Quarter notes: Third

In a nutshell: Seahawks 19-0, as Matt Flynn directed a nine-play, 90-yard touchdown drive that ended with his 4-yard scoring pass to rookie tight end Cooper Helfet with 4:29 left in the quarter.

Player of the quarter: Flynn was 5-of-5, to four different receivers, for 48 yards on the TD drive. There also was another 27 yards on a pass interference penalty, as the Raiders’ Mike Mitchell drilled rookie tight end Sean McGrath before Flynn’s pass arrived on the first play.

Play of the quarter: Pick one from Bruce Irvin’s portfolio on the Raiders’ second possession of the quarter. The rookie end combined with Byron Maxwell for a sack on the first play; Irvin then forced an incompletion by hitting Terrelle Pryor as he was throwing; and he chased Pryor out of bounds on third-and-13.

Number of the quarter: 0. The Raiders’ point total through three quarters. That works, and then some.
