Quarter notes: Third

In a nutshell: The Seahawks opened the half with an 80-yard touchdown drive to take a 16-10 lead, as Kregg Lumpkin carried the ball for the final 24 yards and the score.

Player of the quarter: Russell Wilson. The rookie QB took over for Matt Flynn and led the No. 2 offense on that 14-play, 80-yard scoring drive. He completed three passes for 36 yards, including a 26-yarder to Anthony McCoy on third-and-17. He also ran twice for 15 yards.

Play of the quarter: Lumpkin’s TD run. It came on third-and-2 and covered 16 yards as Lumpkin bounced the play outside and up the left sideline.

Number of the quarter: 3. Wilson’s uniform number, but it also stands for three-and-out, which is what the Broncos did on each of their possessions in the quarter.
