In a nutshell: Seahawks 17-14. No scoring, but that doesn’t mean nothing happened. Each team intercepted a pass inside their 10-yard line. And the Lions had a first down at the Seahawks’ 17 as the quarter ended.
Player of the quarter: Matthew Stafford. The Lions QB just kept throwing, and throwing, and throwing. He hit three passes to convert third-and-long situations.
Play of the quarter: The Lions were on the move, as they converted on third-and-11, third-and-8 and third-and-8. But on second-and-3 from the Seahawks’ 29-yard line, Earl Thomas intercepted Stafford’s pass at the 3 that was intended for Tony Scheffler.
Number of the quarter: 1. Calvin Johnson caught his first pass of the game with less than two minutes left in the quarter.
