Well, other than the final play, you mean? … The Seahawks were measured and restrained for most of the first half. Their first four possessions resulted in four punts, and Russell Wilson had not completed a pass longer than 14 yards. But in the second quarter, on first down from the Green Bay 41, Wilson dropped back to pass and had plenty of time. He waited patiently for Tate to get free behind the defense for Seattle’s longest play of the season.
It all came down to the final play, a pass lofted by Wilson into the end zone. In a scrum of several players, Tate went up for the ball and came down with it, according to the officials.
• The Seahawks — who never had more than five sacks in any game last season — totaled eight in the first half alone. That was the second-highest first-half total in NFL history. The Giants had 10 first-half sacks against the Bears in 2010.
• Seattle’s third-quarter offensive total: minus-1 yard. Wilson didn’t even attempt a pass, though he was sacked and Seattle faced an impossibly long third-and-37 after a penalty.
