Aiming to solidify its playoff positioning in the NFC race, the Seattle Seahawks scored a late touchdown as the first half came to a close in their Sunday afternoon showdown with the Miami Dolphins to knot the score, 7-7, at halftime from Miami.
Drives fell short for both teams in the first quarter, as the Seahawks had four consecutive three and outs resulting in punts to begin their game in Week 12. The four drives combined to net Seattle seven total yards.
The Dolphins were equally as inefficient, seeing their first four drives go for little, with three ending in punts and a fourth ending with a Ryan Tannehill interception.
Finally, to start the second quarter, the Seahawks put together some offense, going 43 yards on eight plays, but were forced to punt again. Reggie Bush put some points up on the board for the Dolphins, rushing for a touchdown from 21 yards out to give Miami a 7-0 lead.
As the half wound down, Russell Wilson led the Seahawks on a nine-play, 80-yard drive that ended with his 3-yard touchdown strike to tight end Anthony McCoy to even the score and send the game into the half tied.
