The Vikings combination of quarterback Dante Culpepper and Wide Receiver Randy Moss proved to be to much fire power for the hapless Seahawks secondary which spent the better part of the game chasing Moss.
Culpepper was 21-for-33 for 274 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers as the Vikings offense rebounded from a last week's woeful performance against the St. Louis Rams.
Culpepper threw two bombs to put the game out of reach, a 45 yarder to Moss and a 43 yarder to Kelly Campbell to start the fourth quarter. Minnesota 27 Seattle 7.
The 8-5 Seahawks will be on the road again next week as they face the 9-3 St Louis Rams.
Bobby Engram left the game with a concussion and his status is unclear.Shaun Alexander finished the game with 56 yards on 14 carries. Viking running back Michael Bennett 103 yards on 25 carries. Hasselbeck finished the day with 218 passing yards on 17 of 34 attempts and two interceptions.
