Quarter notes: Second

Marshawn Lync

In a nutshell: Seahawks 10-7. The Seahawks tied the score late in the quarter when Marshawn Lynch scored on a 4-yard run to cap a nine-play, 94-yard drive with 2:15 left in the half. Russell Wilson was 4 of 5 for 80 yards on the drive. The Seahawks then took the lead on a 31-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka with 10 seconds left. The officials ruled that the Seahawks had scored a TD on Braylon Edwards’ catch of a 14-yard pass from Wilson, but overruled the call after reviewing the play.

Player of the quarter: Golden Tate. On the Seahawks’ scoring drive, 49 of the 94 yards came on Tate’s third-and-6 catch, as he got past cornerback Tim Jennings along the sideline. Tate also caught an 18-yarder on third-and-4 and a 5-yarder on the drive.

Play of the quarter: The Bears had a fourth-and-1 from the Seahawks’ 15 and Michael Bush leaped over the middle of the line, only to be met by middle linebacker Bobby Wagner. The no-gain stop halted a Bears’ drive that had begun at their 12-yard line in the first quarter.

Number of the quarter: 51. That’s how many rushing yards Marshawn Lynch had in the first half, which was more than he had in the games here the past two seasons (44 and 41).
