The first quarter of the 2007 season started well with the offense moving the ball and the Bucs taking a 6-0 lead.  Then Seattle took over with Shaun Alexander rushing for 100 yards and the Tampa offense stagnating.  Jeff Garcia and Cadillac Williams both went out with injuries and five sacks did not help matters either.
