season due to a broken foot, capped a nine-play, 74-yard drive with a 1-yard run to give the Seahawks a 16-7 lead with 3:31 left in the opening half. He rushed for 30 yards on eight carries.

Hasselbeck, who suffered a knee injury against the Vikings that caused him to miss four games last season, finished 12-of-17 for 129 yards and an interception.

Josh Brown kicked field goals of 28, 22 and 46 yards to stake the Seahawks to a 9-0 lead before the Vikings cashed in on an interception of Hasselbeck with a trick play.

Wide receiver Bobby Wade threw a 6-yard scoring pass to tight end Visanthe Shiancoe to cut the lead to 9-7.

Ryan Longwell booted field goals of 47 and 49 yards to get the Vikings within 16-13, but Seattle pulled away when backup quarterback Seneca Wallace connected with Ben Obomanu on a 57-yard scoring pass.

Vikings rookie running back Adrian Peterson, the seventh overall pick, had another solid outing with 10 carries for 41 yards. Chester Taylor, who is in line to start ahead of Peterson, also was impressive with 61 yards on eight carries.

Minnesota quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was 9-of-18 for 117 yards but fumbled on his first possession, leading to Brown's first field goal.
