In a nutshell: Seahawks 14-7. They took the lead on Russell Wilson’s 4-yard touchdown pass to fullback Michael Robinson with 4 minutes to play, capping a 12-play, 89-yard drive that consumed 8:10.
Player of the quarter: Wilson. What did he do? The rookie QB was 7 of 7 for 66 yards on the TD drive. In addition to the TD pass, he went to Jermaine Kearse for 8 yards on third-and-3 and to tight end Evan Moore on third-and-1. Oh, and he also had a 20-yard scramble to the Dolphins’ 4.
Play of the quarter: It wasn’t really a play, but with 1:44 left in the quarter and the Dolphins driving, the automatic sprinkler system came on – a la the Buffalo Wild Wings’ we-don’t-want-this-game-to-end commercial.
Numbers of the quarter: 18, 89, 11. During the “Kiss Me” segment on the scoreboard, Seahawks wide receivers Sidney Rice (18), Doug Baldwin (89) and Kearse (11) put their arms around one another on the bench and swayed to the music. And the kiss-cam caught them.
