The quarterback looked as if he was in midseason form during his 2019 preseason debut Sunday. He punted three times for a 46.7-yard average, handled kickoffs and made his only extra point try.
Rookie tight end Irv Smith Jr. and backup wide receiver Brandon Zylstra each had touchdown receptions for Minnesota and the Vikings displayed depth and versatility in their passing game in a 25-19 exhibition victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.
Holton was ejected from the game and could face a fine or suspension.
The Seahawks' backup offensive line was thin because of injuries. Lynch remained down on the field for a few minutes and was then removed from the game. Lynch is now in the concussion protocol and his status for Week 3 of the preseason is uncertain. A Sean Mannion pass intended for Chad Beebe was intercepted and returned 88 yards for a touchdown, giving the Seahawks a 10-3 lead in the second quarter. He sacked Denver Broncos' quarterback Drew Lock for a safety during the Seahawks' preseason opener in Week 1. Cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin and Tre Flowers also struggled. It started with a flawless 34-yard pass to Adam Thielen down the sideline, which Seattle challenged for offensive pass interference and lost.
The starting wide receivers produced strong performances. He completed three passes to Tyler Lockett and two passes to Jaron Brown. First-round draft pick D.K. Metcalf did not play because of a leg injury.

So when Trump tweets he doesn't want to see Israel letting these congresswomen in, Netanyahu doesn't. Asked about Trump's attacks on her granddaughter, Tlaib's grandmother said, "I don't know him".
Seattle's starting offense had a couple of good drives going in the first quarter, but one drive stalled because of a penalty on an offensive lineman and another was almost short-circuited by another penalty on an offensive lineman during their second possession.
Seattle had all of its starters play two series, with some staying on the field for a third, playing the Vikings fairly evenly.
Carroll should be able to provide additional updates on Blair and the rest of Seattle's injured players when the Seahawks resume practice later this week after off days on Monday and Tuesday. "That was a handsome play". Rashaad Penny, who looked so good a year ago, struggled with minus-2 yards on six carries. Both teams play their first teams in the preseason at a regular-season pace.
The Vikings won the meaningless contest 25-19.
