Quarter notes: Second

In a nutshell: 7-7 at the half. The Dolphins finally broke the drought when Reggie Bush scored on a 21-yard run with 5:13 to play in the half, capping an eight-play, 94-yard drive. But the Seahawks came right back and drove 80 yards in nine plays to Russell Wilson’s 3-yard TD pass to tight end Anthony McCoy with 29 seconds left.

Players of the quarter: The rookie QBs. After having a 16.7 passer rating in the first quarter, the Dolphins’ Ryan Tannehill was 3 of 3 for 49 yards on the TD drive – including back-to-back completions of 23 and 18 yards to move the ball to the Seahawks’ 35. On the Seahawks’ drive, Russell Wilson was 4 of 4 for 55 yards – including a 20-yarder to Robert Turbin on third-and-3, a 7-yarder to Marshawn Lynch on third-and-1, the TD pass and …

Number of the quarter: 7. Each team had seven points, and on the Seahawks’ TD drive Wilson scrambled for 7 yards and hit the 7-yard pass to Lynch.
