On the first play following Andy Dalton's sixth career interception late in the third quarter, Tarvaris Jackson drops back and rainbows the football down the left sidelines. Ben Obomanu sprints past Leon Hall, who appeared to slow as he turned around, not believing the passer would target his receiver. Obomanu hauls in the 55-yard reception giving the Seahawks a ton of momentum. Following a quarterback run to the left for two yards, Marshawn Lynch picked up nine yards off the right edge, giving him 14 yards on the afternoon at this point. Jackson connected with Sidney Rice on a bubble screen to the left, pushing Seattle into the Red Zone.
Lynch was drilled at the line of scrimmage, forced to bounce outside but finding no room for a limited one-yard gain. After a bubble screen to the right for a two-yard gain, Jackson scrambles out to the left and lofts a pass towards the back of the end zone for Sidney Rice, who fell out of bounds with the reception but failing to keep his feet in bounds. Steven Hauschka converts the 25-yard field goal, reducing Seattle's deficit to 11 points.
