What happened: Seahawks 10, Chargers 0. The Seahawks got the ball first when the Chargers won the coin toss but deferred, and
Player of the quarter: Turbin.
Play of the quarter: The pass interference penalty in the end zone was big, but Turbin’s explosive burst on his 47-yarder was more impressive. And, it got the Seahawks out of a hole after the Chargers’ first punt was downed the Seattle 2.
Number to note: 8. Number of plays in each of the Seahawks’ scoring drives, and the number of carries Turbin had.
What happened? Seahawks 24, Chargers 7. After the defense forced a three-and-out, the Seahawks drove 62 yards in eight plays to a 1-yard TD run by Russell Wilson. Robert Turbin had carried four times, so the Chargers stacked their front on a third-and-goal play from the 1. Wilson faked to Turbin up the gut and then ran to his right and into the end zone. Wilson also was 3 of 3 for 51 yards, including a 37-yarder to a wide-open
Player of the quarter: Wilson. The quarter featured Wilson at his running/gunning best. All he did was run for two touchdowns, after leading 62- and 67-yard scoring drives with his arm and his legs. Wilson was 7 of 9 for 89 yards in the quarter and also ran three times for 19 yards.

Play of the quarter:
Number to note: 2. As in the Seahawks’ No. 2 defense. Coach Pete Carroll wasn’t happy with the unit’s effort in the opener against the Broncos, and allowing a 14-play, 87-yard TD drive isn’t the way to rectify the situation.
What happened? Seahawks 41, Chargers 14. The Seahawks ran their led to 34-14 – literally – when
Player of the quarter: Pryor. He let his legs do the talking with the 44-yarder and also had an 8-yard scramble to open the 10-play, 80-yard drive that ended with his long run.
Play of the quarter: Pryor’s 44-yarder. He faked the handoff to a back, then rolled to his left and was gone.
Number to note: 2. It’s Pryor’s uniform number, and why not complete the trifecta of quarter honors by going with something else Pryor in his second game with the Seahawks?
