Seahawks 41, Vikings 20

Harvin's return is big in his return

SEATTLE — Every chance he got last week, Percy Harvin asked coach Pete Carroll for a chance to not just make his awaited debut in Seattle but to do it both as a wide receiver and a kick returner.

Harvin, the former Florida star, finally got a chance to deliver.

His 58-yard kickoff return late in the first half set up Russell Wilson's 19-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin as the Seahawks rolled to their franchise-record 13th straight home win.

And they did it against Harvin's former team, the Vikings.

"It was something I wanted real bad and not just because I wanted to make a big play, but I'm a kick returner so I wanted to get back there and get a feel for the kick returning again," Harvin said.

He missed the first 10 weeks after hip surgery, and after the game he revealed that he had an appendectomy last fall and a benign tumor was found in the appendix.
