Quarter notes: First

In a nutshell: Seahawks 3-0, on Steven Hauschka’s 25-yard field goal with 1:05 left in the quarter. Rookie Bruce Irvin forced a fumble on a punt return that was recovered by rookie Bobby Wagner at the Raiders’ 38 to setup the field goal.

Player of the quarter: Wagner. In addition to the recovery of the Irvin-forced fumble, the middle linebacker also had two tackles on the Raiders’ game-opening drive.

Play of the quarter: Bruuuuuce. After not finding his way onto the stat sheet in the first three games, the Seahawks’ first-round draft choice made his first play a big one with the fumble-forcing tackle on the punt return.

Number of the quarter: 3. We’ve been here before. It’s the uniform number of rookie QB Russell Wilson, and also the total number of points scored in the quarter.
