Photos of the 68,127 members of the 12th MAN who made it out to CenturyLink Field for the Seahawks 20-13 Week 6 win over the Tennessee Titans.
In a nutshell: Titans 3, Seahawks 0. After the teams exchanged punts to open the game, the Titans drove 72 yards in nine plays to a 38-yard field goal by Rob Bironas. The big plays on the drive were Ryan Fitzpatrick’s pass from the end zone for a 32-yard completion to Kendall Wright and a 5-yard scramble by Fitzpatrick that became a 20-yard gain to the Seahawks’ 30-yard line as Richard Sherman was penalized for hitting the Titans QB out of bounds. Fitzpatrick was 4 of 5 for 55 yards.
Player of the quarter: Fitzpatrick. In his second start for an injured Jake Locker, Fitzpatrick made the plays that led to the only score of the quarter.
Play of the quarter: One that didn’t count, because of a holding penalty on left guard James Carpenter. Free safety Earl Thomas got the Seahawks the ball at the Titans’ 42 with an interception, and Russell Wilson got them to the Titans’ 24 on a third-down scramble. Instead, the Seahawks had a third-and-15 at the 47 because of the holding penalty.
Number of the quarter: 0. Points for the Seahawks, their third scoreless first quarter of the season.
In a nutshell: Titans 10, Seahawks 7. The Seahawks finally took the lead on a 1-yard run by Marshawn Lynch with 2:41 left in the half – a 1-yard run on fourth-and-goal. The play capped a 12-play, 74-yard drive that included two third-down conversions – Russell Wilson’s 12-yard scramble to Titans’ 44 on third-and-4 and Lynch’s 6-yard run to the Titans’ 30 on third-and-2 – and Wilson’s 28-yard pass to Doug Baldwin to the Titans’ 2. Wilson was 5 of 6 for 55 yards. The Titans had a first down at the Seahawks’ 41 late in the half, but Walter Thurmond broke up a second-down pass and Michael Bennett got an 8-yard sack on third down to force a punt that never happened because Brett Kerns fumbled the snap and was tackled at the Titans’ 38 by Chris Maragos. But the Titans scored on the final play of the half as Jason McCourty returned a botched field-goal attempt 77 yards for a TD. Maragos was the holder, because holder Jon Ryan was the kicker, because Steven Hauschka was in the locker room with a possible concussion.
Players of the quarter: Wilson and Lynch. Wilson got the Seahawks close enough, and Lynch took care of the rest on the TD drive – when Lynch carried four times for 7 yards and caught an 8-yard pass.
Play of the quarter: That goofy field-goal attempt. Maragos fumbled the snap, recovered and then fumbled again as he was attempting the pass the ball. McCourty picked up the loose ball and returned it up the left sideline.
Number of the quarter: 0. Points allowed by the Seahawks’ defense in the quarter, in the quarter when they gave up 10 to the Colts last week and 20 to the Texans the week before – after giving up seven second-quarter points in their first three games.
In a nutshell: Seahawks 10, Titans 10. The second half began as the first half ended for the Seahawks, with them playing give-away. This time it was a fumble by wide receiver Sidney Rice that allowed the Titans to take possession at the Seahawks’ 39. But the defense forced a three-and-out. The Seahawks tied the game on a 31-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka with 4:27 left in the quarter – and with Jon Ryan as the holder. The three-pointer capped a 12-play, 75-yard drive in which Russell Wilson scrambled for 23 yards and also hit his first five passes for 31 yards and was 6 of 7 overall for 40 yards.
Player of the quarter: Wilson. Why? See above.
Play of the quarter: Wilson’s 23-yard run. It came at a time when the Seahawks had to have it, in a drive they had to have.
Number of the quarter: 3. Wilson’s uniform number, but also the points allowed by the Seahawks’ defense through three quarters.
In a nutshell: Seahawks 20, Titans 13. The Seahawks took the lead – again – on a 29-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka to cap a seven-play, 69-yard drive with 11:23 left. The Seahawks came out humming, as Lynch went for 55 yards on a pass from Russell Wilson, Robert Turbin ran for 13 yards and Lynch for 10. But the drive then bogged down and the Seahawks had to settle for three points, despite having a first-and-goal from the 2. The Seahawks got the ball back on a Richard Sherman interception and they extended their lead to 20-10 with 7:33 to play as Lynch scored on a 3-yard run to cap a seven-play, 59-yard drive. Wilson was 3 of 3 for 45 yards, while Lynch caught a 10-yard pass on third-and-4 and got the score. The Titans came right back and drove 69 yards in 14 plays to a 25-yard field goal by Rob Bironas. Ryan Fitzpatrick was 6 of 10 on the drive.
Player of the quarter: Lynch. He did it as a receiver. He did it as a runner. Most importantly, he did it when the Seahawks had to have it. Lynch caught two passes for 65 yards and ran four times for 19 yards on the first two scoring drives.
Play of the quarter: Sherman’s interception, his third of the season. Again, the Seahawks’ All-Pro cornerback locked onto Fitzpatrick’s pass as soon as he turned his head. The pick came on the first play after the Seahawks kicked their go-ahead field goal and got the Seahawks started on the drive to what amounted to Lynch’s game-winning TD.
Numbers of the quarter: 5-1. The Seahawks’ record as they head into a two-game stretch of nationally televised road games against division opponents – the Cardinals in Arizona on Thursday night and the Rams in St. Louis on Oct. 28.
