Continued: Vikings, quarterbacks get jarred, feathered by Seahawks

The Vikings interception parade came on the same day that their former star receiver Percy Harvin made his Seahawks debut after missing the first 10 games following hip surgery. Harvin hugged a number of his former teammates, coaches and team employees during early warmups. Then he provided several Percy plays.

His first catch was highlight-worthy. Russell Wilson lobbed a pass over Chris Cook’s head and Harvin tipped the ball to himself for a 17-yard catch.

Harvin changed the game with his first kickoff return for the Seahawks late in the first half. After Blair Walsh’s 45-yard field goal with 48 seconds left cut Seattle’s lead to 17-13, the Vikings decided to kick it deep to Harvin, who fielded it 4 yards deep in the end zone. A Pro Bowl returner with the Vikings, Harvin gave his new team a glimpse of his magic with a 58-yard runback.

The Seahawks capitalized on that field position as Wilson threaded a perfect pass to Doug Baldwin with two Vikings defenders draped on him for a 19-yard touchdown pass with 10 seconds remaining.

Frazier defended his decision to put the ball in Harvin’s hands.

“We thought we could cover the kick,” Frazier said. “We didn’t, and they ended up with great field position and ended up scoring. Big sequence.”

Big, yes, but not anything compared to what happened at the start of the fourth quarter when the Vikings went pick-pick-pick. And now their quarterback quandary continues.
