The biggest bright spot for the Seattle Seahawks Saturday night during a 24-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings was Earl Thomas.

It was a big night for the heavy-hitting safety from Texas, who delivered Seattle’s lone touchdown of the game on an 86-yard interception return for a touchdown. He also leveled Percy Harvin on a slant over the middle.

Matt Hasselbeck completed nine of 17 passes for 126 yards, 42 coming on a completion to Mike Williams in the third quarter. More importantly, he left after two series in the third quarter without a scratch on him.

That was no small feat for Seattle’s patchwork offensive line against a defensive line that led the NFL in sacks last year. Sixth overall draft choice Russell Okung is out indefinitely with a high ankle sprain, forcing the Seahawks to move backup left guard Mike Wrotto out to left tackle.

Hasselbeck was sacked twice and hit two other times, but came away unscathed.
