Preseason Week 2 - Vikings 20 - Seahawks 7
Vikings humble 'Hawks, former teammate Jackson
SEATTLE -- New Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson saw far more of his former team than he wanted. Minnesota's new starter, Donovan McNabb, got on the field just long enough to put together one impressive drive and call it a night.
Reserve cornerback Marcus Sherels returned a deflected pass from Jackson 64 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, Ryan Longwell added a pair of field goals and the Vikings beat the Seahawks 20-7 on Saturday night.
Tristan Davis provided the capper for Minnesota with a 35-yard touchdown run with 2:09 left and the Vikings' first offensive touchdown of the preseason.
After spending five seasons in Minnesota -- the last two as a reserve to Brett Favre -- Jackson signed a two-year deal to become the starter in Seattle in part because of his familiarity with new Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Jackson was then able to help lure Sidney Rice from Minnesota to Seattle.
