Chris Carson Showing Why He’s the Clear No. 1 Back in Seattle

One week after a head-scratching two-fumble preseason outing against the Chargers, Chris Carson got back to showing why he’s earned the Seahawks’ starting running back spot the last two fall camps.

In the first half of a 21-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Friday, Carson was efficient and effective. And this is against mostly first-teamers from the No. 2 rushing defense in the National Football League last year.
