Quarter notes: First
In a nutshell: Seahawks 14-7. Russell Wilson threw touchdown passes to Golden Tate and Sidney Rice, after the Vikings took the early lead on Adrian Peterson’s 1-yard scoring run.
Player of the quarter: Wilson. The rookie QB took advantage of Marcus Trufant’s big play – forcing and recovering a fumble - to get the Seahawks even on a TD pass to Tate, then capped a nine-play, 78-yard drive with his 11-yard TD pass to former Viking Rice on third-and-9. Wilson was 5 of 9 for 51 yards.
Plays of the quarter: Quicker than you could say, “Adrian Peterson leads the NFL in rushing,” he broke a 74-yarder to the Seahawks’ 1-yard line on second play of the game. Peterson would have scored if not for a saving tackle by cornerback Brandon Browner. Defensive tackle Alan Branch missed Peterson in the backfield and linebacker Leroy Hill also missed him as he was turned the corner. Then, quicker than you could say, “The Seahawks need a big play,” nickel back Marcus Trufant forced Percy Harvin to fumble and recovered the ball at the Vikings’ 17 to set up Wilson’s TD pass to Tate.
Number of the quarter: 14. The Seahawks’ point total, and the most points they’ve scored in a first quarter this season.
Quarter notes: SecondIn a nutshell: Seahawks 20-17. Adrian Peterson’s second touchdown run of the game tied the score with 11:46 left in the half, and Blair Walsh’s 36-yard field goal gave the Vikings the lead with 5:25 to play. But, Russell Wilson then threw his third TD pass of the half – an 11-yarder to Golden Tate – to give the Seahawks back the lead with 44 seconds remaining.
Quarter notes: ThirdIn 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.
Quarter notes: FourthIn a nutshell: Seahawks 30-20. The homebodies in the all-blue uniforms ran their record at CenturyLink Field to 4-0, and did it by scoring a season-high point total. The final three came on Steve Hauschka’s 40-yard field goal with 6:23 left in the game.
