Quarter notes: First

In a nutshell: No points, just six punts.

Player of the quarter: Bobby Wagner. The Seahawks’ rookie middle linebacker ended the Dolphins’ second position with an interception and then helped end the third with a hit on Reggie Bush that broke up a second-down pass. Wagner also had all three tackles on the Dolphins’ three-and-out to end the quarter.

Play of the quarter: On the first play of the Dolphins’ second possession, Wagner intercepted a Ryan Tannehill pass that was intended for Davone Bess. Wagner returned it to the Dolphins’ 25. But the Seahawks ended up punting from the 40.

Number of the quarter: 3. The Seahawks went three-and-out on each of their four possessions in the quarter, in part because No. 3 – Russell Wilson – missed Doug Baldwin twice on third-down passes.
