Quarter notes: Third

Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch

In a nutshell: Seahawks 27-20. After the teams exchanged punts, the Seahawks drove to a 3-yard touchdown run by Marshawn Lynch with 4:09 left in the quarter to extend the Seahawks’ lead. But the Vikings then drove 44 yards in six plays to a 55-yard field goal by rookie Blair Walsh with 1:47 left.

Player of the quarter: Lynch. His 3-yard scoring run gave the Seahawks a 27-17 lead, and he also carried for 3, 23 and 4 yards on the drive.

Play of the quarter: On the first play after Lynch scored, Adrian Peterson broke a 28-yard run that helped get Walsh close enough for his 55-yarder – his fifth successful kick from 50-plus in as many tries this season.

Numbers of the quarter: 60 and 61. After Max Unger (No. 60) went out with a hand injury, Lemuel Jeanpierre (No. 61) stepped in a center for the final five plays of the nine-play, 72-yard TD drive.
