The Seattle Seahawks took a 10-0 lead over the Dallas Cowboys thanks to a slew of early special teams blunders. The game slowed down quickly after that, with both sides exchanging punts back and forth without much action in between. Tony Romo and the Cowboys managed to out-gain the Seahawks while out there most of the time, but haven't been able to finish out drives.
At the start of the third quarter, both teams picked up where they left off: exchanging punts and not getting very far. That is until there was about five minutes to go in the quarter, when Marshawn Lynch broke a 36-yard run on a second and seven, taking the ball into Dallas territory. Two plays later, Russell Wilson hit Anthony McCoy for a 22-yard touchdown to make it 20-7.
Dallas took back over and drove a little, but penalties set them back, and they were forced to punt near the end of the half. Seattle took over at their own 12-yard line and a five-yard rush from Marshawn Lynch brought the quarter to an end.
