Quarter notes: First
Seahawks 10, Raiders 3
In a nutshell: Seahawks, Raiders. The Seahawks took the opening kickoff and, in the only series for the starters, drove 80 yards in six plays to a 3-yard touchdown run by Robert Turbin. Russell Wilson was 3 of 3 for 68 yards, including a 50-yarder to Stephens Williams and a 20-yarder to rookie tight end Luke Willson on third-and-1, and also ran once for 11 yards. The Seahawks defense then forced a three-and-out as Leo end O’Brien Schofield broke up a pass on third-and-3. The Seahawks then scored again, on a 56-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka. The drive started at the Raiders’ 42-yard line after Walter Thurmond broke a 29-yard punt return. The Raiders got on the board against the Seahawks’ No. 2 defense, driving 52 yards in 10 plays to a 45-yard field goal by Justin Medlock.
Player of the quarter: Luke Willson. In addition to his 20-yard catch-and-run on third down on the opening drive, the rookie tight end also caught an 11-yarder from Tarvaris Jackson on third-and-6 on the drive to Hauschka’s field goal.
Play of the quarter: The long reception by Williams. Another long reception by the 6-foot-5 Williams, who already had TD catches of 42, 38 and 42 yards in the first three preseason games. But the 50-yarder came with a price, as Williams went to the locker room to be checked out for a possible concussion.
Number of the quarter: 1. Series played by the starters.
