MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings accelerated past Seattle 30-17 for their first win over the Seahawks in 12 years.

The Seahawks let another game slip away because they simply couldn't stop the other team from scoring. 

They also had a long winning streak against Minnesota end. 

TheVikings beat Seattle for the first time with Pete Carroll as coach and Russell Wilson as the quarterback.  Together, they were previously 7-0 versus the Vikings.

Kirk Cousins passed for three touchdowns before halftime and guided three clock-draining field goal drives after that to lead the Vikings to a 30-17 victory. 

The Seahawks fell to 1-2. 

The Vikings converted nine of 14 third downs. 

They also had possession for a whopping 22:40 after halftime. 

That's more than 75% of the second half. 

Last week, the Seahawks squandered a 14-point fourth quarter lead and lost in overtime to Tennessee.
