SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes Cody Barton and Marquise Blair combined to produce a defensive touchdown by the Seattle Seahawks in their preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Seahawks hosted the Chargers on Saturday, August 28.

With 12:37 left in the opening quarter, Barton ran into the backfield and forced a fumble by Chargers quarterback Chase Daniel.

Blair picked up the loose football and took it 17 yards into the end zone for a Seattle score.

Blair’s touchdown gave the Seahawks a 7-0 lead.

Both Barton and Blair were drafted by the Seahawks during the 2019 NFL Draft.

Seattle’s game against Los Angeles is broadcast on the NFL Network.
