MINNEAPOLIS -- Russell Wilson continued his recent hot streak against the Minnesota Vikings as the Seattle Seahawks jumped out to a commanding 21-0 first-half lead on Sunday.

Wilson went 14-of-18 for 166 yards and two touchdowns (one rushing). Of his four incompletions, one was a throwaway, and another was a drop. The offense put together touchdown drives of 81 and 98 yards.

After an Earl Thomas interception, Wilson threw a perfect pass to wide receiver Doug Baldwin on a crossing route for a 20-yard touchdown.

Earlier, he found wide receiver Tyler Lockett down the right sideline for a 29-yard completion. He finished the drive with a scramble, juking defensive back Antone Exum Jr. before diving into the end zone for an 8-yard score. Wilson was electric at times in the first half, consistently spinning out of pressure and making Vikings defenders miss.

In his past 10 quarters, Wilson is 59-of-77 (76.6 percent) for 771 yards (10.01 YPA), 10 touchdowns (one rushing) and no interceptions.

Pretty much everything worked for the Seahawks in the first half. Thomas Rawls bounced back from an early fumble, gaining 61 yards on 10 carries. And Seattle's defense pitched a shutout.

The Seahawks are playing without running back Marshawn Lynch and tight end Jimmy Graham. But aside from the one turnover and six penalties, it's tough to imagine them turning in a more dominating half.
