Pretty much everything else the Seattle Seahawks were doing on offense was failing for most of the first half Sunday. But the Russell Wilson-to-Lockett connection has been working well.

They hooked up for a 51-yard gain in the first quarter, with Lockett adjusting to a Wilson moon ball and making another difficult catch look routine. They hooked up again in the second quarter for a 63-yard touchdown, with Lockett cutting back across the field before outracing Tennessee Titans defenders to the end zone for his third score of the season.

Lockett’s two receptions of 50-plus yards in one game is a first in his career.

The Seahawks took a 17-6 lead after Chris Carson‘s 2-yard touchdown run, which was set up by an Alton Robinson strip sack and a fumble recovery by Kerry Hyder.

After Lockett’s touchdown, the Seahawks had 162 yards on 19 offensive plays. Not counting his two catches, their 17 other plays gained only 48 yards.

Lockett now has seven career receiving touchdowns of of 50-plus yards, one shy of tying Joey Galloway for the most in franchise history.

The Seahawks led 24-9 at halftime.
