In a nutshell: 3-3, as the teams traded short field goals – a 27-yarder by Steven Hauschka with 7:26 to play and a 21-yarder by the Cardinals’ Jay Feely with 34 seconds to play.
Player of the quarter: Marshawn Lynch. He hadn’t played since the second preseason game and was limited in practice all week because of back spasms. But he started and broke a 10-yard run while carrying four times for 17 yards.
Play of the quarter: Nose tackle Brandon Mebane standing Ryan Williams up so linebacker K.J. Wright could stripe the ball. Mebane then recovered the fumble to set up Hauschka’s field goal.
Number of the quarter: 3. The number of points scored by each team, and also Russell Wilson’s uniform number as the rookie QB made his first regular-season start.
