Quarter notes: Second

In a nutshell: Seahawks 17-14. The Seahawks regained the lead on the first play of the quarter, as Marshawn Lynch ran 77 yards for a touchdown. After the defense forced a three-and-out, Russell Wilson passed 9 yards for a TD to Sidney Rice. On the 56-yard drive, 41 came on a pass interference penalty. For those scoring at home, that was 14 points in four plays. But the Lions came right back, as Matthew Stafford passed 46 yards to Titus Young for a TD with 8:49 left in the half to cap a six-play, 80-yard drive.

Player of the quarter: Lynch. He only touched the ball three times in the quarter, but it’s what he did on that first touch – which was go for the longest run of this career. Oh, and score. Lynch’s previous long run had been 56 yards, twice.

Play of the quarter: The first play of the quarter, as Lynch took a pitch from Wilson and ran those 77 yards for the TD. And, the “drive” took only 17 seconds.

Number of the quarter: Two. The number of TD passes Stafford threw in the first half, one in each quarter. All seven of the Lions’ previous seven TD passes this season had come in the fourth quarter.
