Quarter notes: Third

Russell Wilson

In a nutshell: Seahawks 13, Rams 10. The Seahawks took the second-half kickoff and drove 55 yards in seven plays to a 49-yard field by Steven Hauschka. The big play was Russell Wilson’s 49-yard pass to tight end Anthony McCoy on a third-and-2 play, as the Seahawks netted 1 yard on their other five offensive snaps. The Rams took the ensuing kickoff and drove 60 yards in 11 plays to a 39-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein that made it 10-6 with 5½ remaining in the quarter. The drive included a 15-yard run by Steven Jackson and Sam Bradford’s 8-yard pass to Austin Pettis on third-and-7. The Seahawks regained the lead, 13-10, when Wilson passed 10 yards to fullback Michael Robinson for a touchdown to cap a six-play, 65-yard drive. The big play was Wilson’s 31-yard pass play to Golden Tate on third-and-5.

Player of the quarter: Wilson. He was 4 of 5 for 61 yards on the go-ahead drive.

Play of the quarter: Wilson’s third-down pass to Tate. It wasn’t a TD, but the Seahawks would not have scored the go-ahead TD without it.

Number of the quarter: 26. The TD pass was Wilson’s 26th, tying Peyton Manning’s NFL rookie record from 1998, and also a completion to No. 26 – Robinson.
